The Long-awaited Sophomore Album from undoubtedly one of Sierra Leone’s finest Singer/Songwriters is finally here.
Anis Halloway who first premiered in the African Music Scene as the only contestant from Freetown on the second edition of MTN Project Fame West Africa, has rapidly evolved into a Creative Force; actor, voiceover artiste, scriptwriter and film-maker to name a few layers.
We caught up with Anis on the set of “Hustle” a brand new “Dramedy”(comedy-drama) Sitcom by MNET for which he is Technical Director and Sound Designer, and the experience was quite enlightening.
When asked why the 7 year gap between his debut album “Small Beginnings”, and “Next Step”, he explained how he has spent the past couple years nourishing the various layers of his brand and added that his evolutionary journey from just an artiste to an all round Media Practitioner has been his greatest fulfillment.
“No matter how much I do in media /TV, music has and will always be my Life-Blood; its a Passion and I’m blessed to be able to express this creativity once again in this Record.”
“Next Step” embodies that growth characteristic of 7 years Life experience, hence I’m very proud of it.” he said.
Here’s an Exclusive Teaser from the album, a song entitled “Dance Too Sweet” featuring two of Sierra Leone’s finest Artistes Silvastone and Dallas Bantan. You can purchase the “Next Step” album on iTunes or Amazon
