Launching his album on the second of September 2016, this graphic designer turned recording artist is diversifying his brand from the onset.
Better known as Luiz Ndala, this 26 year old Afro- Rap artist, has already worked with the likes of Ongoro no Mundu, Okocha and others such as Young Flux, T.I.M and Us Dollar, choosing to work with artists he considers “day one homies”.
“Inception calling” is a track of the upcoming album featuring fellow up-comers such as Young Flux and US Dollar, using the song to tell audiences about the city lights and Harambee.
“I don’t know who else I want to work with but time will tell. Since I do Afro-Rap, any artist with afro sounds that has got a sense of swag to it, we might try out something” said Da lock.
Having started his career when he was in primary school, the young artist has decided to work independently while pushing his record label ‘Profound Music’ with audiences responding well to his music, singing along and being shocked at finding out he is the artist behind the lyrics.
“My Mom is very supportive but my sisters almost gave up on me because I wasted a lot of resources investing in studio times and the album never coming out and stuff like that but as soon as I gave them the final recording demo, I could see them smiling, in a good way” said Da lock
With hobbies such as social networking and creating things, be it graphics or anything generic or innovative, it is no wonder that this artist has one of the few updated Facebook pages locally.
With a packed line up on the night of the album launch, the night of September the second looks to be a night to remember on the social calendar that one should not miss.
