After a short musical sabbatical, songstress Ninja Lipsy, born Tendazvaitwa Chitimbe, has shown her versatility on a house music song.
Lipsy and South African songstress Nokwazi are both featured on DJ Noah’s song titled Vuma.
The song was released a fortnight ago and has already started to get airplay on South African radio stations.
“It’s good to be back and having to try something different,” said Ninja Lipsy.
“The song gave me an opportunity to come out of my comfort zone and work on a house track and also to work with other renowned artists such as Nokwazi and DJ Noah.
“I am a versatile artist who can do dancehall, rap, dance music and will always try to do new things.
“I am not just limited to dancehall which many have grown to know me for. Creativity doesn’t limit my abilities, hence I have tried my hand on house music and what other better way of doing house music than with the likes of Nokwazi those who run the show in Mzansi.”
