It’s so inspiring and life giving to see women rise in the music industry. For decades we’ve seen women deprived off equal rights and opportunities as men and yet a few of the women who have survived the industry are usually misunderstood and robbed off their titles by a certain labels and individuals we call promoters. All the way from the City of Kings comes one of the prominent queens who has managed to pull through since 2018 and her name is Mandie Mae.
Born Nomagugu Amanda Nkomo, is a Zimbabwean Afrodancehall/Reggae artist, songwriter,pianist,dancer and actress who is aged 18. Mae started doing music in late 2018,with the release of her single titled ‘Mash Up Di Place’. The artist defines her music genre as ‘Afro-Dancehall/Afro-Reggae’ with a reason of how she mixes the Jamaican sound with her African/Zimbabwean sound.
“My current inspiration and dream features are the likes of Shenseea, Christopher Martin, Stonebwoiy, Koffee and Nutty O”.She Said!
‘Wah Mean’ is a single she did recently which talks about how a lady can crush on a guy but end up losing interests because of impatience since a lady will have to wait for guy to make his move first and yet delays which becomes a total turnoff for the lady. The song was produced by an award winning and multi-awards nominee Murphy Cubic. Visuals for the track are still in progress with Wavey Media being the directors.
Mandie is yet to release a 5 tracked Ep titled ‘What did I say’ which is expected to drop some time in April this year. Good news is that she will be releasing her lead track from the coming Ep titled “99 percent” featuring great names such as the ‘Mambo’ Asaph, ‘your future baby mama’ Lee Mchoney and the young and aspiring female vocalist Acquillah K.
