I really enjoyed working on this album- Berita

Songbird Berita is on a roll! For her third studio album she shot the works scouting around for biggies including Mjakes Thebe and renowned Nigerian-born acoustic and electric picker, Kunle Ayo. Mjakes plied his trade on production and arrangements. There are other high-profile collaborators on the album, including Linda Gcwensa who is credited for writing Musa Sukwene’s hit song Mthande.

Together with Universal Music, Berita’s team recently invited industry insiders and members of the press for an exclusive listening session. Held at Universal Music premises in Rosebank in Johannesburg, the invite was honoured by industry hotshots such as Lesley Musina and Metro FM Music Award-winning house star, Mobi Dixon. Also in attendance; Mjakes Thebe and singer Tresor who is one of the song writers on the album. Titled Berita, the album is filled with accessible ballads and more troubadour- acoustic guitar-type material in the mould of songbirds such as Zahara and Vuyolwethu.

“I really enjoyed working on this album,” said Berita. “This is my third album, my self-titled and most precious album. I feel like I put in a lot of work with my producers musically and lyrically and my fans are really gonna feel and hear the growth in my music.”-MPHO TSHIKHUDO
