Women are valuable and golden, and two great voices in the music industry have teamed up to remind them of this. Mpho Sebina and Thato Jessica collaborated on ‘Masa,’ a sensual tune for any lady, according to them.
Masa is a soulful ballad with female-oriented melodies. It’s a celebration of being a woman at a critical juncture in history for women. They serve as a reminder of a woman’s worth, as well as self-love and self-awareness.
Mpho also managed to release the graphics for Pula, her latest single, which is a soul, hip-hop, and R&B mash-up. Mpho’s single was written and recorded during the lockdown in Johannesburg, and it is the artist’s approach of spreading hope during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Pula is a soul piece created and recorded during the lockdown in Johannesburg,” Mpho revealed to the Gazette. The music video was also shot in the comfort of one’s own home (in Joburg). The song takes you on a trip, exploring the emotional highs and lows that come with the COVID-19 pandemic’s new global state of life.”
