Speak­ing to the Week­ender from his base in Jo­han­nes­burg, Max-hoba said his visit to Le­sotho will be part of his sopho­more al­bum tour.

“I will be in Le­sotho for the first time to pro­mote my sec­ond self-pro­duced stu­dio al­bum, Trav­el­ling Man, which con­sists of 13 beau­ti­ful tracks sung in three lan­guages – Xhosa, English and Se­sotho,” Max-hoba said.

“I have al­ways wanted to visit Le­sotho and per­form there since I can speak the lan­guage.

“So I see this as a great op­por­tu­nity to fa­mil­iarise my­self with the coun­try, and peo­ple should ex­pect noth­ing but great African mu­sic.”

In the al­bum, Max­hoba re­flects on the in­flu­ences from his past with col­lab­o­ra­tions with a num­ber of artistes. Var­i­ous mu­si­cal gen­res are em­ployed to put across spir­i­tual mes­sages in Trav­el­ling Man which is an al­bum rich in ex­plo­ration.

The mood is set right from word go with the first track Kwabonakala, a tra­di­tional Xhosa hymn fol­lowed by Grate­ful, which was re­leased as the first sin­gle to the al­bum that dom­i­nated the charts.

“The first sin­gle ti­tled Grate­ful reached the num­ber one spot on such ra­dio sta­tions as Kaya, Ga­gasi and Power FM and also gave me the op­por­tu­nity to have a spe­cial per­for­mance on Metro FM with Paul Mti­rara,” he said.

Other out­stand­ing tracks in­clude the smooth a capella track Find a Way, and Mo­lao in which he fea­tures Kwazulu-natal­born rap­per Zulu Boy and the 90s popular hit Nom­n­ganga.
