Lo­danda com­plains her mu­sic ca­reer un­der­mined by piracy

Observer on Saturday - - News -

Well known lo­cal mu­si­cian Lo­danda has com­plained that piracy is un­der­min­ing her hard work in the coun­try.

Speak­ing to other women at Sibane Ho­tel yes­ter­day the mu­si­cian stated that some peo­ple even ask her when she would re­lease her next al­bum and when she thinks they are in­ter­ested in sup­port­ing her she then finds out they are only af­ter re­pro­duc­ing her work and sell it on the streets.

She re­vealed that she started her tra­di­tional mu­sic ca­reer back in 2006, but has noth­ing to show as peo­ple just re­pro­duce her work to make money and she is only left to suf­fer yet she works hard.

De­spite this, Lo­danda dis­closed that she is proud to have cho­sen this genre of mu­sic as she can pride her­self in be­ing a Liswati.

“As soon as I start singing peo­ple are able to the that I am a pure Liswati.

From the be­gin­ning, my aim has al­ways been to ad­vance our Siswati way of do­ing things hence I al­ways sing about things that hap­pen in our cul­ture and our ev­ery­day liv­ing,” she told the women present on the day.
