Freeky's Latest Singles

A Fusion of "Freeky" Flavors Hits the U.S.A.
Freeky’s new singles, “Icecream Man,” and “Take My Breath Away,” showcase his reggae-based blend of soul, pop, hip-hop, and dancehall.
A sweeping triumph and bound to cross over into the mainstream airwaves.
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, APRIL 20th, 2018 - The U.S.A. is about to get a taste of two tantalizing tracks from rising South African reggae and pop artist Olihile Afrika better known as “Freeky.” His two latest singles are “You Take My Breath Away” and “Icecream Man.” The songs showcase Olihile’s inherent ability to blend soul, hip-hop, and dancehall into a reggae-based style with crossover appeal. One could call these tunes a fusion of “Freeky” flavors.
You Take My Breath Away” and “Icecream Man” are the first two songs to release fromFreeky’s upcoming sophomore album release. The new project is a follow-up to his successful 2015 full-length Love Stories offering. Freeky explains the two self-penned compositions, “As always, I leave room for the listener to interpret my compositions. I want to tap into the listener's circumstance at the time.
Freeky’s latest offerings stem from a musical development that began in early childhood and the many years he’s spent working within a multitude of genres. In 2006, as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Freeky joined the legendary band Ntjapedi. Along the way, Freeky has performed with such A-List African acts as Salif Keita and Bongo Riot as well as recorded with the likes ofSizzla and Leftside
The uplifting, pop and reggae-infused ballad, “You Take My Breath Away,” has been well received by both radio and critics in South Africa - as well as in the U.K.- where it's called, “... no ordinary reggae song,” by Niche Records. The second offering, “Icecream Man,” with its upbeat, hip-hop and funky feel gives insight into how Freeky’s songwriting skill set can instantly morph into a new musical mode.
Since 2007 Freeky has spent almost a decade honing his solo career and pushing the creative envelope of his reggae style. Now in 2018, along with the help of his indie label, Dreaded Sounds a whole new side of the world is about to taste the “Freeky,” funky flavors of “Icecream Man” and “You Take My Breath Away.”
