New ideas pop up on a daily basis. But for now I’m just building on what I already have,”Bhebhe said.

The solo project has been his dream and the musician believes it is God who placed it upon his heart. “I always knew that God would elevate me musically. But never did I imagine that he would take me this high for just choosing to be obedient to His word. That alone gives the drive and reason to bow down on my knees to worship God all the days of my life.”

In every city we have toured around South Africa, the masses just can’t get enough of ‘Ichokwadi.’ ..The world is hungry for pure African sound.”

The album by Bhebhe is said to hit the streets in December.
