Formerly known as Mbalangadja, kwaito artist Shoombe has announced his forthcoming album ‘No Under 18’ following the release of his viral single ‘Iitasha’, which set tongues wagging because of the profanities in the lyrics.

With three albums under his belt, Shoombe told tjil that his name change comes with changes to his music as well.

“Iitasha is my lead single from the album ‘No Under 18’ which is targeted at the more astute music audience because of its content.

“The lead single may be about sex but the album will also carry messages about alcohol and drugs, hence I am warning music listeners with the title,” he said.

He mentioned that that the album will be available on streaming platforms as well as physical copies.

“I am not worried about the album not getting played on radio. With its lyrical content, I already know it won’t be, but streaming platforms allow artists to directly feed their music to their fans,” said Shoombe.

Summing up the conversation with tjil, he said he was excited about the dialogue his album will spark.

“The profanities are not only lived experiences but something I have observed within my surroundings as well, so I am certain there is a group of people out there ready to consume this type of music,” he said.
