HOUSE-KWASA musician Viviane Nkiwane has released her second album entitled Bazali Bami.

Her debut album, Nomakanjani, was released in 2011.

The 25-year-old musician has been based in South Africa for a couple of years, but told NewsDay she was back in the country to stage live shows.

"I will be staging a number of live shows in the country especially in Harare where people appreciate my music.

"House-kwasa music lovers there are very supportive. They come in numbers when I perform," she said.

The former dancer for Allen Ndoda, a Kalanga musician, said she would have her debut show in Harare before touring other cities in April.

Nkiwane bemoaned lack of support from people in Bulawayo.

"Support for local music is lacking in Bulawayo. People here tend to appreciate music from outside the country than local music," she said.

All songs on her second album have a heavy kwasa music beat.

Tracks on the album include Bazali Bami, Jabula, Umkhuhlane and S'thandwa Sami.

In Bazali Bami, the musician thanks her parents for doing all they could to ensure that she had a good upbringing.

Jabula is a dance song that calls on people to have fun.

Umkhuhlane is a song about the HIV and Aids scourge which calls on people to be careful as both old and young can fall victim to the disease if they are promiscuous. S'thandwa Sami is a love song in which the musician heaps praises on the love of her life.




Nkiwane's songs have received fair airplay on National FM.

Her album was recorded at KB Studios in South Africa.
