Hip hop and reggae first lady Nazizi has broken her silence over her unreleased album with Jamaican Ginjah. Nazizi had earlier announced that the album was to be released last month but it did not happen.

"Ginjah is still touring in the US and the album is still being mastered by an Italian record label that signed the album for distribution. We will have launches both in Kenya and Jamaica before heading for a European tour this year," Nazizi said.

She revealed that she might be travelling to Jamaica to shoot videos for some of the songs. The two had earlier released, Sister Brother, one of the songs featured in the album.

Meanwhile, Nazizi is set to reunite on stage with her Necessary Noise partner Wyre. The singer, who spent her December holidays doing a Mombasa tour with the Arusha-based Band Warriors From the East, has been busy in the studio recording the comeback songs with Wyre.

"We mixed hip hop and reggae in this new album. Our fans are yet to get the best of us," said the Mombasa-based Nazizi. The mother of one revealed that the East African Bashment crew comprising Wyre, Bebe Cool and her will be performing in Uganda as part of their comeback project.
