Ricky Tyler chats what he stands for as an artist and his debut album, Small World
We had an opportunity to chop it up with one of the most promising artists of 2020. Singer, songwriter, Ricky Tyler is by no means new to the Zkhiphani platform, having kept the legacy of R&B alive among the younger and emerging artists. He returns on our radar with the release of his much anticipated debut album, Small World.
Small World is his 14-track debut album and it’s an artwork of some smooth yet intense authentic and emotive songs. He is expressing life experiences from discovering oneself, mental health, relationships and family life which we can all relate to. He collaborated with some of Africa’s finest talent such as KLY, Alpha P, M.I Abaga & Harvey.
This former Fashion model and Actor now signed to Def Jam Africa was born and bred in Johannesburg’s East Rand. He chats to us about what he stands for as an artist, how the Def Jam Africa deal came about as well as his masterful album, Small World.
