Lodanda complains her music career undermined by piracy
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.
