Dr Malinga gives props to Bhu­daza

Lesotho Times - - Entertainment - Mo­halenyane Phakela

SOUTH African artist, Dr Malinga, paid trib­ute to the prow­ess of lo­cal Afro Jazz maestro at the Ul­ti­mate FM Mu­sic awards held at Thaba-bo­siu Cul­tural Vil­lage on Satur­day.

Dr Malinga, who per­formed soon after Bhu­daza’s act, was awestruck by the Hlot­se­based artist’s sax­o­phone and vo­cal skills as the lat­ter belted his trade­mark tunes.

Upon mount­ing the stage as the head­line act, Dr Malinga said he couldn’t get enough of Bhud­haza’s per­for­mance which has put Le­sotho’s mu­sic on the map in the south­ern African re­gion.

“Bhu­daza, you are very tal­ented my brother and I have been cap­ti­vated by your per­for­mance,” Dr Malinga said.

“When I was seated in the tent, I could not re­sist the har­monic melody that came from your sax­o­phone as well as your mes­meris­ing vo­cals which com­pelled me to move to the front of the stage so I can have an un­in­ter­rupted view.”

Dr Malinga then pro­posed a col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Ba­balas hit-maker, say­ing, “I en­vi­sion your ex­clu­sive sound merg­ing with Malinga’s mu­sic”, to which Bhu­daza re­sponded with a smile and wave.

After hail­ing Bhu­daza, the “karate kid” of South African mu­sic whipped the crowd into a frenzy with his en­er­getic per­for­mance.
