While declaring 2021 your year after the disaster that was 2020 for so many may be a trap, singer Donald feels that nothing, not even a harsh lockout, will bring him down this year.
The star, who first captured Mzansi's attention with his characteristic red mic several years ago, wants to make an impression this year and shared his plans on Twitter.
"This year, not even lockdown level 5 will be able to bring me down." This year, Is my year of prosperity. Please keep an eye on me,” he wrote.
After a hard lockdown was imposed in March last year to combat the spread of the coronavirus, all venues and concerts were shut down for several months. Donald may want to be careful what he wishes for.
He later admitted that the pandemic may result in many people in the sector losing their jobs by 2021, but he urged them to "keep producing."
"Greetings, musician. I understand you don't know if you'll have a job this year because of Covid, and I apologize, but I urge you to keep creating. Everything will come together in the end. It'll be OK if you put everything into the song and don't care about business."
Many artists have had to make ends meet as a result of the pandemic and lockdown, but Donald told GQ that it has had no detrimental impact on him so far.
He explained, "Instead, it has encouraged me to be even more creative, do new things, and explore new concepts that I would not have entertained otherwise."
During his stay in captivity, he composed a heartfelt rendition of the national anthem and started a talent show to attract new musicians.
I made the decision to offer new up-and-coming talent a chance and a platform to show what they're capable of." It was a method for me to acknowledge them on my timeline, as I already have a sizable following. He told the SABC, "I felt it would do a lot for a new artist that is anxious for that attention."
