Idols SA’s Berry is out with her first official single titled “Ungowami,” which you can stream here on UbeToo, your go-to place for all things South African music.
If the claim, that a debut gives clues to how far an artiste might go, is true, then one might say that Berry is in for a long, productive run in the universe of South African music.
The songstress had wowed many on the Idols SA circuit with the song, which she delivered in the semi-finals. Her performance had been described as superlative. Part of the charms of that day rests in her delivery of the song in review.
An afro-pop jam, “Ungowami” takes fans through the corridors of love and possession. Bar after bar, one encounters a lady who knows what it feels like to love and be loved.
The song, fortunately, spares the listener drab interludes. It begins on a grand, immersive note and ends on the same.
On the strength of this song, it is easy to want to look out for what might drop next from Berry’s orbit. She’s good and has come a long way. Whether she eventually wins the 17th season of Idols SA is immaterial: She’s a fine talent and one to keep an eye on.
