Now under Ghetto Ruff music, Ntando is ready to give his fans what they've been waiting for.

His next album, titled Mayibuye is set to launch on the 24th of August and according to Ntando, Mayibuye will be one of the best albums he's released so far.

Speaking to ZAlebs, Ntando expressed that with this particular album he wants to convey a message of hope and unity for all South Africans.

"The main point I would like to get across with this album is a point of unity. As a country, I believe that we really need to be united now more than ever because we can clearly see that things are not really going the right way. So I want to play my part in trying to reconcile us as South Africans."

However, with releasing a great album comes great challenges. Ntando admitted that he faced a lot of writers block when creating this album, which was a difficult hurdle to overcome.

"It wasn't simple, this album took me the longest to produce because I've been writing songs, going back, erasing those songs than trying to remake those songs again. So out of all the six albums I have done this one was by far the hardest that I have ever had to do because there's also more competition now so you don't just write and release music out there, you really need to be sure about what you're doing. It took me a while but I'm happy with the end product."

Ntando has been touring the country with the likes of Vusi Nova and Nathi. We asked the singer if he had featured Vusi or Nathi on his new project or if he plans on featuring the two artists in the near future.

"No, I don't have a song with Vusi Nova or Nathi on this particular album but I am planning on releasing one with Vusi Nova. We do have a song but it came late, the album had already been done but for my next projects I'll include the song I did with him."

One thing we've come to love about Ntando, apart from his music is his Xhosa attire that he wears when he's about to perform. 

Ntando informed us that he actually designs his own Xhosa attire which is then sewn by his mom or his mom's friend.

Ntando is also a proud father of a little boy whom he feels has taught him a lot about himself and about being a father.

"Being a father has taught me that when you have a little one to take care of it's not about you anymore. You don't necessarily stop living but there are more important things you need to focus on than your own needs. There's more pressure and joy at the same time because you come to the realization that you have someone who is totally dependant on you. So fatherhood has really taught me patience and perseverance and I'm enjoying every moment of it."
