We have been waiting for Samthing Soweto‘s new album titled Isiphithiphithi for so long now and the day has finally come for its release!
The 31-year-old singer-songwriter whose real name is Samkelo Lelethu Mdolomba officially announced his 13 tracks album a months ago on social media.
In an Interview with Justza, Samthing Soweto revealed that the album was inspired by the highs and lows of his life. “Isphithiphithi describes my life. I find my life as going through ups and downs and I feel like a lot of things happened in the time I was starting to record till I finished and it was reflected in my music,” he said.
When asked about the inspiration behind the title track Isphithiphithi, he said it is the city of Johannesburg and the early 1990s era of South African music. “It’s a song about iJozi and love and it’s somewhat of an ode to the old style of music. Such as in Sarafina. That song is modelled after that type of music.”
Isiphithiphithi features Samthing Soweto‘s recently released singles, “Akulaleki,” “AmaDM,” “Lotto,” and “Omama Bomthandazo”.
