I just want to honour some of my collaborations. When 2019 started I didn’t know that I had written South Africa’s most Shazaamed song of 2019 #fetchyourlife. If it wasn’t for @princekaybee_sa and his persistence that song wouldn’t exist. I also didn’t know that Sondela with @tresorofficial would go Platinumb 🚀 (happy for you my friend 👌🏾) What I did know was that I was happy to collaborate and I was gonna leave space for collaborations and support them intentionally and wholeheartedly. I got to work with my talented friends across different media like @francois.knoetze , @gabriellegoliath , @unathimkonto and @nomodernslave. I got to work with an artist I have looked up to for years @realblackcoffee, our process taught me so much 🙏🏾. I’m grateful for being able to have gone on a 7 city tour with the Berlin Youth Orchestra, and for the growing relationship with @johannesburgphilharmonic. @kidxsa thank you for being part of my song too, you are a gem. Looking forward to my 2020 collaborations (wish I could tell you 💆🏾‍♀️😆) but all is aligning as it should #collaboration #msaki ❤️
