Last month, producer and hip hop artist, Anatii, revealed that he would be releasing a new album, Iyeza, and that the project would have no features.
The project Iyeza will be Anatii’s second solo album and consists of 10 tracks.
“This album is spiritual and therapeutic. I had to dig deep and connect with my people. I went to Durban, Eastern Cape and LA for inspiration” Anatii spoke on the album.
The cover artwork for the Iyeza album was credited to Nika Mtwana – @nikamtwanaart – who is said will receive royalties from the sales of the Iyeza album.
“I feel that we don’t appreciate our counterparts in the arts. I was super inspired when I saw Nika’s work. We met when I was shooting my UN public service announcement and I knew that we needed to do something together” said Anatii in relation to the artwork.
Anatii held a listening session for the album at The Vault at the Mapungungwe Hotel, Johannesburg and expressed gratitude for everyone who was involved. The album launch for the Iyeza album was held at Taboo Night Club in Sandton which saw the likes of DJ Vigi’ and Sliqe amongst others.
