Many will agree that L-Tido had a phenomenal 2010. With just one self released, marketed and distributed mixtape (City Of Gold) L-Tido was able to independently achieve what most could not do with full record company backing.
The ‘City of Gold’ mixtape sold over 3,800 units, his videos have over 8,000 views on YouTube, his songs are heavily rotated on urban music station and his videos are also heavily rotated on music TV channels.
Last night, L-Tido was crowned Channel O’s ‘Most Gifted Newcomer’ for his video featuring Tee-Pee – ‘Calling’.
With the scheduled release of his debut album 2011 is looking to be an even bigger year for L-Tido. The first single off his forthcoming debut album is titled ‘We Rolling’ and it features Teargas’ KO and has many commentators in the South African circles already calling it Hip Hop’s song of the year.
