Songbird Bucie whose real name is Busisiwe Nqwiliso has indicated that she’s ready to hang the mic.
According to what she revealed to Sowetan during a chat, her upcoming fifth album titled Rebirth will be her last.
Bucie has dedicated over a decade to her career in the music industry, but now, she plans to focus more of her energy on her family.
Nevertheless, she is not leaving the industry entirely as she will be empowering fellow female artists and also produce artists under her record label. In addition, she will still record collaborations with other artists.
“I’m established, now my focus is to empower other female artists. I have artists under my label and my focus will be to make them stars.
“This is my final album, I’m out. I also just want to take some time off and spend it with my family. I’m a newlywed and a mom again. I have my sons, I need to spend time with them.”
Apparently, these changes will avail her the opportunity to be with her family. At least, she would get to avoid the hectic schedule of performing at events.
She explained that the reason behind the delay for the release of the much-anticipated album is because she wants it to be the best. Thus, Bucie is taking her time to record Rebirth. The album’s first single Rejoice, featuring Black Motion has been released since last April. However, it was just this week that she dropped her second single Love Me Right featuring Mobi Dixon.
Earlier this year, Canadian rapper Drake and house maestro DJ Black Coffee, turned Bucie’s hit track Superman into a masterpiece. The collabo was a hot one, but Bucie’s velvety vocals did not get a spot in the revamped song. Instead, the new song titled Get It Together features British vocalist Jorja Smith.
Consequently, the song was met with mixed feelings from South Africans upon its release. However, SA songbird Bucie said she has a lot to gain from the collaboration even without her voice being used.
