Sam Deep tells Apple Music abut his album, ‘iMALI YE NTWANA’
iMALI YE NTWANA is a title that I chose from the song which is on the album, with MalumNator. Earlier this year I did the song, then I heard the words “iMALI YE NTWANA” and I thought yeah, why not name the album iMALI YE NTWANA?
I felt like the title means something to me too, because I’m at the point in my life where I felt like I needed something different, because if you check my catalogue I’ve been releasing singles and EPs only, so I just felt like it’s time to give the people a beautiful body of work, you know, something they can jam to and everyone gets their own favourite song. It’s an album where I’m going to get my breakthrough, it’s really something different and something big for me, especially where I am with the hits coming along.
