Naimah started 2022 with a successful launch of “FOCUSED”, the lead single to her upcoming EP and she’s out with yet another beautiful song titled “UTHANDO LWAKHO”, featuring Zambian superstar Roberto.
Naimah and Roberto are seen in an intimate pose styled by Naimah herself in African royal regalia, intended to artistically represent and personify the concept of “black love”, a concept Naimah strongly believes is worth promoting in the dating culture of black youth today. Doing exactly that in this Afropop love song, “Uthando Lwakho” which means “your love” in Zulu, a South African dialect written with the help of singer-songwriter Chief SA whilst Naimah and Roberto both sing in English and Nyanja, a Zambian dialect. Naimah describes her latest release as an afrobeat ballad which fuses R&B and Pop influences.
Asked about how the collaboration with Roberto came about, Naimah says she anticipated this collaboration for over 4 years. “I sent a demo of the track with an open verse and Roberto agreed to the collaboration without hesitation. I was most honoured and blessed to work with one of my biggest Zambian inspirations.
Uthando Lwakho is available on all digital platforms.
