Nkosazana Daughter tells Apple Music about Being Ready for Her Debut Album
I believe I reached a time whereby I was like “You know what, I have done so much,” and with this amount of work I’ve done it amounts to an album, which feels like I deserve it, the world deserves it from me. My fans deserve it from me to give out a project. This is my first ever project – even with the singles released before the project, it was the first time me releasing my own music.
Nkosazana Daughter tells Apple Music about Her “Rainbow” Sound
Well ‘Uthingo Le Nkosazana’ is a rainbow, and with the album I tried to feature as many people as possible with different genres, different styles and languages, and different styles in the music – as much as it’s amapiano there’s so many ways which I did the album which makes it feel like a rainbow to me. I felt like a rainbow because now I have all these different people doing different things, that are willing to work with me. It felt so much like a rainbow.
Nkosazana Daughter tells Apple Music about Her Aspirations
I want to perform in big stages – I want to be booked in LA, I want to do big stadiums, I want to do FNB Stadium in South Africa one day and everyone will just come and say “I am going to listen to Nkosazana,” and it’s just Nkosazana there, and this is the person they wanna listen to.
It’s not only about being a superstar, I wanna be healing to people. I want to heal people, I want them to feel a certain way every time they listen to my music.
