UK-based artiste pens Bosso song
UK-BASED artiste, Sisa Senkosi has released a single, her first, titled Amahlolanyama.
The five minute track featuring Zinjaziyamluma is a dedication for Highlanders Football Club that is celebrating 90 years of existence.
The Magwegwe-born songstress attaches strong celebratory emotions in the song as she sings from a nostalgic view of gracing Emagumeni.
Sisa Senkosi said the single is a teaser for her debut album to be launched during mid December.
“The single is taken from my upcoming album which I am putting final touches to and should be out in time for Christmas.
“I’m very excited by the whole project, it’s unbelievable. Besides I think Bulawayo needs more women musicians and pulling together will only make us stronger I believe,” she said.
She added that the song was more of a commemoration of a lifestyle she no longer enjoys since she is based abroad.
“When I approached Zinjaziyamluma with the idea he already had the same idea so we decided to do it. For me it was a matter of paying tribute to a part of my life that I don’t see much of now due to being based abroad,” she said. She said Highlanders was her source of pride and inspiration since her childhood, thus she had no difficulty in coming up with the song. “Having been born and bred koBulawayo Bosso has sort of been part of my life. I believe it is one of the last standing symbols of ubuntu. So I thought why not sing a special dedication to them for the contribution they have made in our society,” she said. Sisa Senkosi has worked alongside Woza pe r forming A r t s , Gra s s ro ot s Theatre productions, Siyaya Arts and she is also a co – founder of the UK based arts group, Flame Lily Arts. The musician has performed at the National Arts Merit Awards (NAMA), Glastonbury Festival, WOMAD Festival, Llangollen Festival and many other international festivals.
