Josiah De Disciple tells Apple Music how He Named His New Album ‘Satori’

We actually had to sit down and rethink the name, because I was actually trying to go back to naming my albums Spirit of Makoela, and the team was like, “No, now that you’ve managed to come up with this beautiful body of work, it has new elements, it’s refreshed—so let’s also refresh your name… what would you like people to know about you?”

I feel like the people know that I have this talent of making music, but I feel like it’s the minority, so I’m looking for like the whole of South Africa to actually know Josiah is actually the king of his thing—that’s the whole aim behind it.

Josiah De Disciple tells Apple Music How His New Album Helped Him Return to his Roots

During my time of making music, I’ve also been in a place where I’ve been lost in the sound, making something because it’s trendy, etc. I had to sit down and remind myself. People also have been reminding me like, “Bro, what about that Josiah? We want that Josiah!” So when you have a group of people shouting, reminding you, you’re bound to go back to your roots and that’s exactly what I needed to do. I needed to find myself back again and come back with a refreshed mind, and I believe I did that on this album.

Josiah De Disciple tells Apple Music How the Track “Kuzoba Ncono” Resonates with Him

I kind of relate to that song because I was also at a point where I was going through a turmoil and I used to turn to alcohol for answers. It set me back, let me put it like that, and it was also evident in the music because I stopped being consistent with the music, you know? I feel like me as an artist I was just all over the place, but I had time to sit down and find myself.

I stopped drinking, and had to make sure I take care of this talent, because it’s brought me this far, and also there’s people that also depend on me and I can’t let them down, because we’ve also come this far—they’ve supported me to this far. I’m at a better place right now and everything is looking good; the only thing we do is pray for more blessings.
