My Yoki Yoki singer Vhudi has confirmed that there's an album on the way. In an exclusive interview with Briefly.co.za, the musician also dismissed claims that he has signed a contract with any record label.
The star was recently booted out of Idols SA and many viewers speculated that the judges had to let him go because he has already found a stable.
"I'm doing this as an independent artist," Vhudi explained.
Mzansi fell in love with Vhudi when he auditioned for the singing competition in Johannesburg. He sang his own original song My Yoki Yoki and it became an instant hit. Even the judges of the show bopped their heads and sang along with him.
Vhudi told Briefly.co.za that he wanted to be original as possible on the popular music competition and he did exactly just that.
"I did exactly what I went to Idols for. I only wanted to be myself and that's what I did."
He said he learnt on Idols that "without pressure there's no growth". The star also advised peeps who wish to enter the music competition to be themselves.
"Go there and do you."
Vhudi expressed that he is currently not in a love relationship because of his commitment to his art.
"No. I'm currently just focusing on my music."
Vhudi said he would like to collaborate with artists such as Master KG, DJ Tira, Sho Madjozi and Makhadzi, among others. He said he can't choose one specific artist because he likes all of them.
"It's difficult to choose because I admire all these artists for different reasons and I'd love to work with them in the future."
In other Vhudi news, Briefly.co.za reported that the musician has explained the meaning of My Yoki Yoki. The 20-year-old man has been trending on social media ever since he performed the song on Idols SA.
The rising star has revealed that he was trying to impress a girl when he wrote the number. Instead of impressing the girl, Vhudi impressed thousands of the show's viewers. Even though many did not even understand the lyrics of the track, his talent was enough to impress.
The young man from Limpopo has explained the true meaning of the epic song.
"I was trying to impress someone when I wrote the song. I didn’t get the girl, but she was very excited about the song. Yes, My Yoki Yoki is shortened from 'My Yonkinto’. It just came up as I was writing the song."
