“It’s a new day! New day! New day! Beautiful day.”
“It’s a new day! New day! New day! Beautiful day...”
These lyrics over the past few days have managed to hack into my mind. I constantly find myself singing the words from a well baked song by a young House music vocalist with a smooth, sweet and silky voice. The lyrics belong to a song titled “New Day” by Lil Soul.
Born and bred in Daveyton, east of Johannesburg, South Africa Mpho “Lil Soul” Dlamini has over a short period of time in the music scene managed to dazzle and grace crowds in South Africa. The humble and ever smiling Lil Soul is at his best when making music and bringing joy to audiences.
The vocalist, deejay and producer is highly inspired by big time international music acts such as US rapper Jay-Z, Canadian rapper Drake, and South African acts Dj Oskido, Dj Christo and famous Jazz band Stimela. When asked why his highly inspired by such musicians he simply replied ”My hustle is no different from that of the acts I’ve just mentioned and another thing is I happen to enjoy their music.”
Being featured by the likes of YFM Breakfast show host Mo’Flava on his compilation House of Flava Vol 1, Dj Terrance, Dj Claude, Afro Lounge and also being featured on one of Soul Candi sessions motivated Lil Soul to start focusing on putting together a 13 track debut album titled “Black and White”. Working with the likes of the Infinite Boys, Abicah Soul, Dj Cuba, Mono Deluxe and Sculpture Music help in putting together an of high quality and of international standards ... with tracks such as “New Day”,” Ecstasy” and “Sunshine” this is one album that’s hard to skip tracks.
