A young musician from Alexandra Nokulunga Qwabe (22) famously known as ‘Nardi’ in the music industry, used to specialise mostly in neo soul but has tapped into amapiano and her music is currently making waves.

Nardi has been passionate about music since the age of 12 and was inspired by songstress Rihanna. She started writing and recording her songs five years ago. The first song she recorded was titled, I’ll be with you.

On February 23, Qwabe released Khuleka featuring Sir Ice Muzik.

“This song is about the journey of self-discovery and healing and I want to encourage people to create a relationship with God. I want prayer to be their everyday bread not only to pray when life gives them lemons,” Qwabe said.

The song has been gaining momentum and has been featured on several major platforms. Channel O featured the song on their Best of Crispy Fresh list, which showcases the hottest new music from South Africa.

The song has also been streamed over 100,000 times on YouTube and has been added to over 80 playlists on Spotify, but perhaps the biggest milestone for Nardi is her synch placement on Skeem Saam a popular South African television show. The song will be featured on the show from April 12 and will reach a wider audience than before.

Qwabe said she could not even explain the feeling because all this caught her by surprise but she is thrilled with the success of Khuleka and hopes to use it as a springboard to further her career.

“Honestly speaking, all this feels like a dream to me because what is happening at the moment went beyond my expectations. I can’t even explain how I feel because this is a huge achievement for me. I am very grateful for the love and support I’ve received and I’m glad that my song is resonating with many people.”

For Nardi music is more than just a career it is a way to connect with others and make a difference in the world.

“I want to use my platform to advocate for social justice and to spread the messages of hope and positivity and this song is meant to be a national prayer anthem.”
