2015-11-17 18:28

I had the opportunity to run into LeAnne Dlamini at the H&M x Balmain launch. This woman has it all...she is beautiful, independent, powerful, strong and she has a magnificent voice.She is also a wife to a man she loves dearly not forgetting that she is a mom!! Talk about a Super Woman!

Below is the quick Q&A I did with LeAnne Dlamini:

1. Leanne you are admired by thousands of young women in South Africa, what advice do you have for them? 

My advice to young women out there would be to stay true to who you are,stand up for yourself & start believing in yourself. We don't love ourselves enough & i really believe that once you love yourself,your'e able to love others better & live our best lives

2. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? 

A really super successful artist & business woman, wherever i'll be living in the world. Raising my kids & loving my husband,that's about it :)

3. What do you think about the music industry reducing the number of sales to reach platinum and gold?

As someone who knows the effects of the music industry & the internet,i'm okay with it. It is a little disheartening considering how hard we work on projects,but the internet has made music accessible to all & so easy & i think we needed to find a middle ground & i guess this was it.

4. What do you think of the current music industry in SA and in Africa?

I think music in SA & Africa are at it's peak. We have never sounded or looked better & the world can't help but notice. Just wish they would play more local content on radio.

5. What advice do you have for the youth? 

To work as hard as you can to achieve your dreams. Hustle hard & think outside the box. The sky is the limit. Nothing is holding you back now.

6. What is your opinion on the #FeesMustFall campaign? 

It was about time & had to be done. Education has become too expensive & students needed to take a stand & you know what,it worked!

7. How important is networking? 

Networking is crucial,no matter what field of business you're in. It sets the foundation for where you're going & what you wanna do. Be brave,bold & step out!

8. You dress extremely well. What would you say is your perfect style item? 

I'm a very chilled casual kinda gal,so a ripped pair of boyfriend jeans would be my perfect style item. I can dress it up or down.

9. How do you manage a music career, kids and being a socialite all at the same time?

With careful planning,scheduling & a great support system. My amazing nanny as well as my mom make things work for me when i can't.

10. What's the best aspect about being a mom? 

Seeing my children grow,watching  their personalities develop & just living life through their eyes is incredible. They have taught me what true love is.

11. Where can we get your latest album? How much does it cost? 

I'm still working on it,but my new single No Sweat is available on iTunes.

12. What would be your dream collaboration? If you could collab with anyone internationally? 

Ooh,that's a tough one,but it would probably be with Beyonce,only because i'm her no 1 fan,lol.

13. What is your ultimate goal?

To fill up the dome like Cassper & then some :)
