Mmegi Online :: Shumba Ratshega comes back with Dikhwaere








Speaking in an interview this week, Shumba said that he released the album, titled Ntopolele Bichana, to show his detractors and reassure his fans that he is still a player in the music industry. The muso had gone on record a few weeks ago saying that he was bowing out of the industry. He says that he has been advised by his fans to reconsider his move.

"They told me I am too talented to quit at such a tender age, hence I have decided to come back," he said.

When asked if his decision to quit was forced on him after his dancers walked out on him he said: "I don't think the leaving of a dancer can destroy my music. I can always replace them or just borrow some from other groups," He also said that he has found spiritual guidance in the Lord.

"I am a Christian nowadays. I saw the need to seek the Lord after realising what people I had thought close to me

did to me. They badmouthed me and even tried to destroy my traditional group. I could hate them, but Christianity has taught me to be loving even to those who hate me. I have nothing against them and can help them any time they need my help," he said.

He also said that he was a happy father after his daughter was born last week. "My daughter's name is Tlotlo," he said. Shumba has promised to release a traditional music album next year.

The new album, Ntlopolele Bichana, has six songs. Some of the songs to look out for are Le Utlwa Ka Mang, Mpateleng mosadi and Ga ke tshoswe. He said this Friday he will be launching the album alongside the likes of Bujo Mujo, who just released an album, which features Kulenyane, a song that has earned him the ire of Culture Spears, who insist they originated the song.

"On Saturday I will be in Chez Ntemba to launch the album," he said.
