Ngemuva kweminyaka engabonakali umculi we-Afro-soul uSiphokazi Maraqana usekulungele ukuthatha indawo yakhe endimeni yezokungcebeleka.

Lo mculi wahoxa emehlweni omphakathi ngemuva kokukhipha i-albhamu yakhe yesibili ngo-2009 ngesikhathi eshiya inkampani yokuqopha i-EMI ukuze aqhubeke nomsebenzi wakhe wokucula njengomculi ozimele.

Engxoxweni ekhethekile abe nayo ne-Scrolla.Africa, lo mculi wengoma ethi Amacala uthe impilo iphinde yashintsha ngesikhathi ecabanga ukuthi izinto seziqala ukukhanya.

Ebuzwa ngezingqinamba adlule kuzona uthe ziningi izinto ezenzeka eduze kwakhe wathi ezinye izinqumo azithatha zamfaka engozini waze wazizwa egcindezelekile.

“Angifuni ukukhuluma ngokwedlule kodwa ezinye izinselelo engidlule kuzo ngesikhathi ngiqopha i-albhamu yami yokuqala neyesibili ngaphansi kwe-EMI izinselelo abaculi abasha ababhekana nazo namuhla kule ndima.

“Lesi bekuyisikhathi esinzima empilweni yami kodwa ngenxa yokuthi ngiwumuntu ozihlalela yedwa nganquma ukuhoxa emehlweni omphakathi. Ngakhala ngathandaza ngakho,” esho.

USiphokazi uthe akakaze ashiye endimeni yomculo. Wakhipha i-albhamu yakhe yesithathu njengomculi ozimele ngo-2018 kodwa ayizange iphumelele njenge-albhamu yakhe yokuqala neyesibili.

Wengeze ngokuthi akazisoli ngokudlula ohambweni olunzima ngoba ungcono, uhlakaniphile futhi unamandla.

“Ukube bekungezona izinhlungu nokuzabalaza ngabe angiyena umuntu ohlakaniphe enginguye namuhla,” esho.

Abalandeli bakhe bazokhunjuzwa ngohambo lwakhe lomculo kwikhonsathi yakhe ezayo i-Timeless Music Encounter ezoba ngoNcwaba e-Carnival City.

Okwamanje uSiphokazi umatasatasa ne-albhamu yakhe elandelayo. Akakanqumi ukuthi izokhishwa njenge-albhamu noma njenge-EP.
