Heavy K is on a winning streak‚ having his produced multiple hits‚bought his dad a house and a car and is preparing to marry the mother of his children‚ Ntombi Nguse‚ this month.
Speaking to Drum‚ the producer and his wifey-to-be opened up about how they met and how the producer popped the question. Heavy K said he set up everything in their home studio when Ntombi wasn’t expecting it.
“I played her a song and I got on my knees and asked her to marry me. She never saw it coming‚” he said.
The couple said that they met at a club in Grahamstown in 2014 and although he was smitten from the word go‚ Ntombi didn’t make it simple on him. However‚ Ntombi “wasn’t keen on dating a celeb and blew him off.”
“I come from a stable family and my parents influenced the way I view women. They really loved each other and the girl I saw had something that reminded me of home.”
The couple plans on having a civil ceremony this month and a wedding with every one of the trimmings in October.
In the meantime‚ Heavy K is determined to deliver more hits and recently released Sphum’ elokshini featuring Durban vocalist Mondli Ngcobo.
Heavy K told TshisaLIVE he doesn’t succumb to the weight of “releasing hits‚” but rather gives each song the necessary attention it needs.
“When I go to the studio‚ I give it my all. I know I am special because over the years‚ my brand has become associated with hits. When I make songs‚ people already expect a hit song with a message. It means a lot to me that I don’t have to create ‘bubblegum’ or music that is too commercial to be celebrated. I’m very humbled by the the love that my songs have received.”
His new album‚ titled Respect the Drumboss 2018‚ is set to be released later this year.
