We are joined in the studio by soul singer Leon John. The Zimbabwean and South African singer gathers inspiration from both his Xhosa and Karanga roots, which reflects deeply in his debut EP titled “To Be Continued”, which boasted the singles “Wandishiya” and “Somebody” which are some of the favourites due to their way of evoking emotions, and their demonstrations of strong vocal tones.
Leon is one of the few young singers who is reviving the afro-soul genre in Africa, as a number pioneers of the genre have seemed to have passed on. He has become apart of the new generation of soul singers. Mid 2018 saw him release his debut EP, which gained over 50 000 streams, which is a great feat for a new artist, who is helping to revive one a genre amongst the youth, with many saying that he epitomises the words soul and spirit. The young singer grew up in Egypt but moved to South Africa to study. His travels and time abroad reflects through his sound, as he draws inspiration from his travels trying to heal inner hurt through the power of music.
