Somizi strives to join Obani Lababantu Foundation
Somgaga has his eyes assail 65-year-old Gqom sensation, Gee Six Five, and needs to collaborate together with her.
The oldest Gqom musician currently has the chart-topping song Obani Lababantu, which suggests ‘who are these people?’, and other people are loving it.
The vivacious entertainer Somizi Mhlongo was lounging around in his home when he put it out there that he wants to figure with Gee Six Five. Singing along to the lyrics, he hilariously acknowledged that the song could be the most important thing immediately.
Even though social media has been ridiculing the song and therefore the elderly woman, making memes out of her, the grandma to 13 grandchildren’s single has been climbing the digital download sites’ ever since it’s release on 19 November and she or he couldn’t be happier.
Speaking to Sowetan Live, she said she wants to show people to never put a time-frame on their dreams; “I started composing the song in July, writing and singing until the lyrics were in my head. The plan was to try to ingwijikhwebu or something which will take the country by storm. The message altogether this is often that it’s never too late to become what you would like to be. Don’t be afraid to explore your own talents due to the naysayers. I just wanted to try to do what was never done before,” she said.
The retired teacher explained to the publication that the song simply tells a story of gossipers and oftentimes people ask having haters, but successively, they themselves also can fall apart of those ‘haters.’
“People always say… abantu bayangihleba (people are gossiping about me), abantu bayangizonda (people hate me). We never include ourselves. The song offers an issue and a solution. Through the song, I’m asking an issue, who are these folks that we always refer to? …and the solution is me, you, her, and every one folk.”
Gee Six Five’s real name is Alpha Selepe and she or he is from KwaZulu-Natal. She definitely is an idea as she revealed to the publication that she has been trying to form it big for over 20 years. She first released a gospel song within the year 2000 but that didn’t compute.
All because of the powers vested on social media, where everything and anything goes viral, she is now an online sensation. Relatability also plays a serious role in the success of her song because it’s almost the festive season and children want to enjoy this point taking note of music and dancing. Her song takes care of all of these needs.
