Almost two years since signing a record deal with one of South Africa’s powerhouse record labels Ambitiouz Entertainment, Roma-born rapper Malome Vector is set to quench his fans’ expectancy thirst by dropping his new album in the first week of the new year.
In the build-up to the release, he has dropped a number of chart-topping hits most of which are expected to be in the latest offering. Some of his highlights include striking creative gold on Miss Pru “Price to Pay” and his very own “Dumelang” and “Lerato”.
After establishing himself alongside Megahertz now known as Ntate Stunna, Vector’s palpable chemistry with his new stablemates has him at the peak of his collaborative powers.
Titled Karabo, the album is set for release on January 7, 2022, and has features by his compatriots Ntate Stunna and Wave Rhyder, Intaba Ya Se Dubai, Sjava and Blaq Diamond whom he says have contributed production touches.
“I have an incredible chemistry with Blaq Diamond and worked a lot with them on the production side of my album and a number of features as well.
“All I can say is people should expect flames from the project. You will listen to every track without skipping even one because that is how good it is,” Vector said.
The 18 track album features his popular singles “Dumelang” alongside Blaq Diamond, “Nobody” and “Lerato” as well as the new tune “Mollo” featuring Sjava.
And if the hit singles already released are anything to go by, Karabo will surely be a force to reckon with and a platform to see the muso continue on an upward spiral as he continues to build his name musically.
Vector says he prides himself in having built a brand around his heritage, language and culture and says the album is a representation exactly that.
“I am so proud of my Sesotho culture that I thought it makes sense for me to share it with the world and show them that being a rapper can be culturally cool,” he said.
The same trend has been epitomized in his previous work prior to signing with the South African music powerhouse, as in hits such as “Zama Zama”, “Ichu” and “Motho Oaka”.
As a producer himself, Vector did much of the production on the album working with Ndumiso Mdletshe of Blaq Diamond as well as his longtime beats-man and co-producer Ismoke On the Beat.
