Lex LaFoy is set to drop her new single Vuk Ekseni next week Monday which she wrote it in isiZulu. The song is basically a hustler's anthem for the people of Mzantsi to get up and be about their business. The special thing about the joint is also the art cover which sees Lex with her daughter at the start of their day too and this serves to salute the efforts of working mothers all over the world.
The joint's produced by her Durban production squad, The Nutscratchers. Check out what she said about how the song came about:
"“I told The Nutscratchers over the phone, after sending them the demo –The beat and song spoke to me in venac and what was especially beautiful for me, whose first language is English, is that I wrote it in isiZulu. I didn’t translate it from English-to- isiZulu. I remembered needing to know what ‘guide' (the verb) was, so I consulted my favourite online Zulu dictionary for the lines - ‘Amadlozi bayang’luleka, NgoThando bayang’thinta’ translated as: ‘I am guided by my elders, they touch me/communicate through love’”.
I can't wait to hear it!
