Lloyd Cele online
With a 3rd album having been released on the 22nd of September and 3 brand new singles out at the same time in 3 different languages, Lloyd Cele is one of the local artists out to prove that good things happen in 3’s.
Lloyd Cele, an avid music lover turned Idols runner-up then SAMA winner, Walela award, Channel O Award + Metro award winner, is looking to build on the success of his 1st single “Tonight” that features as the theme song for Top Billing, marking his memorable spot as a local artist.
Having worked with a number of SA’s top artists in Cassper Nyovest, the Soweto Gospel Choir, Brian Temba as well as CH2 Lloyd wanted to bring a diverse mix of influences to his 3rd album, much like he has done on his previous 2 albums ONE and NO LIMITS.
Lloyd Cele’s sound is about embracing South Africa’s diverse culture, racial groups, and musical influences and fusing them together in his music. As one of South Africa’s prominent local artists, his success in this endeavour is impressive. GREY MATTER, largely written by Lloyd Cele himself, is no different. This is highlighted by the unprecedented, simultaneous release of 3 singles to launch the album. “Ngiyakudinga Mtakwethu” (All I Need Is You) a Zulu song featuring Brian Temba, the Afrikaans single “Dans Met My” and an English single “Who Needs You” have all been unleashed onto the airwaves at the same time and have been playlisted on the top radio stations for those genres.
