Musa Keys On Why He Is Not Signed To Any Record Label. Record producer Musa Keys who has been trending lately dropped a new killer track titled ‘Vula Mlomo’ where he featured Sir Trill and Nobantu Vilakazi. Musa Keys’ “Vula Mlomo” is a marriage of the chilled, vocal and sgubhu-centric pockets of amapiano. While Sir Trill’s romantic vocals carry the track, it’s Nobantu Vilakazi’s signature and addictive chant that take it to a trance-inducing peak. “Vula Mlomo” has topped charts on many digital platforms as well as become a favourite to many yanos lovers.
Musa Keys is not signed by any record label, even though he got approached by multiple recording labels. The star has his own record label called Keys Records. Some of the challenges that he has encountered is that in the music industry there are gate keepers who will try to keep you away, and some people will only want to work with you when it is beneficial to them. “There are some gigs you cannot get because you do not want to pay accordingly or even sign a contract, there are also many other things I would not disclose,” he said. With the growth and the love that his music is receiving, he expressed that he does not feel any pressure yet to be an example to other young artists from Limpopo, although he does have people seeking advice from him.
Musa has been making music for the past seven years and he recalled that despite the waves that he is making, he produced his first song at the age of 14 years. “I completed my first and official song with a friend who goes by the name of Fuego at the age of 16 years. The trap EP (five song album) can be downloaded on Audiomack and Soundcloud,” he said. He said that it was inspired by musicians like Chris Brown and Bryson Tiller, among others, who were already in the game.
