Taking to Twitter earlier this week ahead of his debut album, which is set to be released in February, Sir Trill revealed his plans for his royalty money from songs recorded with Mpura.

“Every song on my project with @MPURAPUDI all royalties go to his team and family,” the singer posted.

The “John Wick“ hitmaker also shared that he planned to drop his album last year, however, he claims that people were trying to stop him.

“I should have dropped a project for y’all last year. Think about it. It didn’t make sense that I didn’t drop. N****s were trying to stop me. You guys come 1st to me. Sir trill is nothing without y’all.“

In November, trailblazing amapiano DJ DBN Gogo announced that she’d be shooting scenes for the music video of her massive hit single “Khuza Gogo”.

“Shooting scenes for the Khuza Gogo video. Edenvale Skateworld. Pull up. All black tribute to Mpura 🕊,” she said.
