Focalistic Set To Release A New Track Featuring Ghanaian Afropop Artist
Focalistic Set To Release A New Track Featuring Ghanaian Afropop Artist. Lethabo Sebetso also know as Focalistic is not staying down when it comes to introducing amapiano to the rest of the world. The star has done successfully so by featuring some of Africa’s biggest stars, making them jump on a yanos beat.
Focalistic does not seem to be staying down when it comes to flying the SA flag high. The star is now set to release another banger with yet another artist outside Mzansi. Foca took to his social media accounts to tease the new song featuring Ghanaian Afropop star Stoneboy set to drop this Friday.
Speaking on booming right before the pandemic, Foca said the pandemic was a bessing in disguise for his career. “There’s a song where I say I blew up ka Corona, so the wave is a pandemic. So for me it’s like, it’s still the same even after the pandemic, we’ll still be doing what we have to do, touching people’s hearts. I’m not that person, I never think of this might have happened and that’s why “Ke Star” was dropped during the pandemic and went gold during the pandemic. So, I’ve always been a person of fighting the norm so yeah,” he explained.
To Focalistic, the amapiano movement isn’t just about music. He feels like music, which is central to the movement promotes all the previously under-celebrated aspects of African culture. “A lot of this has to do with how we’ve honestly accepted ourselves as Africans. Now, America is looking to us for inspiration. In South Africa, there was a time when we’d go, ‘Oh sh*t, that’s a Nigerian.’ Now, everybody wants to be Nigerian because of the music. We learn a lot from music and music videos. They drive desirability and that’s been aided by the internet. You look at music and you want to be Davido, Burna or Wizkid. You look at Amapiano and you want to dance like a South African. We’re prouder of being African right now,” he said.
