Mavin Records golden boy Rema has ignited hope amongst ravers that his highly anticipated debut album will be dropping soon.

Rema had already shared the title of his album months ago but since then remained silent over the project. The album titled 'Rave& Roses' was expected to be made available before the of the year. And after several months of keeping off the subject, Rema has dropped a hint that it is finally on its way.

In a tweet, alongside a short video of him in several studio sessions, the singer and songwriter said "Rave&roses, clock ticking" a statement that might simply be translated that the album will be coming sooner than later. 

Rema has already had an impressive 2021, dropping two major hits 'Soundgasm' and 'Bounce' as well as a number of features.

He recently received two nominations at the MOBO Awards for the Best International Act and Best Africa Act - one of the only two Nigerian artists alongside Wizkid to be nominated in two categories.

South African artist Focalistic is 2021’s musician of the year courtesy of the third annual GQ Men of the Year Awards. The awards were held at the Four Seasons Hotel, The Westcliff in Johannesburg, in collaboration with Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège on Saturday evening.

The famous awards ceremony affectionately known as "MOTY," honors pioneers in the country who define South Africa’s cultural environment and continue to push the frontiers.

GQ South Africa and Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège honored the best talent from South Africa, including artists, humanitarians, innovators, designers, comedians, and entrepreneurs.

 "I can fairly say that 2021 Men of the Year demonstrates how diverse we are as a brand and who we showcase and celebrate, as well as how different the people who define our culture are, in the 22 years we've been around as GQ.

“Everyone we honored today is an example of excellence and inspiration. We're genuinely honoured to have been able to achieve this for the third year in a row,” GQ Editor-in-Chief Molife Kumona remarked.

Limpopo songstress Makhadzi was also honoured as the Entertainer of the Year while Sipho "Hotstix" Mabuse received the most prestigious honor, the Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Lifetime Achievement Award.

This is Makhadzi’s third award in November after bagging an AFRIMA award under the Best Artist, duo or group in the African Electro category. She is also a recipient of Feathers Award 2021.
