Kelvin Momo Reveals When He Will Be Dropping His Next Project
Kelvin Momo Reveals When He Will Be Dropping His Next Project. Kelvin Momo (born Thato Kelvin Ledwaba in Diepkloof, Soweto in 1994) is a leading light of “private school amapiano,” a variation of the genre that employs elements of jazz, deep house, and lounge.
The producer’s 2020 debut album, Momo’s Private School, released under amapiano pioneer Kabza De Small’s label Piano Hub, is driven by darting keys and lush pads, replaced amapiano’s customary grit with a refined sheen, resulting in a stone-cold classic. That same year, he followed the record up with the EP Bayeke, released in collaboration with his partner, the producer/vocalist Babalwa M.
This year, Kelvin has announced that he will be dropping his next project on May 2022. Kelvin Momo is exactly what his fans refer to when they say “private school piano”. You’re not sure if you’re listening to Jazz or house. His fans were quite happy with the fact that the star will be dropping a new project for them to indulge in soon.
In 2019, he released singles such as the atmospheric “Abantu Bethu” with C.A. Souls as well as the breezy smash “Yelele” with Luu Nineleven and DJ Stoks, and was featured heavily on the ninth edition of the influential label House Afrika’s Mzansi House compilation.
