He spearheaded his son's music career helping him court big names in the African music industry like Davido who featured on the Nigerian singer's track, 'No Bad Vibes'.

In a social media post, King 98, real name Ngonidzashe Dondo, said the extended play will be released in July.

"Long Live, July 2021 I'm dropping my E.P titled Long Live, in honour of my dad who passed away this year. Your legacy lives on and I know I will make you proud. Rest In Peace Super Dad," he wrote.

King 98's 2019 album launch at the Wingate Golf Club in Harare attracted international music stars, Nasty C, Davido, Rowlene and Nadia Nakai.
