Tina to take the world by storm
After taking a long break to mourn her late husband, businessman and music promoter Prosper Mkwaiwa, who died in February last year, socialite Tina Dlangwana is back in the limelight and eager to rebuild her career.
“I am back with full force and I am here to stay as a dancer and singer. My journey continues,” said the reinvigorated Dlangwana.
She told City Press last week that the death of her husband was a “heartbreaking loss”.
“Your life gets altered in every way, but you have to mourn, start focusing on rebuilding your life and learn to live without them,” she said.
Dlangwana was already a successful dancer and singer in the industry when she met Mkwaiwa.
“I took a break to pay my respects to him as all cultures do, especially after losing the one you love,” she said.
Her music career saw her travel all over the world to perform in places such as the UK, Germany, France and other African countries. She became a household name due to her hits Induku, Ufezile, and Music is Power.
But it has not been smooth sailing for Dlangwana. She admits that people have often misinterpreted her frank and upfront manner as rudeness.
“I am not a bully – I am simply a straighttalking person who is frank, and I want things done in an orderly manner. When you are real, people will say you’re rude, but I am just being me and not meaning to offend anyone,” she said.
She wants to believe that her return to the limelight will give her fans the opportunity to appreciate her talent for what it is.
“I have been in studio working on new material. My new single, titled Tina Reloaded, and the title track Emanonini will soon be available.
“With this single, I am simply making a statement: ‘I am back, recharged and ready.’ I will be taking the world by storm,” she said.
To back up her claim, she told City Press that there were projects under way that would be revealed in time. She also promised her fans and supporters, particularly those who stood by her during her time of need, that she would be giving them “the best of her creative work”.
Dlangwana said she planned to take a new direction in music and everything related to it: “Just watch this space.”
