Shirimani asked if Penny could sing, at which point, as Shirimani recalls, "[h]e didn't say yes. He just sang a song for me. And that's when I heard this unusual voice and those melodies. The three demos that the pair had created greatly impressed Shirimain's colleagues and Shandel Music, the label to which Shirimani was affiliated, and the label let Shirimani produce a whole album for Penny, also titled Shaka Bundu , which they recorded in only a week.
The music on Shaka Bundu fuses the Tsonga disco or Shangaan disco style — which originated from the Tsonga culture in northern South Africa  — with contemporary house music from the United States. The music is provided by Shirimani, who was inspired by Chicago house in particular and blends the genre's deep bass and harsh piano, as was typified by the music of Larry Heard and Marshall Jefferson , with South African melodies.
