John had started his record label last year to produce the soundtrack for his new film God Is Good, which he was also executive producing.
The soundtrack to the film will feature African artists including rapper YoungstaCPT, and John told Deadline: ‘Josephine [Rose], Yara [Shaikh], Stefan [Wade] and I also all share a passion for music and this film enables us to work with local talent in South Africa to find those voices and help put them on the international stage by also bringing on internationally renowned Afro beats artists.
‘The team will work with artists across the continent of Africa to create a soundtrack that represents and gives voice to the incredible range of music talent and sound that the continent produces.’
