Toya Delazy Unveils New Music Video for “Forbidden Fruit”
Acclaimed South African Pop Star Toya Delazy shared the glowing new music video for her latest single ‘Forbidden Fruit’. Forbidden Fruit was shot in Cape Town and was directed by Kyle Lewis from Dirty Soul Productions. Forbidden Fruit, the lead track from Toya’s new album ‘Ascension’ has moved quickly up the SA Top 100 chart thanks to nationwide crossover radio play listing. Forbidden Fruit grew from a production collaboration with industry stalwarts Craig Massiv & Troydon Murisan – known now as Loskop . Toya describes the ideas behind the track: “You love who you love. This life has no rules, there is no instruction manual, we don’t live to find ourselves, we live to create ourselves…” After walking away with three South African Music Awards in 2013 for her gold selling debut album Due Drop and a 2013 BET Nomination for Best International Act (Africa), Toya Delazy announced the release of her brand new album ‘Ascension’. Ascension is characterised by a crystal clear artistic vision and was formed through Toya’s unique writing process & significant production collaborations, both local & international. Craig Massiv & Troydon Murisan, Shane Cooper, Ross Jack & Toya herself formed the heart of the production team, with US based Fresco Kane & Jazziel Sommers adding an international flavour to the collab credits. The key artistic collaboration comes from Cassper Nyovest appearing guest feature on the anthemic ‘My City’, earmarked to be the album’s 2nd single. Check out the video, HERE!
