The young creative, who was raised in Zimbabwe, has been enjoying a heady ascent into stardom as a pop star with the full package; Donel sings, writes, dances, performs and presents. Sonically his music fuses afrobeat with contemporary pop and R&B, delivered with an infectious energy with ‘WISH YOU WELL’ acting as another self-penned example.
Speaking on the new single and his relationship with MR EAZI and EMPAWA AFRICA, Donel quotes;
“Working with Eazi is great – he was the first artist to reach out and show me support, and now he’s given me a great opportunity to showcase my music with his company. When we link up it’s always a great vibe, I feel like his little brother! He’s always giving me feedback on how to improve my music and as a mentor I always take his advice on board. I’m very grateful to have him in my corner.”
