Happiest birthday to Makhadzi🥳🥳♥️

But before she can tell me all about it Makhadzi arrives over two hours late for our tête-à-tête.ربما تحتوي الصورة على: ‏‏شخص واحد‏، ‏‏‏رقص‏ و‏نشاطات في أماكن مفتوحة‏‏‏‏

She is sporting a loose-fit pair of black overalls when she finally decides to grace me with her presence and battling to maintain the two straps in place as they fall off her tiny shoulders.

She’s visibly nervous as she emerges from her red Mercedes Benz A-Class, but trying to keep her composure. I’m fuming with rage at this point and rolling my eyes at every turn.ربما تحتوي الصورة على: ‏‏شخص واحد‏، ‏‏نشاطات في أماكن مفتوحة‏‏‏

It’s true what they say you can’t buy charisma because as soon as she curtsies and flashes her bright smile, I’m melting like butter in the sun.

Makhadzi had me at “hello” just like the famous line from romantic film Jerry Maguire.

“I started on the street with five followers and they grew to 10 and 20. So God has always had a bigger plan for me. It has been a long journey,” she recounts.

“I remember I would stand in front of retail stores selling my music. People started to come to town knowing that there is this little girl that gives free performances on weekends.

“No one took me seriously, but I kept pushing.”

Makhadzi first entered the music scene through the popularised Limpopo’s wedding songs music genre.
