The third of April 2020 marks the day on which ShabZi Madallion releases his debut album of which he announced just over a year ago. After a stretch in the game; the season 1 Vuzu Hustle runner-up has released a couple of projects over the years; of course, we won't forget to mention the consistency in dropping music every year.
Named after his mother, Nomvula springs over 17-tracks, with features coming in from PdotO, Nandile, Payseen, Big Star, Nelz, Erick Rush, as well as Zikhona. ShabZi Madallion had this to say about the album and his mothers reaction to it; "I showed my mother the album cover and she still really couldn't believe I named my album after her. Nomvula got me my first computer (second hand), bought me my first beatmaking software, spoke life into my dreams waaaay before ANYBODY knew about them, when it was all just a "hobby", Nomvula adjusted a lot of her ways to make space for me to cultivate this "music thing" in the very beginning... A very pertinent phase for me because I don't think I'd be where I am without her. Naming my album after you, is me paying homage to you MA, acknowledging all the rain you endured just to ensure that I was cultivating something that brought me happiness and purpose! You are my hero for that and I can't thank you enough! NOMVULA."
A proud moment for the game, and for ShabZi Madallion, peep his debut album Nomvula below;
