After taking a hiatus from music for 2 years Cape Town based rapper Sipho The Gift announced his return in 2017, releasing new music in preparation for a upcoming project & after weeks of hyping up the new release Sipho drops his sophomore album “Kintsugi.”
Named for the ancient Japanese practice of repairing broken pottery with precious metals like gold or platinum, sophomore album Kintsugi sees Sipho the Gift evolve both musically and philosophically.
The Kimberley-born rapper/producer move’s away from his traditional, East Coast boom-bap roots towards a more melodic, Auto-Tune-friendly sound. Through the 8 songs produced and written by Sipho, he tells of a journey of self discovery through self love, self aware and eventually self mastery
The result is a multilayered, coming-of-age chronicle from a young & promising musician.
