Multi-award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and composer, Samthing Soweto and certified hitmaker, DeMthuda, officially kick off summer 2020 with their new single titled Weekend.
When speaking about the inspiration behind the song, the talented vocalist simply said, “I believe in alone time. You can find yourself doing a lot of things for people throughout the week, but the weekend is mine.”
Earlier in the year, Samthing Soweto was the only artist to feature twice on Cassper Nyovest’s album Any Minute Now’with fan-favourite Friday Night and Ngwanesu. The rapper took to Twitter to express how he felt about working with the talented musician, “Samthing Soweto is an amazing artist. A soothing voice and a special talent. Been meaning to work with him and he blessed me tonight.”
2019 saw Samthing Soweto dominate charts with the hit-single Amantombazane off the Scorpion Kings’ self-titled album. He then went on and officially established himself as a household name with the success of Akulaleki featuring Sha Sha (certified platinum), AmaDM featuring MFR Souls, DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small; and Lotto featuring Mlindo The Vocalist.
Samthing Soweto, the record-breaking singer, broke the South African Apple Music record for the highest number of pre-adds for his debut album Isiphithiphithi before the official launch, while simultaneously holding the number one spot with his single Akulaleki. This South African record was previously held by international superstar Billie Eilish.
It would have never been summer without Samthing Soweto’s voice playing on long drives home, in cars passing by, with friends or at the festive season’s biggest events.
