She dominated charts around the country with her debut album ‘Limpopo Champions League’ and ‘John Cena’ catapulted the star to international stardom and now, the colourful Tsonga queen is back with a new body of work as she drops her highly-anticipated new EP ‘What A Life’.
The project is a celebration of individuality and is a beautiful fusion of gqom, Afro-pop and the fast and exciting wave of new-age Xitsonga pop. The album sees Sho Madjozi proving yet again that while you can take the girl out of the village, you certainly can’t take the village out of the girl.
At its core, this is a project that champions the idea of embracing who you are, and is a brilliant showcase of what you can be when you are proud of where you are from. ‘What A Life’ gives us a confident and vibrant Sho Madjozi. It dives deep into the sounds of her birthplace in Limpopo, in Northern South Africa. This time around, Sho spins universal rhymes about love, friendship, dance and, for the first time, insight into her recent globetrotting success, with a sneak peek into the whirlwind few years the trendsetting Afro-pop songstress has had.
The new project includes the cheeky socio-political commentary of ‘DiHawks’, the vibey hardhitting anthem ‘Sena Ala’, and the electrifying Xitsonga dance hits ‘Amajoy’ and ‘January’. Perhaps the most noteworthy is ‘Shahumba’ featuring the legendary Tsonga singer and producer, Dr Thomas Chuake, in his first ever collaboration.
With ‘What A Life’, the songstress continues her quest of global domination while staying true to her colourful, cosmopolitan roots.
