South African hip hop heavyweight Ma-E, of Cash Time (formerly of Teargas ) has released his debut album titled ‘Township Counsellor’ on iTunes. Billed as one of the biggest albums of the year, the project features contributions from AKA, PRO, Maggs, Moozlie, KidX and Emtee.
South African blogs and hip hop fans are abuzz and eager to hear the album due the caliber of producers behind the album, most notably Zimbabwean Grammy winning producer Brian Soko who co-produced three of the records partnering with Tatenda Kamera(Mr Kamera), Choolwe Munyati (Wichi1080) and Emir Shakes.
Soko shared, “This is great history for South African hip hop, Ma-E is a legend out here and he always strives for perfection. I want to thank Kamera, Wichi and Emir who worked on three records we did, they brought their A game, these songs have been in making for quite some time so it’s fantastic to hear the final product. Ma E was very hands on and involved in every aspect of this album and we at Anashe are honored to have been able to assist him with his vision.”
Ma-E took to Instagram to thank the Anashe Media Group affiliated producers; Kamera produced track #7 titled ‘Lie 2 Me’ that features award winning artist AKA, Zambian producer Wichi1080 produced track #12 ‘Ok’Salayo’ that features award winning newcomer Emtee and finally track #14 ‘Uyangizwa’ was produced by Emir Shakes based in Malaysia a protegee of Soko.
