By Staff Reporter- One of the biggest music record labels in the country, Sunshine family Studio is back with a bang following its closure a few years ago.
In an interview with this publication, the record label lead producer Shelton “Shelthang” Masiwa said music is his calling hence the return to fulfill it.
“We have been out of the music scene because we had spread our wings and were also doing advertising work for several agencies.
The impact of the covid-19 on the music industry has also had a negative bearing on our work but we are happy to say that we are back and rearing to go.”
Shelthang said the break was also a time for reflection for the Sunshine Family Studio team.
“During our break, we also managed to produce a few hits with different artists like the late SoulJah Luv and Freeman, among other artistes.
“We are back in the game fulltime and we want to tell all those that follow us that we have more projects lined up which we will be producing from some of your favourite artists.
Sunshine Family Studio produced Killer T’s latest offering “Inzwawo Kuchema Mambo”
“We are still working on the upcoming album for Freeman set to be released next month.”
