1.  Who is Truey Donatello ?   
 Truey Donatello, a musician born in Kwamashu and raised in Midrand, has returned and created another buzz within the local music industry.
2. What Is the latest from Truey Donatello?
In 2020, he first dropped his “Zaka fast freestyle” single with the accompanying music video reaching 6000 Twitter views and 11 000 youtube views. This amazing response has inspired his upcoming ‘Drillandinho’ mixtape release for 2020.
His second single, “Money Pain”, was also well received with the music video reaching 4000 twitter views and 7000 youtube views. A single teasing his EP, ‘Fukwe Road’, projected for a 2021 release.
3. Tell us the inspiration behind the latest music video?
 Money Pain was inspired by the ideas of shaping your dreams and achieving your goals. These were the major themes but authenticity was the biggest inspiration and lead to a more simplistic approach visually and a stronger focus on his musical ability.
4. What is next from Truey and what are the plans for the rest of 2020?
 The songwriter/musician has combined his art and his Kwa Mashu/Midrand background to deliver what he now coins the “Mzansi Drill” sound. A sound inspired by the popular UK drill sound that came back full circle to the US shores via the late Pop Smoke. This Mixtape is his focus and promises to be another musical experience.
