As an artist, Ronewa Luvhiya aims to send across messages of hope, motivation, comfort, and joy to lovers of music.
Popularly known as Crystal in the music industry, she hails from Ha-Muila village.
“I sing about things that are happening every day,” she said. “I am a healer for human souls and I only use lyrics accompanied by sounds for ointment to their wounds. In simple terms, I believe that singing can heal broken souls.”
She stated that she had discovered her talent when she was about eight years old, when she used to sing alone in the shower. “I was too shy to sing in front of people, so the bathroom was my closet during those days,” she said. “Music means everything to me. I have come to discover that there is an important message in every kind of music.”
She was mentored by Fantastic Boy. “He has been always there for me from the start, and he encouraged me not to quit but to be patient,” she said. “My mom has been an inspiration too. She inspires me so much because she is the one who pushed me to do what I love, and she has faith in me.”
She holds the view that music is the loudest speaker that can speak to everyone in the world. “People love dancing, and while they are dancing, they also enjoy the lyrics of the music,” she said.
Crystal’s hits include, among others, When I think about you, Mama I'm sorry, and My sunshine.
Her hobbies include acting in dramas and she looks forward to a career in law and psychology.
“I believe that, as an artist, I have to strongly believe in myself. Being in the music industry is not easy, but one has to hang in there and continue being creative until one hits the right cord that makes one’s music unique and appealing,” she said.
