Exclusive pics: SA artist records new single with Wyclef Jean in New York

Cape Town - Local artist Capso recently recorded a single with Grammy Award-winning American hip hop star Wyclef Jean in New York City.

Capso's song Firestars, featuring Wyclef Jean will be released exclusively on Channel24 later this week.

Capso describes his style as raprobeat, a combination of rhythm-poetry and afrobeat. His debut album, Things Are As They Are (2005) contained 19 tracks, including his catchy love song to the continent, Afrika, which earned him a musical travel sabbatical from 2005 to 2009.

Back then he called himself Capsolys, simply because he liked the sound of it.

On Monday we revealed footage from behind the scenes of the recording:

Here are some photos from the recording:
