Joining us in studio today is an Ancestral Jazz recording artist, Lusindiso Mbangwa also known as LusiBlaq.
The 23 year old artist, who's music is predominantly in isiXhosa, joins us to chat about his new music video VUMA, his first video which will also be played for the very first time on any TV/Channel.
The song is a beautiful motivational song that's inspired by his grandmother, who LusiBlaq was raised by. He says she was an amazingly strong woman who always made sure that there was food on the table and that they are well taken care of. Both LusiBlaq's parents passed away when he was very young. His grandmother was all he had and he decided to write a song to thank her for everything she has done, to give her hope and to remind her that it is his turn now to take care of her. In the song he is telling his granny that everything is going to be okay.
LusiBlaq's sound portrays and utters mainly issues that are faced in Townships and social ills. He's recently released his first ever EP titled Lithakazi, a project that is named after his sibling whom he lost contact with in 2016. He hopes that if he can’t reach her that his music will.
