ADELLE NQETO ‘Folk singer, Adelle Nqeto, may be tiny but she has such a huge presence on stage; I watched her perform at Oppikoppi and was blown away. She writes her own songs and plays acoustic guitar. The festival circuit frequenter started Flint, Meet Spark, a duo that was promising and then she went solo. Look out for her new EP, Lights,’ says Helen. LA SAUCE ‘Rihanna is the musician La Sauce is most often compared to. Maybe it’s this Durbanite’s edgy dress sense and personal style. Or it could be her swagger-heavy vocals, which are perfectly suited to the pop soundscape that she enhances with Zulu lyrics. Signed to Ambitiouz Entertainment, La Sauce featured on Miss Pru’s “Phumelela”. Have a listen to her popular single, ‘‘Cooler Bag’’,’ says Helen. Helen Herimbi was raised in Sebokeng, in the Vaal Triangle, where music was always a part of her life. ‘I grew up in a home where my mother was always singing, and both my brothers are musicians. The Johannesburg-based music journalist has her finger on the music industry’s pulse and has played a vital role in South Africa’s music scene for years. Catch Helen on 4Plays on Touch HD.
