Vhuthuhawe Victoria Madondo (26) from Tshifulanani Fhasi Ha Bada (Mathule) is gradually starting to make her dream of becoming a successful Amapiano and House singer come true.
Her music is full of vibe, reflecting her own lively personality. She told Limpopo Mirror that her musical journey started back at Sunday school and church, where she was a member of first the youth choir and then the church’s worship team.
“Takalani Trustic Maphuli saw my potential and invited me to join him in the studio. While I backed him on some of his music, my singing talent was honed a lot along the way.”
When she wrote and recorded her first song, Ndo nanga, she never thought that it would be such a hit. But the song propelled music lovers to the dancefloor for many months. “I was really moved by the people’s response, so I started writing more songs,” she said.
She sipped influence from the music of Maduvha Madima and Malondolo. Soon she had more hits to her name, such as Impilo (ft Trustic), and the most recent track, Kolongonya. She is currently working on her first full-length album, which is due one of these days.
“We have recorded most of the songs but, as you know, the music industry requires excellence, so we prefer to do one song many times over, until we feel satisfied with the outcome,” she said.
Vhuthuhawe matriculated from Thohoyandou Secondary School, attended Nazarene School of Natural Science, and obtained a certificate in financial management from Vhembe TVET College.
