Few months after releasing her newest project ‘What A Life’, South African songstress, Sho Madjozi, comes through with a vibrant music video for the project’s latest single ‘Shahumba’ featuring Dr. Thomas Chauke. which also happens to be the first music video to be released off the project.
The song tells a story of a young girl navigating life in her hometown and the special relationship she has with her father, who has influenced her musically. Having contributed immensely to the development of the XiTsonga language, it is only fitting that Dr. Chauke features in this reflective video as Madjozi is a proudly Tsonga woman who has made it her mission to always pay homage to her culture in her music.
“I felt so blessed to be the studio with the great Dr Thomas Chauke. We were working and creating and combining our sounds. And the moment really hit me just after we finished making the beat. That I’m really here. This is a dream come true,” Sho Madjozi tells us. “He asked me what I want to sing about and I told him I wanted to sing about how unbelievable it was to have the opportunity to be there working with him. So we sang about where we’ve come from and celebrated where we are now.” She said
“Shahumba is about our journeys as two musicians from rural Limpopo who have been able to achieve our dreams despite the challenges. I look up to Dr Thomas Chauke so much, so we decided to tell it as a sweet story of a father and his daughter,” Sho Madjozi continues. “It’s a beautiful and heart-warming video about victory.”
Sho Madjozi recently featured on the cover of Moziak Magazine. In the interview she mentioned that she is going to keep her head down and focus on crafting her project to be releases in 2021.
