Blush to release third solo project

Bloodshow Chikosi who is part of the revived urban grooves pioneer group -2BG - is set to release his third solo album titled Comforter.

The eight-track album is expected to hit record bars in April. The upcoming project follows up on his previous solo albums, Story Of My Heart (2006) and I Was Born To Make You Blush released last year.

The Pretoria based urban groover joined forces with a Malawian producer based in Johannesburg, only identified as Chris.

Apart from Blush's well known urban grooves trademark, Comforter features jazz and house songs to give his latest offering a mature and wider appeal.

The album cuts across various love issues such as promiscuity and intergenerational relationships. It also pays tribute to his long-time friend and producer Sipho Mkhuleli aka TBA The Playboy who passed away late last year with his wife Terry in Pretoria.

Blush's manager Godie "Wenera" Makota revealed the developments.

"He (Blush) is releasing an eight-track solo album called Comforter in April.

"We plan to release a DVD soon after the album launch," said Makota adding that the video shoot of the opening track Anemaths commenced last Sunday.

Chiedza, Cloud Nine, Sipho, Set The Roof On Fire, Dzikira-Dzikira, My Lady and Set The Roof On Fire – remix featuring Shaynedengz makes up the rest of the album.

Meanwhile, Makota reassured their fans that the highly anticipated 2BG comeback album is on its way though it has been slowed by the distance factor.

"2BG's reunion album is still on. We are still working on it. In fact we have already recorded two tracks with Diana Samkange and Kelvin Ashley. We are hoping to finish off before August considering that we have the distance problem," he said.

Blush is part of the groundbreaking urban grooves group 2BG, which he formed in 2001 together with Kevin Ashley and Rutendo Muchirahondo who was later replaced by Diana Samkange.

Together with 2BG, Blush recorded Searching For Love and Ndoda Kuva Newe before going solo.
