BULAWAYO’s house music songstress Nomalanga “Nomah T” Tshuma (pictured) made her comeback last month with her new track Ngenzeni, which she dedicated to women, NewsDay Life & Style has learnt.
“August is a women’s month and society is reminded of the importance of women and encouraged to stop gender-based violence and any other form of abuse in our communities and nation at large,” Nomah T said.
She said in her track, she condemned the barbaric behaviour by abusers.
“I used the popular Amapiano sound in a rather bitter sweet fashion — the banging beat and melodies are accompanied by well-executed vocals with a heartbreaking plea to abusers asking “what did I do wrong?”, hence the title Ngenzeni,” she said.
“It took a lot of guts and bravery to sing about this sensitive issue for me, who is a survivor of GBV. I got hurt realising that women are resorting to alcohol, drugs and extra marital affairs to numb the pain endured at the hands of their spouses. I used the Amapiano sound because it’s currently the most popular and trending genre and I hope that will help my message to reach far and wide.”
Meanwhile, she said she was working on a yet to be named project, which she hopes to rope in South African producers to add variety to her sound so that she could give her followers the best.
