Leeknotic’s last works are featured on Sandra Ndebele’s Tshibilika and Bayeke which were both directed by Andy Cutta.
“The song is more of a journey into my life and relationships. I have changed how I approach music and also my sound, those who have known and followed me can attest that I am someone who has sung more about partying and the flashy life. But now I am taking another stance which is to talk about the everyday situations that are faced by people, be it love, relationships, life struggle and also health.
I can say that I have matured musically, my approach to production and also the business side of music has changed,” said Leeknotic.
Born in Harare, Leeknotic has had a stint in Botswana and South Africa before coming back to Bulawayo where he rose to fame under Afro Platinum Music where he released Gqom and house music, before relocating to Harare. B-Metro
