ZIMDANCEHALL artist, Freeman, will launch his 13th album, Trophy, at Alex Sports Club tomorrow with a line-up of artists including Killer T, Jah Prayzah, Delroy Shewe, Sha Sha, Saintfloew, Feli Nandi and EXQ.
The 35-year-old released Trophy yesterday and many of his fans have endorsed it as a triumph.
HKD Band’s public relations manager, Michelle Mukaro, praised the album, calling it Freeman’s latest “magnum opus”, with particular emphasis on the collaborations with other artists.
The album was mixed and mastered by Neilt, with production from Rodney Dj Gwyte, Oskid, Shamex and Tama.
“After the gradual build-up anticipation to mega-star Freeman, HKD proudly presents his 13th full-length studio album, Trophy, today (yesterday) via HKD Records.
“As he sets the tone for the Jacaranda season, HKD Boss has welcomed an A-list cohort of friends to join him for his latest magnum opus.
“For the first time in 10 years, he collaborated with none other than Jah Prayzah, a collaboration which most have been waiting to get, but it only took 11 albums for us to experience it.
“In addition to joining forces with longtime friends, the Nguni brothers Nox and Tyfah, he dazzles us with two other collaborations with Feli Nandi and Saintfloew, making the project a whole TROPHY for the listener.
“Of course, he also reunites with longtime brothers HKD protege and fast-rising “Superstar” Delroy Shewe,” said Mukaro.
The camp hailed Freeman for forging more alliances with others.
“On this album, Freeman enrols the expertise of Neil.T Music, a renowned music engineer known in the music industry as Neilt who offers high-end recording, production, mixing and mastering.
“Neilt mixed and mastered the entire album. For the first time ever, he unleashes Spirit Fingers on the project with songs Man to Man (featuring Nox and Tyfah Nguni) and Bhanan’ana..”
Freeman said this album encompasses a lot for him as an artist.
“The growth, the struggles, and the stories compiled together in a body of work, which to me is the TROPHY. As an HKD Boss project, I have always wanted to grow with my people and the team we work with and that’s why you see there is more of Shamex and Tama this time around.
“These have been a key part of my musical journey and the chemistry has made it easier for us to collaborate as the lead producers,” said Freeman.
Other producers on the project include Rodney Dj Gwyte and Oskid.
