THE HEALERS, the last chapter

With their highly anticipated 10 years of Black Motion album, they promise us a blissful experience. With the title THE HEALERS, the last chapter, we hope that this does not mean what the title insinuates. A notion that which some of us may have been interpreted as the last offering from the duo from title they have chosen,

The album promises to take us through a process and great place filled with a frisson of excitement. The latest release of their second single which features the song-bird Msaki titled Mary Me give us a glimpse of the kind of album we can expect. With talented producers & vocalists appearing on the album track list such as Sun-El Musician who has had us in our feelings ever since he came to the scene. We can also expect some Limpopo vibes featuring King Monada who always catches us slipping, the album sure promises to be a host of great tracks. Including recent offerings featuring renowned producer and vocalist Afrotraction.
