Khaya Dladla has confirmed to TshisaLIVE that he is working on interesting music, singing in Hindi. You might or might know that Uzalo’s GC can hold a note and he says his music will be something to look forward to.
The actor said he made his name through musicals and he has been waiting for quite some time to introduce South Africa to the singer in him. Let’s not forget that Khaya Dladla is coming from a Theatre background.
“A lot of things are still hush-hush but I’m excited for my music. My music. I’ve been cooking for a long time and scared to release. I sing. I come from musical theatre. My entire career stems from theatre where you often need to sing‚ dance and act. So my music is resurfacing and I had to rework it because I’ve been so nervous to let it go.”
“My first song was supposed to come out a week after Wololo. But when I heard Wololo‚ this is even before it blew up‚ I knew it was a hit and I freaked out. That song was amazing‚ so I was like no no no‚ pull back I’m not releasing this song right now.”
“People like abo Dj Tira said to me‚ ‘you know what you need to let it go. If it’s a nice song it’s a nice song and people will like it and if not they won’t like it and you’ll move on and make another track. So I have been receiving motivation from giants in the industry and they are helping me‚ you know with where I want to be,” Says Khaya Dladla.
Currently, Khaya hasn’t decided on finding his unique touch; he’s planning to release singles of different genres to test the market.
“That was the biggest problem I had‚ in terms of finding my sound. So what we actually decided on was that instead of dropping an album‚ I’ll just drop singles of the different genres I am able to do‚ that I enjoy doing. My album will be directed by the reactions of the singles. So if people respond better to tribal house or to soul music‚ then that’s what I’ll do. I don’t wanna make music that people don’t wanna hear.”
“Well not too long. I’ve been recording my studio sessions but didn’t wanna raise hopes in people. But the music is ready‚ it’s just a matter of timing and I’ve been keeping everything to myself to avoid unnecessary pressure.” Khaya concludes.
Khaya hinted on what we can expect from his masterpieces which includes Hindi and Portuguese languages respectively. If you’ve heard his alter-ego Gold Diva sing or his Uzalo character….. then you will know that hearing Khaya is going to be super exciting.
