When Ma Nala first came into the scene we were pleasantly surprised to see that she is just as talented if not more than her brother, Anatii. Over the months though she has proven that she is her own person who is ready for the world to accept and embrace her talent.
Earlier on in the week we were invited to Ma Nala’s showcase. The sultry soul singer was performing some of the music that she has been working on over the last couple of months.
“So I was working on an EP but then I was not sure which direction I wanted it to go. I was just letting things be organic and genuine. So the first three songs I did were songs I wrote whilst in the States. I’ve been working with my brother Anatii and big Les who produces some of his stuff so yeah, it’s been organic and beautiful”.
She released her single, Soze late last year which gave us a glimpse into the type of writer she is. She makes very soulful music which has it’s grips in both the global and South African sound.
For Ma Nala, working with Anatii has it’s rewards
She also spoke to us about what it’s like working with her brother Anatii. “…sometimes we clash in the studio, it’s a brother and sister thing. You get along and sometimes you don’t get along but we make beautiful music together; that’s how Soze came about.” She also spoke about how they feed off each other’s creative energy.
“He’s like a mentor to me because he’s been in the industry for like 10 years so I’m learning everything from him”
Today, she dropped her new single titled Forever which features and was produced by superstar artist, Gemini Major.

Gate Crash With Sphaka – S02 E09 (BHPS)
Check out the latest episode of Gate Crash With Sphaka where Sphaka invades the Bacardi House Party Session hosted by Heavy K and Moonchild Sanelly. Sphaka spoke to a few of the attendees such as Darkie Fiction and a few members of the audience and asked about the general vibe and what they were feeling. The responses were positive all around.
As the Bacardi was flowing, we were entertained by a collaboration between Moonchild Sanelly and Heavy K which Sphaka had to find out about. According to Heavy K who had a conversation with Sphaka said that the song only took 10 minutes to make. This is crazy considering how great the song sounded.
