After several months of speculation on the release date, MYFAM Productions “Feels Like Africa” is now available. Filmed in several parts, the video features recent footage from KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa as well as a guest appearance by comedian Michael Blackson, known as the African King of Comedy. The hilarious, yet sexy music video is on youtube. The track is the debut single from the collaborative album “Futurism – Generals on the Mic” which was released on June 5th. Produced by Lowkey, artists featured on this album include Streetball Legend “Half-Man Half-Amazing”, R&B Sensation, Logan, rappers Bruce O’Mighty, Slang, C-Nile the Henchmen and R&B singer, Tish.
Futurism – Generals on the Mic is loaded with hot, sexy and fun tracks that will make your head nod from start to finish once you hit play. “I write songs in my head” says Lowkey. “I had this African drum beat in my head for months, inspired by the movie Shaka Zulu. Right after we filmed the first part of the Feels Like Africa video, my vacation to Egypt was changed to South Africa because of the civil war in Egypt. Although I still want to visit Egypt, the last minute change to South Africa and KwaZulu-Natal made me realize I was on the right track with Feels Like Africa as the debut single.”
Lowkey is receiving rave reviews for his musical talents. As an artist, songwriter and producer, Lowkey is a triple threat in the music industry. His recent production, R&B single “Blow Your Mind” by Logan, is creating a major buzz. The “Blow Your Mind” video, has been in rotation on DJ Uncle Ralph McDaniels renowned television program Video Music Box in addition to Lowkey and Logan being featured in a Video Music Box Artist Spotlight.
