Listen to @MsSUPA NEW SINGLE ‘VIBE’
Women who entered into male-dominated industries were often labelled ‘overly ambitious’, but this did not stop them from proving the naysayers wrong and owning the space even if it meant that they had to work twice as hard at it. Over the years things have changed, but we never forget key players who paved the way before us.
MsSupa, real name, Ayanda Malele has announced the release of her brand new single ‘Vibe’ produced by Cyrus Beatz.
MsSupa previously thought that Hip Hop was for males and it was only after hearing Foxy Brown in 1996, where she realised that females were ‘able’ to rap. She started rapping at the age of 13 and has never put her pen down since. Being active in the music industry since 2003 and she has carved a name for herself in the Hip Hop community as the first female to have adorned the cover of South Africa’s main Hip Hop Magazine, Hype, by 2005.
‘Vibe’ is the first single, after the success of her previous and highly anticipated EP entitled ‘HerStory in the Making’ & Supa continues to showcase her versatility and range through the type of music she releases, this is why she has been dubbed ‘The First Lady of SA Hip-Hop’ by her peers.
‘Vibe’ is a feel-good song about a good time and Supa wants the fans to have just that, a jam . Supa is know to be quite a serious lyricist and on this single she wanted something that could get people to have a good time and add something different from what she’s known for, to the current musical narrative.
“It’s always exciting to release new music. It’s like finally revealing another side of yourself and hoping it resonates with someone else. I’m quite excited about releasing Vibe as it marks a new era in my musical career. I get to have fun and integrate Hip Hop with a South African vibe. People can expect new music that is current and has major South African influences. I’m also rapping in vernac a lot more, which is something pretty new for me, but it’s a side of me I had not really explored in my earlier work.” Says MsSupa
