You’re probably thinking, don’t you mean you painted the town Red…. Nope I mean what I said, we painted the town Gold, Mathew Gold to be exact.
If you’re from South Africa you must know who I am talking about. An amazing young talented guy set to take the SA music industry by storm. I am proud to say I know this guy from school days. I was 2 years ahead of him at Pinelands High School but good friends of mine and my cousin was in his year and are still good friends with him today.
He released his first single No Ordinary Guy featuring Hip Hop sensation AKA and it has become a hit currently number 3 on the 5fm top 40 and getting him to number 1 will be absolute dream come true.
To get him to that number 1 spot Tweet @5fm #noordinayguy @mathewgoldmusic #top40 Do it now!
His had an amazing career thus far, “Taking it Easy” a colab he did with GoodLuck catapulted his career and GoodLuck putting them on the fast track to be forces to be reckoned with in the music industry. Their unique sound, groovy beats and Mathew’s soulful vocals were a winning combination. So much so that Goodluck signed him and produced his album called the Rush soon to be released.
He’s currently doing an unplugged promo tour at a few cozy intimate venues around Cape Town for the month of June. I went with a few friends to Orphanage to watch him perform. I am not being biased because I know him but he was so good, so good that I want to watch him again. His soulful vibe is magnetic, singing some of his new songs, redoing some of GoodLuck’s tracks and some covers we can all sing along too. What a fun night out.
If you’re looking for something to do to warm up these cold winter nights, checking out Mathew Gold this month is highly recommended and believe me, you won’t be disappointed.
