Muyiwa & Riversongz are preparing for Christmas in May working on their debut Christmas album which currently has no title, “I’ll probably call it something boring and not creative like ‘Riversongz Christmas’” shares Muyiwa.
Stylistically, Muyiwa & Riversongz fans can expect elements of Pop/Soul/Gospel and of course African flavoured tracks, “it’s a MUST” Muyiwa exclaims.
As it stands there are no collaborations confirmed however Muyiwa did let slip that, “in the original plan we were going to have Lionel Richie and Stevie Wonder on the project.”
“The conversation had started last year,” Muyiwa continues. “I have a very close relationship with Keith Harris who manages Stevie and is good friends with Lionel. Keith used to be my manager but we are still very much in touch he is something of a mentor to me.”
Will the new album feature Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie or even both? Who knows, as Muyiwa is always breaking down barriers, blazing trails and doing the unexpected.
“There will be 5 new songs Kwesi Jones and I are cooking at the moment,” explains Muyiwa who wanted to leave supporters with something to look forward to by not giving away the names of the popular Christmas songs that will feature on the album that will be given what Muyiwa describes as “a Riversongz interpolation!”
