SOUTH AFRICA-BASED Zimbabwean songbird and novelist Sithandekile Thina Maseko, popularly known as Miss Thina, says she will be dropping her debut album titled Umona next month.
A Maskandi singer, Miss Thina was born and bred in Plumtree before she relocated to South Africa.
Miss Thina told NewsDay Life & Style that the album will carry many tracks that portray challenges that people encounter in their day-to-day lives.
“I am working on a new album Umona that will be released next month, hopefully my fans will like the songs. The album contains songs with strong meanings that reflect the struggles of people as I intend to comfort, and educate people with my music,” she
Miss Thina said growing up in an environment where she was surrounded by artists inspired her to start her own band.
“I have been surrounded by different artists from Zimbabwe and South Africa that include Polo Makhoba, Isinavu and Zinja Ziyamluma,” she said.
“I used to ask different artists questions and write articles about them which helped me to gain knowledge and experience. Last year, I decided to combine all my experiences into songs.”
Miss Thina said she was working on a novel titled Amathuthuva Enhliziyo, which reflected on how women suffered at the hands of men in the name of love, set to be published in November.
