18 year old Donel who rose to stardom on The Voice UK in 2018 has dropped his first single for 2020 titled ‘Wish you well.’
The uplifting and feel good single was released under Mr Eazi’s Epawa Africa talent incubator programme.
The young creative, who was raised in Zimbabwe, has been enjoying a heady ascent into stardom as a pop star with the full package; Donel sings, writes, dances, performs and presents.
Sonically, his music fuses Afrobeat with contemporary pop and R’n’B, delivered with an infectious energy with ‘Wish You Well’ acting as another self-penned example.
Speaking on the new single and his relationship with Mr Eazi and Empawa Africa, Donel said;
“Working with Eazi is great – he was the first artist to reach out and show me support, and now he’s given me a great opportunity to showcase my music with his company. When we link up it’s always a great vibe, I feel like his little brother! He’s always giving me feedback on how to improve my music and as a mentor I always take his advice on board. I’m very grateful to have him in my corner.”
