DURBAN – At 8, he started playing drums on a bar stool with two spoons. When he was 12, his father bought him his first guitar, and when he was 16, his mother bought him a midi controller to produce music.
Fast forward to 2021, and Kyle Desai, 23, a resident of Isipingo, is now the star of his own music video, the one that captured the hearts of many in Durban. The single, titled Durban, was released two months ago.
The clip captures Durban in its best light and, two days after its release, reached 90,000 views.
âThe track is broadcast on local Durban radio stations, and I was interviewed there live as well. Radio heavyweights such as East Coast Radio with Gordon Graham, LotusFM with Jailoshini Naidoo and DYR (Durban Youth Radio) with MKay.
âThe song’s audio was released to all digital and social media platforms on April 16. My inspiration was drawn from the memories of my childhood in Durban. It’s a song story that will transport you on a journey that recalls my childhood experiences, and is also a representation of the city’s diverse culture and its vibrant people, âsaid Desai, known professionally as of “KD”.
The singer, rapper, producer and songwriter said he was convinced he entered the world as a newborn baby crying in falsetto. He described his single as a hymn to unity, love and pride in the city.
âI’ve always dreamed of shooting the perfect music video, which will not only showcase me, but also Durban and its beauty. A video that will remind us of the best times, when families gathered to admire the city, a time of unity and love not only for each other, but a shared love for Durban.
He added that he hopes his video will continue to educate, inspire and motivate.
