MBABANE – The Swazi king of RnB has landed a recording opportunity with world renowned Nigerian hip hop superstar Ice Prince.

 Ice Prince is set to perform at this year’s MTN BUSHFIRE Festival. The Nigerian superstar is an award winning rapper signed under Chocolate City Music record label and has gained phenomenal success in the music industry.

“We are excited to share that we have finalised the recording of a new single with Ice Prince. The song has been recorded and undergone intense sample testing, and we are more than confident that it will have an impact on both our brands,  as we are certain that this collaboration will cause waves throughout the African continent.” Tiyas said.

Tiyas, further went on to confirm that the final mixing of the much anticipated song is currently being mastered in the United States of America and will be released at the end of this month. This has been a stepping stone for the RnB crooner as this collaboration will give the artist an opportunity of expanding his brand into one that is at par with international standards.

The busy RnB crooner stated that his fans and followers will be thrilled to know that his team is currently in discussions with regards to another major collaboration with a South African rapper whose identity is still classified at the present moment. However, he hinted that the South African rapper is one that is successfully making it in the music industry.

Tiyas explained that this development in his career is a full-circle moment because back in 2010 he embarked on a journey to Johannesburg with his brother Andile,  where they were based for two months following the success of his launch for the ‘Lies and Truth’ albums. He further goes on to say that they had just discovered Ice Prince’s hit song ‘Oleku’.

 “We had the song on repeat each time we had a door slammed in our face after knocking door to door looking for record deal opportunities, features and publishing deals,” he added. During the interview, he reminisced about how his brother would say that one day he would collaborate with Ice Prince and today that statement has come true. Tiyas says that the feature followed an interview on South African radio, where he was asked who in Africa  and outside of South Africa would he like to collaborate with and that’s when he said Ice Prince, and the interviewer asked to listen to more of his music so he could see if what Tiyas wished for was indeed possible.
Despite his star being on the rise and rubbing shoulders with internationally recognised stars, Tiyas has given a local producer a platform to prove his productivity skills. Gabriel John Sisk, a local producer helped put together a song that Tiyas has featured in, titled ‘Numb’ and it was sent to Ice Prince who sent it back two days later for mastering and final stages of production purposes. 
This was a sample of the song Tiyas was asked by Ice Prince’s management to send so they get to have an idea of how the feature was going to be.
“I am excited about this feature because I am desperate to hear my music being played in a place where I will be measured by my talent and my work, and not by who I offended at the Arts and Culture Council.
“The platform is also somewhere where even my Swazi countrymen will be proud to call me one of their own because I’m being given a fair shot to flex my abilities without fear of prejudice.
“I also believe so profoundly in the talent we have here at home, I am confident that we will eventually make it to the world stage standard, it’s going to be a huge year for Swazi talent as a whole, and I’m overjoyed to be a part of this movement,” Maziya said.
