Ambitiouz Entertainment‘s Afro Soul singer, Cici has finally unveiled her highly-anticipated album that she titles by her first name, “Busiswe.” This project of musical art is one that will take you on a musical journey you never thought possible.
This isn’t too much of a surprise considering the fact that Cici whose real name is Busisiwe Thwala is a symbol of hope, of strength, of courage and of survival. Yet, she accentuates her own personal story as an inspiration to uplift others.
The multi-talented award-winning singer, songwriter and actress might have looked to have everything going for her on the surface. A great career, award nods, TV shows, features on drama series, an amazing, golden vocals that’s fit only for celestial beings, the gorgeous looks of a damsel…
However, on the personal front, Cici suffered a turbulent relationship with former boss and boyfriend, Arthur Mafokate; with several reports of domestic abuse.
This just highlights the fact that even the best-placed amongst us could fall victim of this ugly menace.
Fortunately, the Ladysmith, KwaZulu-Natal-born songbird isn’t a quitter and instead channelled her pain into her music. Not just to help her heal; but to help others who might be going through the same path.
We have seen it on songs such as “Iqiniso,” where she unveiled the the connection of the heart, the soul as well as let the pain shine through with a visual imagination of her realistic audio delivery. Then we also got “Amandla Akho“ and couldn’t be more amazed.
Now, we have an entire body of work in the “Busiswe” album and it is a project of musical art that’s deep, powerful, sombre, soulful, sad, thought-provoking, uplifting and inspirational.
These kinds of musical material aren’t too common these days in the make-belief musical industry where everything is supposed to centre around the bling, being the boss and the best thing that ever happened to the world since the Beatles.
However, Cici brings reality to bare on her “Busiswe” album; projecting an image to the world simply by looking into the mirror and we believe this is one that’s surely going to resonate with many.
The “Busiswe“ album a 12-track classic that holds iconic and evergreen potentials to its offering. Plus, Cici made this effort a solo ride and journey with no feature whatsoever. You do not want to be told about its magic.
