Surrounded by his peers, supporters, loved ones and fans, South African Rapper, SOLO, launched his long anticipated sophomore album ‘Dreams.B.Plenty’ earlier this week.
Set against the backdrop of one of Johannesburg’s most stylish and elegant venues, ‘The Park House of Events on 7’, located in the heart of Hyde Park Corner, SOLO performed 13 out of the 17 tracks from the album supported by his live band, (‘The Dreamcatchers’) alongside Buks and songstress Elo who are also featured on the album.
The ‘take off’ theme for the launch was taken from the album concept, which is based around the airport and tells the story of SOLO searching for a balance in a space that demands overachievers.
“Dreams.B.Plenty paints a picture of falling in between making strides and still chasing a greater goal”
The launch was attended by fellow musicians, Reason, Blaklez, Kabomo and some of SA’s favourite actors such as Tumisho Masha, Neo Ntlatleng, Tango Ncetezo, Altogise Lawrence and Fulu Magovhani who are featured in skits on the album.
In an interview with V-Entertainment, SOLO confirmed that it would only make sense to push his latest single release, ‘Jubilee no LigaMo.’ The song is described as “very emotive” and “the type of ‘heart on a sleeve’ music that Solo has become synonymous with.”
“The Dreams.B.Plenty launch was the perfect way to gear up for the release of the album. A showcase that has let the music speak and show off my artistic growth. Thank you to my BETR Gang team, everyone who came through to show their support and last but not least all my sponsors, ‘The Park House of Events on 7’ for providing the venue, ‘Keystone Group’ who provided all my technical requirements, ‘Anglo African Events’ for making [that] night possible and my PR team ‘African Star Communications’” said Solo in a statement.
