Simphiwe Dana

Simphiwe Dana‘s music may be light in melody but it is heavy and deep when it comes to its lyrics.

“Nzima”, the latest masterpiece from the South African singer, is inspired by the 2012 Marikana massacre of (mostly) striking mineworkers. According to what Dana says in interviews, the track is “essentially a prayer for people that have had a history of violence inflicted upon them.”
