South African based Congolese singer, Andréas has dropped his second single titled unhinged. The song is off his upcoming EP, which is now available for pre-order on digital platforms such as Itune, Google Play and 7Digital.Andréas was born in the capital city of the Democratic Republic of the Congo; Kinshasa, on October 19th, 1988. In 2005 at the age of 16, he and his family fled their country of origin to escape civil war and relocated to Accra, Ghana where the singer will begin learning English as a second language; which will eventually become his primary speaking language later on in life.
At the age of 17, Andréas ventured into joining a hip hop group with his neighborhood friends at the time, where he was the only singer of the group. Although the group was short-lived, it did not stop a local recording music producer from noticing the singer.
After catching the news that the group had split, he [the music producer] touched based with Andréas and took him under his wing for the next two years mentoring him with the art of songwriting, recording, and performing.
By 2009 at the age of 20 Andréas moved to the United States to pursue a BA in Communications: Public Relations in Kansas City, Missouri. And that’s where he fell in love with the art of singing live by often performing at The Kansas City Juke House’s ‘Open Mic Night’ on Mondays.
2013 was the year the singer decided to pick up an instrument, and he chose the acoustic guitar. From then on, Andréas has written at least a song a day.
In 2014 he decided to test the [music scene] waters again by heading back into the recording studio to potentially establish a presence online as a singer. And that is how ‘The Blame Game’ by Andréas Muntu came to fruition in 2015.
After experiencing first-hand, how today’s music industry works [digitally], to the point where any genuine indie artist had a fair shot at making it a career, Andréas decided to hire himself as his first client to PR for.
