SOUTH Africa-based ace music producer, Mr Brown, says he feels loved after setting up a recording studio in Mt Pleasant, Harare.
The producer, who alternates between Johannesburg and Harare, claims he got 10 000 new followers following the release of Alick Macheso and Makhadzi’s duet, Shampopo.
The 33-year-old produced the song.
In an interview with H-Metro, Mr Brown – real name Lynol Siwela – believes he is beginning to win the hearts of his kith and kin.
“I’m overwhelmed by the support that I am receiving from locals ever since I decided to set up a studio in Harare to promote my people.
“Currently, I can’t ask for more as people are showing me genuine love following the release of Macheso and Makhadzi’s duet.
“The song is trending well on the charts and many local artists are now asking for my services in Zimbabwe,” he said.
Mr Brown was also humbled by the growing number of his followers on social media.
“Within a short space of time, I was shocked to realise that I now have 10000 new followers as a result of the Macheso and Makhazi song. On the 14th of October, I will perform the song alongside Macheso and Makhazi for the first time in Kadoma.
“I can’t ask for more after being given this offer to be able to perform the song live in front of a live audience.” Mr Brown says he is set to release a new amapiano song featuring Master KG, DJ Ngwazi and Jah Signal next week.
“After the Makhadzi song, fans should look forward to a new song named Eriya NeUber to be released next week.
“This is one of my biggest projects because it features some of the continent’s best including Master KG, DJ Ngwazi and our own Jah Signal.”
Mr Brown is also working with Parazai Mesi.
“I made contact with Paradzai Mesi’s handlers and we are currently busy in the studio working on something new. It will be a new and refreshing sound that you have never heard from him.
“He is very talented but we want to make him a superstar,” he said.
After setting up Mr Brown Music (MBM) Studios in Mt Pleasant, he has been working with several local artists on a project dubbed Zim Amapiano Volume 1.
He has produced eight tracks by Akon, Master KG, Zandamaz, Zanda Zakuza, Nomcebo, Papa Penny, Kabza de Small, Cassper Nyovest, Big Zulu, Boity, Focalistic and Botswana’s Vee Mampeezy, among others.
