Pamela Nothando Bhulu’s new amapiano single Luthando Lo is making waves on radio charts across the globe.
The talkative and vibrant artist, who goes by the name Nomina, is slowly solidify her place as one of the leading artists in her genre.
Nomina says Luthando Lo talks about love and is, in fact, encouraging everyone to express love, and has that special element which evokes the spirit of appreciation.
Her previous hits were Amadlozi and Fetish Daddy.
Asked how she writes her music, Nomina says her song writing skills are mostly influenced by emotions, life experiences and at times a song does come through from a dream.
“Honestly this is one song where I feel that I have given the very best of myself into making this single.
“I have no proper explanation but it has that special and unique feeling that I have never heard before.
“I hope that everyone, when they listen to this song, will get a different feeling of love which would motivate them and a voice of reason,” she said.
Nomina says her African beats and mellifluous voice combined to create something special and unique and a cross-cultural sound.
Fetish Daddy, which was released in 2020, quickly reached hit status, with almost two million views on YouTube. Global stations like the BBC were fast to add it to their airwaves.
