Hip-hop artists Zakwe and Duncan will set the record straight about the conflict between them through a joint album titled Zakwe and Duncan.

This comes after the duo, who were once close friends but later fell out, ironed out their differences. They said the album – due to be released on Friday, 4 December – would end all the rumours.

The rappers from KwaMashu, north of Durban said working together made them realise how much they missed and needed each other. Zakwe, whose real name is Ntokozo Zakwe, told Daily Sun the 15-track album has a nine-minute intro explaining what had happened.

“It’s time for our fans to hear it from us. It was nice working with Duncan again and it took less than two months to record,” he said.

“We recorded 20 songs, but will release 15 for now. They’re dedicated to setting the record straight on what ended our friendship.”

The two released a number of hit songs together before they turned enemies in 2015.

Duncan, whose real name is Siphamandla Mbambo, said it was humbling to work with his mentor Zakwe again.

“It was easy to record with him and I learned many things about him. Now I know he doesn’t like to talk when something is hurting him,” he said.

“From now on, I will keep an eye on him to see if I’m doing something that will hurt him because I don’t want to lose him again.

“It was easy to iron out our differences after I left Isiphethu Records. I believe that it was what caused the communication breakdown between us.”

They recently released a single called Ama-Levels, which is a sample of what to expect from the album. The album will be available on digital platforms on Friday and on CD next week.
