May 5, 2021

The multi-talented singer, songwritter and actor, Titus Makin, now known as Butterfly Ali, has announced his debut ep titled “Preacher’s Kid”. The upcoming project is set for the release date of June 11 and features five funk-R&B infused records where Butterfly Ali introduces himself to the world as an artist to be reckoned with. Thematically, the music reflects Butterfly Ali’s church background.

The new single ‘Testimony’ opens up the new collection and makes a bold statement about his influences. Inspired heavily by the gospel sound and his religious background, he wears his flamboyant persona on his sleeve throughout this new cut, inviting us into his world of bold and exciting sonic flavours.

Talking about the new single, Butterfly Ali comments, “Testimony is quite literally a song about my life‘s testimony. I wanted to write a song telling the devil that no matter how much he’s trying to quiet me and my call to share the love of God with people, I’m going to keep going. I wanted to write the song from the perspective of quieting the naysayers as well, in everyday life. People who tell you that you’re unworthy or you’re incapable of something you desire to achieve. Proving them wrong by doing just that.”
