South African Music Award winning Jazz and Afro-pop singer, Judith Sephuma launched her new album titled One Word at Meropa Casino & Entertainment World on Saturday evening.
During the launch Sephuma performed some of the new songs from the new album such as ‘Joy’, ‘Jesus is Lord’, ‘You Reign Eternally’ and ‘Siyakudumisa’ in front of her myriads of fans.
Born and bred in Seshego Sephuma said she felt it would befitting to launch in Polokwane as a place where everything started for her. “This is where everything started for me. One Word is my sixth album and there was no better place to launch it but home,” Sephuma said.
She also mentioned that the launch gave her an opportunity to connect with people from all walks of life.
“It was an intimate performance. It was also good to dance with some of the people in audience,” Sephuma said.
On ‘One World’, which she describes as ‘funky afro-jazz’ Sephuma worked with songwriters from South Africa, Congo, Mozambique and Los Angeles. She also mentioned that she will be touring other provinces to market the album.
Public Relations and Promotions Manager at Meropa Casino & Entertainment World, Raksha Gunpath said they are excited to host Judith Sephuma and they are happy that she rocked Polokwane. “It was a good attendance. We had more than 300 people and it was amazing,” Gunpath said.
