The South African Hip Hop scene is one of the most competitive industries and finding a stable that will work hard enough to take you to the top isn’t easy, so the moment you spot one good enough to meet your needs as an artist, you sign on the dotted lines and hope for the best.
Just a couple of days ago, Warner Music South Africa announced a new partnership with multi-talented MC, Bigstar Johnson. The first single ‘sgubu’, featuring Kwesta, will be released on 3 August 2018. His debut album is scheduled for release at the end August.
“Currently I’m at a place where I’m the most comfortable I’ve ever been in the industry. And I’m finally at a place where I feel I can express myself, so I’m hella excited about the future and what it holds for me . ‘Me & Mines’ is about to bless the nation with some variety. And signing a licensing deal with Warner allows me to make these ideas I got a reality. Above all else, I’m most looking forward to meeting my daughter for the first time and seeing the world react to the type of music I love making.”
Says Big Star Johnson,
“We are thrilled that Bigstar Johnson has chosen Warner Music South Africa as his home. He is such a talented artist and an even better human being. The album is spectacular, we can’t wait for the world to hear it.”
