It took Lungi Naidoo 20 years to break it in the South African music industry and the Kwa-Dukuza talent has been working tirelessly behind the scenes.
Lungi speaks to DJ Keyez about surviving Covid19 and how horrific that ordeal was for her and her partner but she’s no stranger to adversity and she counts herself blessed for surviving something that was meant to destroy her.
With a new single, ‘Feel Good’ currently out from her upcoming EP “Courage” which is set for a September release, things are certainly looking good for the vivacious singer.
Listen to Lungi Naidoo’s full interview with DJ Keyez on The Ultimate Kaya 959 Top 30 here:
The single is an Afrobeats-rooted track co-written by Ghanaian producer and artist, GuiltyBeatz, best known for his hit “AKWAABA”, London- based Zimbabwean artist Donel Mangena & UK producer and songwriter Dantae Johnson.
Talking about the significance of the lyrics, Lungi said: “This song is about me, in every way. Sometimes when you’re down you got to envision your happiness as if you are already in that space. This song is about me giving praise in advance for all the blessings I am going to receive. To own one’s Queendom and feel good about it unapologetically.”
Lungi Naidoo has previously worked with Black Coffee on the 2016 number ‘Love on Fire’ and then again on Lungi’s song ‘Falling’ which featured the international DJ.
Her third album, Black Diamond was released in 2016 through Universal Music, Lungi’s first two albums were released independently.
