Veteran Zimbabwean broadcaster, Otis “Tha Flow” Fraser, is set to release his debut house music album early next year, NewsDay has learnt.
Fraser, now based in Botswana, said in an interview that he has been working on the material for more than 4 years now.
“I am still not happy with the way some tracks sound.
“That is the reason why it has taken me such a long time to work on the album,” said the popular former ZBC disc jockey.
Fraser, who is also a sough-after nightclub DJ, was in the country for shows in Gweru and Harare.
“For the New Year show, I will be up against visiting Jamaican ragga star, Capleton at Stars Nightclub in Harare,” said the talented deejay.
Turning back to his album, Fraser said: “I am working on a house music album not because I am following the trend but I feel that we have a bit of house music in us as deejays. In fact, house music has more dance floor appeal.”
He said house music provides any deejay with the platform to express themselves.
“House music is also much closer to Africa.
“R&B and hip-hop are more synonymous with America therefore I could not have chosen any of those genres for my album,” he said.
Fraser said he has a lot of unmixed material which he would use for his album.
“Tha Flow is a perfectionist. I have been telling him that the music sounds good but he keeps saying that he is not yet happy. We however await the release,” said Kimble Rogers, another veteran broadcaster who was in the company of Fraser during the interview.
