Sun-El Musician real name Sanele Sithole is one of South Africa’s best-kept secrets; originally from Mooi River in KwaZulu Natal he is no newcomer to the music and creative industry. Having invested so much of his time gaining experience and perfecting his art has led us to this here in day, with a single that represents him in his unique ability.
‘Akanamali‘ is not just a house track, its not any other song on the playlist it’s a song that captures a story, a song that defines a stage in a young man’s life and most of all a package of Sanele’s musical experiences and influences.
Sun-El Musician has produced songs like Shela for BUCIE and has also remixed Get Over It. He has also worked in production at Demor Music and has produced for the likes of Thiwe, Zakes Bantwini, and Shota in his personal capacity all of which are very talented musicians.
His sound is so profound and very unique, it could only be released now when it has been perfected and mastered now that He has been able to own his unique sound. He will continue to make music not for South Africa but music for the continent and for the world, music that can be appreciated in any other language.
The EP is a breath of fresh air, targeted at a people with a palette for great music and who have found it lacking in the recent times of the industry.

‘My sound is modern Afro house, I was influenced by disco, funk and jazz. I have also enjoyed music that is electronic and atmospheric. In general I would like to make African Music which is World Class Music at the end of the day’
