Titled “Tanzania”, the new single puts on display what Waffles has to offer as a solo artist. The single is assisted by fellow South African’s Tony Duardo, Sino Msolo and Boi Bizza. The self-produced Amapiano track, “Tanzania” is a combination of heavy elements of production, from the bass to the kicks on the beats. The track sees the performers singing in their dialect, over the melodious production of the beat, giving listeners and fans an insight on what to expect on the talent’s debut.
