Single for Hilda Mudau

Read: 1964

Hilda Mudau, an artist from Hamadiwana, released her new Afropop single, “Yalonga Kwandayonwa”, on 12 February. The new single, although out for only a few weeks, is selling well and has already made an impact in the market.

Mudau believes that music is a universal language through which she can interact with millions of people from different cultures across the world. “In spite of different languages, music connects us to a language we can all understand, and through it, we ignite global peace, unity, and harmony.”

She feels that music should appeal to the hearing sense even before it lodges itself into the listener’s mind and wins the heart over. “I know that it is very difficult to make it in this industry, but I am happy right now. Through the support of my fans, I am moving closer to my destination every day.”

When asked how she intended to promote her new single release, Mudau said performing live was difficult for her as she did not have musical instruments of her own. She said people could have everything they could wish for in life, but without God, they would never enjoy life to the fullest. "We are all created in the image of God and we should pay back by praising Him, and in my case, it is through music."

Mudau also lashed out at the people selling pirated copies of her work. “I spent a lot of time trying to be creative, but after the release of the album, it could be [sold] everywhere for a mere R5 or R10,” she said. She added that it was very stressful and depressing “to find your sweat and toil on street pavements, being sold for next to nothing”.

She appealed to the authorities to help artists in their fight against the scourge of piracy by arresting and giving these criminals stiff penalties.
