Scelo Gowane returns now with the infectious Afro pop, hip hop single ‘Grind’ ft
‘Grind’ Takes Scelo Gowane back to his roots of Hip Hop and R n B. Growing up in B5 surrounded by rappers and rap producers like Tellaman he had no other option but to sing hooks on their tracks. Based in Durban it’s very hard to miss an Indian influence from food, to their culture and their music. So when he got another opportunity to work with Indian Rapper Ndot, he pushed himself to fuse Indian sounds into the beat, then mixing that beat with Zulu lyrics. It just takes the track to another level and makes a song like no other South African RnB artist has done before.
The song talks about working hard to get ahead in life. What you see on the Television and Magazines is normally the final product and you miss the hard work to get to that point in life. He is trying to inform people that no matter what you want in life you got to just get your grind on (keep working hard).
GRIND Will be available 29 June 2018 on Itunes / Apple Music and all other retailers to follow.
