Moneoa burst onto the music scene no more than 5 years ago when she featured on Shugasmakx’s Take It Easy which is the theme song for Vuzu’s Mo Love. After spawning moderate hits like Is’bhanxa and More Than You from her debut album, Moneoa is now back with brand new single, Yekelela.
She talks about a relationship that has finally come to an end and tells her lover who is constantly testing the limits of her love just how difficult it is to let go even though she really needs to. I generally love Moneoa’s voice because she knows how to sing for her raspy tone. You’ll hear it in the video.
The song comes from her sophomore album Ndim Lo which was released on the 10th of this month. I was quite disappointed that I happened to stumble upon the song and not because of good PR. I still maintain that Moneoa is one of the best voices in the South African music industry at the moment and I think she would be an even bigger star with the right team.
Watch her perform her single Yekelela at Virgin Mobile’s Skyroom Urban Sessions below and let me know what you think.
