What's it like?
The album's first single and video, Nzima is one of three songs on the album inspired by the the Marikana Massacre and sets the tone for an album that is as political as it is soulful and beautiful. Simphiwe has never been afraid to talk her mind on issues, especially when they relate to Africa and it's troubles and on Firebrand she does it again, delivering powerful sermons over a wonderfully powerful voice.
