The weekend is upon us as usual, but do not let this weekend pass you by without vibing to some of South African’s amazing music projects, such as album, EP and mixtape released in 2020.
When the year started with the outbreak of coronavirus, it seem the music industry will have the most dulling output.
However, we got struck by the amazing energy most of the artists dished.
No gigs to sing out, no parties to rock these songs, thanks to apps such as Tik Tok and Triller; People did the most on those apps with hit songs released this year.
Here are 5 South African Music Projects released in 2020 to enjoy this weekend.
