Kasomo said he was looking forward to the album appealling to local youth since his target audiences are the youth.

Before the release of the debut album, Kasomo leaked one of his single tracks to the public titled ILife Kalova also a club hit.

“When I had composed seven tracks in June this year, I leaked one of the tracks to the public so as to gauge my worth in the music industry. I was happy with the response my song received from listeners. Now that I have completed the album I hope my music will continue to appeal to many people in the country,” he said.

Kasomo’s music is composed in Ndebele, Shona, Bemba and Nyanja. The album is a mixture of kwaito and hip-hop.

He revealed yesterday that he was now working on the modalities of sending the album to various radio stations in the country so that his music could receive airplay.
