L-Tido’s All Or Nothing Launch
Why on earth would you launch your album in Fourways? Well L-Tido and his team made that mistake. On Thursday night, I braved the cold and went to Tanz Cafe in Fourways to attend L’Tido’s album launch and it was a sad sight.
As usual when we got there with my side kicks we were not on the guest list, even though we had accepted the invite. We negotiated our way in and to my disappointment the club was empty.
When we got there with our VIP tags, I expected free liquor as Hansa was the sponsor, kuphi? We had to buy our own liquor. The m’rappers started coming in, in their over sized clothes, it looked like mini New York.
The moment we all had been waiting for arrived when the main man L-Tido hit the stage. He performed songs from his album and the Glitz Gays my bad, meant Gang joined him on stage. The performance was great, L-Tido is really good in this hip hop thing.
What caught my ear in his performance was when he took jabs at Relo.Well it’s mean but kinda funny. In one of his lines he goes “Till the fat Lady sings RELO”.
From what I heard that evening, All Or Nothing is gonna be a hit album. Look out for a track featuring Nigerian superstar Banky W called “It aint my fault.”
We know AKA and L-Tido don’t like each other that much, and I have been fortunate enough to attend both their launches and listening session so in my honest opinion, I think L-Tido has the best album but you know what they say about opinions, they are like a**holes, everyone has one.
I saw a couple of hip hop heads who came up to support L-Tido. Hip Hop DJs Milkshake, Vigilante, and Dimplez (MVD), C-Live, Ishmael from Jozi, as well as TeePee who also performed. The beautiful Bridget Khathi nee Masinga was also there to support hubby, Thabiso.
Go out and support local hip hop.
Some of L-Tido’s accolades include: Channel O Music Video Awards’ ‘Most Gifted Newcomer’ for 2010, his hit single We Rollin’ reached number 1 on the Channel O Weekly Charts, MTV Base African Chart, ETV’s Club 808 Chart and French music channel Trace TV’s Africa Top 10 Chart. He sold over 4,000 units of his self-released, self-marketed and hand-to-hand distributed mix-tape titled City of Gold.
