Former Popstars winner Oscar T has dropped his debut solo album titled Disconnected. The 32-year-old star, whose real name is Oscar Toorn, recently released the 14-track project.
The singer, who is based between China and South Africa these days, says the album is a "pure labour of love" and a "dream come true".
The album along with the lead single titled One More Reason (Sunday Morning) is available across all major digital platforms.
Oscar rose to fame in 2010 after entering Popstars and was chosen as part of the winning group, Nne-Vida. After releasing their album Ready to Fly, the group disbanded in 2011. Oscar then went on to co-write and produce Kwaito legend Mandoza's single Dance Some More.
The musician told Briefly.co.za that his sound has changed completely since his Nne-Vida days.
"Yes it’s changed completely. My sound and my album come from my own personal life and I know that many people like me go through the same I went through. With Nne-Vida’s I felt like it was more to keep people entertained and dancing. Where in my music I tell a story."
He expressed that from Popstars he learnt to be current and to evolve as an artist.
"Times change and so does your craft and it’s an industry where flexibility will be to your advantage."
The star said he misses performing in front of a live audience. He said he believes the Covid-19 pandemic won't last long.
"I’m praying everyday to be back on stage singing to a crowd that feels my music. My answer is based on my true faith of belief that this pandemic won’t last long."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Cassper Nyovest took to social media to let peeps know that they will have to listen to his upcoming album for a couple of months before they can share their views about it on social media.
He warned peeps that if they don't have time on their hands, they should not play the project. Mufasa has been using Twitter to promote the album. Any Minute Now is set to drop on 11 September.
"If you don’t have time on your hands, please don’t play this album… This aint a fast listen!!! This is a project you need to sit on for a couple of months before you come on the socials to talk about your experience with the music. Those 2 hour reviews are for the birds!!! #AMN."
