A young Khayelitsha singer hopes to travel the world and betting on her music to achieve that goal.

Alutha Taho has recently released a debut single titled Ndive Ndikhala, pinning her hopes on the hearts of many.

Taho, 25, is from Harare who became a recording artist as early as 2005 while a member of the now defunct hip hop group, GMC.

She said that she wrote the song as homage to music which has helped her deal with heartbreak in her life.

“I have been through some tough times and every time I just get on my guitar and sing.

Writing music has been very therapeutic for me so with this song I just explain this,” she said.

Despite her smooth voice and heart warming lyrics, Taho said she has had many disappointments as an artist.

“GMC split a few years after it was formed. After that split I decided to take a break from music.

I came back and I joined another group, this time, a soul hip hop group called Encore and again the group split as a result of difference of opinion.

I was so shattered, I even considered quitting music in 2015.

But I went back into the studio and started recording as a solo artist.

I had no label and no management, I was just making music,” she said.

It was around this time she met Thando Mtyobile, founder of Sisonke Music Entertainment, who then signed her.

She said that she has learnt a lot about the industry, key among which is patience.

“Sometimes it takes a lot to get where you want so I have to be patient.

Also to be careful of who you work with as other people have bad intentions but I’m happy where I am right now,” she said.

She said that her debut single is just a teaser for what she is planning to do in the industry.

There is a big storm coming, she says excitedly. She said that she is busy recording for the full offering which will be released later this year.

“I just want people to hear my music and share my gift. I want to see the world and if my music can do that for me then I know that I’m successful,” she said.

He song is currently available via sms music alutha to 38157 or follow her on social media.
