With a mark of three albums in just over 10 years as a solo artist – Tumi Molekane has decided to drop a surprise album ‘Return Of The King’ for his fans. The release of this album was accompanied by an open letter on his facebook page that explains the story behind the album.
“I want people to purchase my album because they buy my story and believe my music, and I didn’t want a loud tasteless campaign interfering with that,” he says.
The album includes collaborations with Busiswa, Simphiwe Dana, Kelly Khumalo, Saul Williams, and Commander Obbs.
“All of us huddled together to help me create Return Of The King. I named it that because I am a leader in my genre and I have spent over 15 years pursuing great. It gives me great pleasure to announce on this day, the 16th of June the release of my album. Enjoy. My name is Tumi and I am a King,” he adds.
The album is available for purchase on iTunes.
