But we as an industry are on course and above all we need Jesus Christ to lead the way as we follow.”
During this Covid-19 period, where artistes are limited in their ability to perform live, musicians have taken advantage of digital platforms, “…there was no other way around it but through, so covid has caused all sectors of livelihood to digitize which in turn has made the world a lot smaller and assessable”
On 17th December Pezzy Cables will be releasing his latest single titled ‘Sojo’. “I wanted to think of a way of singing about love in a not so obvious way. So, I thought of games we used to play as kids and coined the Sojo game in a romantic way, so that’s how Sojo was born”. As far as 2022 goes Pezzy’s fans can expect a lot from him, “They will hear a side of me they haven’t heard of before, I have had a shift in mindset and I have grown over the years.
