In an interview with tjil, he said the video will serve as a teaser of what fans can expect from his album. “I have released three singles now and this is going to be my second music video. We are done with shooting, we are just waiting for the editing process to finish and we should release it by end of January or early February.
“The main theme of the video is that crime doesn't pay. We had a storyline but we did not want it to come out super-planned and strategic. I just wanted to show off where I come from,” he shared.
He announced that the album is done and will be released in a few months' time. On the album making process, the DJ, back-up singer and dancer admitted that it was quite challenging but fun at the same time. He believes that music changes with every song.
It is for this reason that it becomes challenging for artists who take their time to complete a body of work.
“It is good to take time so you can perfect your craft, but also vibes and trends change rapidly in music so how I dealt with that challenge just by being myself and not letting what is trending out there dictate my sound,” DJ Shoza said.
Even though he would not disclose the title of his album and the exact release date, he promised an enjoyable and diverse project that caters to different music fans. DJ Shoza revealed that at the GMP camp, they let vibes be the compass to their creativity, stressing that they do not like forcing things.
“The same principle applies to our collaborations. We want our collaborations to be as organic as possible. Music just comes out better that way,” he said.
