I first got to know about Mishumo when her friend Bonang (our girl) shared a link to her video a few years ago. I think the name of the song was You Do. I eventually learned that Shumi, as she’s affectionately known, is sisters with Maduvha Madima who is a well-known gospel singer and actress (she plays the cheeky Vele in Muvhango).
I’ve been following Shumi’s career for a while now. She moved to Nairobi, Kenya where she works for the South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation. I must say, I am impressed by the fact that she manages to do great work in her very demanding job and still makes time to follow her musical passions and ambitions.
Ndi A Zwi Divha is her second single this year. The first one she did was Mombasa Blues. The music videos for both songs were produced by Brainbow Productions, with Shumi and Maduvha as directors. The visual for Ndi A Zwi Divha sees Shumi don a wedding gown in some of Limpopo’s most beautiful areas including The Holy Forest in Venda.
In the below behind-the-scenes video, she talks about Mombasa Bues as well as Ndi A Zwi Divha, the song which has reggae influences and is sung in her native tongue of TshiVenda.
Watch Ndi A Zwi Divha below:
This is another artist whose music career I am excited about and who I would love to collaborate with one day.
