King of the World
The 25th of march marked the birth of a new era to music, a young talented singer from Orange Farm, known by his close friends, family and lovers of meditative sounds as Njabulo “NJ” Kunene.
To add the cherry on the cake, he invited like talents to take part in the extravaganza.
Voices that soothed the mood included Kgothatso Sethole (Kaecy) and to show versatility of languages, there was a soulful Venda artist who goes by the name Muneyi.
As if that wasn’t an overdose of sweet talent, there was also a poetess known as sky to also ooze off the joyous mood. He also had an acapella group known as Passion Drives Us to tip it off before he came jotting down the stairs to sprinkle his talent.
He set off the mood by doing a slow yet rhythmic rendition of L’vovo’s njalo nge weekend song.
He danced comfortably almost as though he was born on stage. His next song began with an apology as he placed his heart on the mic describing how he feels about a certain love interest.
The live band chosen was a handful of smarties to the ear, sounds stemming from a powerful bass guitar, with serenity from the back up voices who made it extra special.
Nothing could prepare the crowd for the eargasm Lizwe Lami is, certain members felt a deep sense of nostalgia while certain members of the crowd wept.
The room was completely silent as NJ’s voice filled the space. The single speaks of the bright future and serenity the world has as its creation right. Deep sounds that speak to the soul and call for world peace and eternal serenity.
One fan described the experience as “an awakening to positive vibes and human power”.
NJ proved he’s a force that’ll shake the world and break stereotypes.
