Limpopo queen Makhadzi never ceases to amaze us. The musician is already gearing up for the release of her debut album Kokoba (Crawl), which will be dropping soon. Makhadzi has cemented her place in the hearts of many South Africans, mainly with her music and stellar performances, since she shot fame.
ZAlebs recently caught up with the musician as she share deets on her upcoming album and her relationship with Master KG. Makhazi says her album was inspired by the appreciation she has been receiving from her fans.
They really love my music and my dance moves so that is why I decided to do a dance song which is called Kokoba on the album, and the whole album is inspired by the love I have been receiving,” she says
The singer says on the album she worked with Zimbabwean award-winning artist Jay Prayzah, Mzansi’s superstars Moonchild Sanelly, Mampintsha, and Sho Madjozi.
“I was try to show people that I can do any music, I did a song with Moonchild and Team Mosha, for Moonchild and Mampintsha I wanted to show people that we are all Africans and we must unite especially when It comes to our diverse languages, and that we must be one,” she adds.
Makhadzi says Sho Madjozi used to call her, wanting a feature until she decided to do her album and collaborated with her. She says we can expect new sounds from her and the BET award-winning artist.
Makhadzi says she also worked with her ex-boyfriend Master KG ,on the album. The two recently made it public that they have called it quits.
“It’s always a good thing to work with him because when me and him collaborate it’s all about talent. He has his own talent and I have mine and we understand each other and everything we touch becomes a hit, and he’s the only producer whom I feel like we understand each other.”
Makhadzi who chose not to speak about what led to their breakup says, it was not her wish for people to know about her love-life.
“The only thing I also want and I wish could happen just that it didn’t happen the way I wanted, I only want people to know Makhazi for her performances and music besides my personal issues but because people already knew about my relationship there was nothing I can do but my wish is for them to know about my music only.”
The Limpopo queen is known for her acclaimed songs such as Matorokisi and Riya Venda and she says her album will have us sweating on the dance floor because it has a lot of dance songs.
“Fans must expect to dance from track number one to the last song because we have been on lockdown and the only thing people want is to dance and good music, so I am giving them the album to dance and have fun.”
She says she has already submitted her album for approval and she is waiting for the release date, which she will announce before Friday, but she says the album will released this September.
“A secret to every girl glow is to bath and believing in yourself and staying natural. I want to stay natural so that people will not see the fake Makhadzi they must know the real Makhadzi”
The musician says the lockdown has affected her also because she had tours in other countries like Namibia, but when everything opens she will travel.
