THIS month sees award-winning Afrosoul singer Berita release her new single Surprises, the follow-up to her massive hits Nguwe Wedwa and Thandolwethu.

With a blissful tenor, Surprises is an inspirational tune that lyrically uplifts our spirits with each intoned harmony. As this motivational melody unwinds, Berita (25) sings about the simple ways to enjoy and appreciate life: “Let your light glow, life is so full of surprises”.

“This song is certainly one to brighten up your day when all seems gloomy and mundane,” she said. The Zimbabwe-born singer honed her singing skills in East London while studying financial information systems at Walter Sisulu University. In 2014, she moved to Johannesburg where she released Songs Of Empowerment and the Metro FM award-winning album Conquering Spirit .

The gold-selling artist, who collaborated with Hugh Masekela and Oliver Mtukudzi on the track Mwana Wa Mai, is now putting the finishing touches to her self-titled third album.

Surprises, the second single off the Berita album, was inspired by her feeling that “we should find joy in the present and hope in the future. The song is about the simple ways to enjoy and appreciate life, as it is unpredictable and full of surprises, so one should not wallow in their sorrow because we do not know what tomorrow will bring.”

The song conjures up thoughts of summer days and nights with good people and great ambience. Berita assures her fans: “If there is any tune out there that will set your year on fire and carry you through the beautiful Valentine’s Day and Easter seasons, Surprises is it.”
