Nandi Madida and her husband Zakes Bantwini have new music on the way, if we are to believe anything that’s declared on social media.

Nandi Madida confirms new music on the way

On Monday morning, Madida quoted Zakes on Twitter, hinting that the couple has spent most of their time in quarantine doing a lot more than loving each other.

“We created magic during this pandemic! It’s almost time! [I] love you, thank you. Let’s change the game,” Madida wrote.

When can we expect a new album?

The songstress has been on a streak since her recent appearance on Beyonce’s Black Is King music film.

Without an album to her name, Madida has largely maintained a solid career as a featured artist. Her collaboration with Skhanda Republic’s empresario K.O titled Say U Will bagged the Best Collaboration category at this year’s South African Music Awards (SAMAs).

This will be the second collaboration between Madida and her hubby, at least that we know of. The first time the two love birds were heard on wax was on 2015’s hit single Dance.

Since then, Madida has managed a sporadic music catalogue, featuring on a mix of hit singles, including Skhanda Love, Africandy, In My Skin and Fly Away.

There’s no telling if this promise of new music means that Madida is releasing an album. However, the thought of having Zakes involved holds a great deal of excitement.

In an unrelated tweet, Madida shared her thoughts on racism and black oppression, drawing more inspiration from her involvement in Black Is King.

“Racism is a form of jealousy and insecurity.. black people are geniuses, insanely talented, inspiring and blessed beyond.. you’ll either love us for that or hate us for that. But it still doesn’t change THAT.. our greatness,” she tweeted.

We stan a queen focused on the fight against black oppression and other social injustices.
