Johannesburg – Contrary to popular belief, Valentine’s Day is not only about romance.
It’s a day to celebrate all the things you love – including music.
For the loveliest day of the year, global music streaming service Deezer paired up with Mzansi vocal sensation Nomcebo Zikode to launch an exclusive “Music is Love” playlist.
The songstress, synonymous for singing about peace, hope and love, has put together her collection of personal favourites for listeners to enjoy.
In addition to some of her hits, Jerusalema and Xola Moya Wam, fans can expect to hear tracks from fellow South African artists; Zahara, Focalistic and ShaSha, as well as global hits like Fallin by Alicia Keys and Beyonce’s I Was Here.
The KZN-born singer, who made music waves across the world with her breakout vocal on Master KG’s hit anthem Jerusalema, continues to shine bright.
Last year, her solo hit Xola Moya Wam maintained the number one spot for most streamed track for seven weeks running and was also the eighth-most streamed South African track on Deezer in 2020.
Nomcebo shares more about the inspiration behind her “Music Is Love” playlist: What music can fans expect to hear on your “Music Is Love” playlist? “My fans, who I often refer to as #TeamNomcebo, can expect to hear some of my own music, as well as those from musicians who have inspired me. Fans can expect music with meaningful messages of love, hope and romance – paired with some funky beats.”
What is your all-time favourite love song?
“I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston.”
How much of your own love journey has inspired your song writing?
“In most of my songs, I take inspiration from my personal experiences and those of the people around me. My journey with love has been a special one and has played a big part in inspiring some of the songs I’ve written.”
