Lloyd Cele, last year’s South African Idols runner-up Lloyd Cele will be releasing his debut album soon.
Lloyd, who was born in Durban, has already released his first single ‘You Make It Easy’ from the album which he has named ‘ONE’.
He said he used the R250000 he received from Idols winner and friend Elvis Blue to help co-produce the album.
Loyiso Bala co-wrote and produced the album. Gang of Instrumentals rapper Bongo Riot, and Idols presenter and one of the country’s premier hip-hop performers Proverb also worked on the album. Cele wrote or co-wrote eight of the songs.
Bala told The Times at the SA Music Awards nominees announcement party last week: “We’ve just finished Lloyd’s album. It’s always good to work with a talent, so for me it was great to do some production work for him.”
Sindi Nene, who came third in the competition alst year, is also ready to release her as-yet untitled debut album in June.
