The Akanamali hit maker Sun-El Musician continues his sensational rise with him being selected for the New Artist spotlight on Apple Music for May. It means his debut album (releasing 27 April) entitled Africa to the World, will literally be taken to the world as he featured across the Apple Music ecosystem as a hero artist.
The long-awaited DJ-producers’ album Africa to the World is a mix of masterful arrangements and strong vocals featuring local artists Desiree Dawson, Lelo Kamau, S-Tone. The first single Bamthathile spotlights Mindo The Vocalist and looks set to reprise last year’s success.
Says Sun-El Musician, “One of my greatest aspirations is to create timeless, universal dance music; and through Apple Music’s New Artist Spotlight feature this goal transcends from just the dance floor to airwaves all around the world”
