Two months back, Eagle celebrated the fifth anniversary of his South African Music Awards (Sama) winning debut album “Yellow”.

The album, which came a year after he first came into the spotlight on the reality TV show, “Vuzu Hustle”, helped propel him into one of the most promising young acts in the country.

He’d go on to collaborate with J Cole’s Dreamville protégé, Bas, and tour Europe with the Dreamville clique.

J Cole, who’s recently dabbled in a basketball career, saw him play point guard for Scarborough Shooting Stars in Canada.

“Shattered my previous Career high @BAA blessed to be able to play with @scarboroughshootingstars,” he shared a few months ago after scoring a three pointer.
