BULAWAYO-BASED award-winning songbird Novuyo Seagirl has said that her latest song Imbokodo released on women’s month is being well appreciated as it signifies how artistes are joining the world to make meaningful change in the society.
On the song, Seagirl teamed up with South Africa-based Afro pop musician La Dee to sing about modern-day struggles of women and celebrate their success.
Speaking to NewsDay Life & Style, Seagirl said she is elated how women have accepted the song which she claims to have specifically composed for them.
“The song is doing well and it’s on the top 10 charts in most radio stations, we are on 2.6k views on YouTube. Women appreciate it more because they can relate to the song and always complement big-time with some even sending the video clips jamming to the song,” she said.
“I wanted to acknowledge that women go through a lot and few of their victories are actually celebrated. I wanted a song that could shine a spotlight on them, and include all women despite class, gender and culture.”
She said it took her two years to complete the Imbokodo album and they almost gave up on the project.
“We lost the project twice because my producer was mugged and lost the laptop. We had to start afresh. I tried to get this album done for the past two years and ended up saying that all in good time. I guess it was not the right time and we had to accept that,” she said.

“The collaboration idea came up when I visited La Dee in South Africa, so we got excited about it and worked all night. The next day we went to the studio to record and it was super fun although we had to record again after the manager lost his laptop.” ENDS
