AWARD-winning artist and MTN Eswatini Ambassador Illa Penboy is a step ahead of his peers.
This proved to be true yesterday when Illa’s Panboy’s latest single ‘Connie and Shona’ reached 5 000 views on YouTube in four days.
The song was released on Friday and before this publication went to print, the song had reached 5 000 views on the channel and that is a first in the local music scene.
“Firstly, my appreciation goes to everyone who took time to view and listen to the song. Reaching 5 000 views feels great. Above all, I am encouraged to keep promoting the link for more views and downloads via the Mr Successful Events music app,” said the excited singer.
He stated that the song was inspired by South African power couple Connie and Shona Ferguson, saying he wanted to celebrate them.
“If you know Connie and Shona, you know very well that they have achieved a lot together as a couple. They have been married for a long time, but they still stand strong. They are more than just an inspiration. So why not put that in a song so we can celebrate them? I took that initiative,” he said.
On the release date Friday, the song was received with mixed reactions by music lovers on social media.
Illa stated that he would not say anything to his haters, but rather he had votes of thanks to his supporters as 2020 to him way all about positivity and reaching more milestones.
“My focus is on building this concept so I can deliver to the masses as I did in the last show I hosted. My focus is on the show I will soon be hosting. For an artist, nothing feels greater than receiving support from your own people. I am motivated to do more music and see how I can break more grounds with the music I create, ” he said.
“My plan this year is to host the best events, deliver on what I promised and enjoy while doing it,” he said. It is also worth noting that Illa Penboy has become the most sought after artist in the country as he recently packed The Xchange chill spot last month.
