Three months after recording his seventh single Umependeza, Blantyre-based rapper Waache, real name Titus Herman, is in the studio to complete recording his remaining four songs of the 12-track album.
In an interview on Wednesday, the musician said he is finalising four songs of his debut album which he plans to launch early this year.
The hits enjoying airplay on local radio and television stations include the latest Umependeza and Kwenikweni released in October last year.
Said Waache: “My fans should expect more good songs in my debut album and I am optimistic that they will love the album as they love other songs.
“Umependeza, a Swahili titled track, appreciates a woman’s beauty. It means looking nice or attractive. The song features Kell Kay and is produced by Henwood.
Kwenikweni is a love song about a man with a broken heart, asking a girl what he should do for her to accept him. Despite all the good things he does to the her, she still breaks his heart.”
The artist, a song writer and actor in Spouses and Workmates, a local television series in which he acts as a blind man, plans to name his album Platinum Dream.
So far Waache, a Standard Bank plc employee, has done collaborations with artists such as Kell Kay, Bucci, Blaze, Black Jak and Sam Smak in his new album project.
Asked why he engaged a lot of artists in a single album, he said: “The album was designed to have more collaborations.”
The producers he has worked with in the debut album include OBK, Dj Slay, Tricky Beats, Sispence and Henwood.
