In an interview with PAM, Tresor spoke about stepping out of his comfort zone by working on amapiano sound and his amapiano song writing approach. “My songwriting approach shifts when writing to amapiano. The rhythm, the drums and the moody , dark and sweet sound of amapiano take me back to the source . I write from our our roots with limits and feel free to be inspired by sounds from all over the continent….West African , central africa , East Africa and Southern Africa,” said Tresor.
Speaking on heights he would like the album to reach, Tresor said: “I would really love to see the project reach the whole African continent and connect with different generations as well as introduce the amapiano sound to the global mainstream audience. It’s such a beautiful project and I hope the world will get to connect with it beautifully.”
