Durban-based singer and songwriter Tsitsi, also known as Tshiamo Dube has released her brand new single Soar! At the tender age of 14, this young musician with a sweet, mellow and strong voice is making her mark in the music industry. Soar follows the release of her first song What About Us. Soar encourages people to find and celebrate themselves even though they may have disappointed those they love. “There is so much pressure to be perfect, to please people, Soar is a reminder that things will work out and we will soar and rise above and beyond the expectations of others. It is a song about overcoming and being a better version of yourself. I want young boys and girls to feel encouraged and know that they are enough”, commented the talented beauty.
Born in Pietermaritzburg, Tsitsi is not only a good singer, but is also an amazing songwriter and feels that there is a lack of good local songwriters in Mzanzi so she wants to carve out a space for herself as a songwriter too. Tsitsi, plays exceptional guitar and is part of a Marimba band. Having performed at a number of events in and around Durban, Tsitsi is confident that her contribution to the music industry will inspire young people to work hard in achieving their dreams and bettering the world.
Tsitsi has a passion for swimming, gymnastics and tennis and is currently training for her second midmar mile. She firmly believes that the new generation can better themselves through a disciplined approach to life, whether it is through music, sports or another chosen hobby. She believes that a disciplined approach to life will make you a better person.
Soar is the perfect pop song infused with her mellow and emotive voice and an up-tempo beat. It’s the type of song you want to drive to, relax at home to or even to dance to at a party. Inspired by the likes of Mariechan, Dua Lipa, Alessia Cara and her wonderful family, Tsitsi also seeks to educate young people about the power of investing in their futures, financial responsibility and the relentless pursuit of dreams.
“I’ve always had a love for music and the way that it can make you feel – the magical experience you can have when listening to an emotional song is amazing. This is the special connection that I want to share with everyone through my music”.
Her passionate connection with music sparked in 2008 when she was gifted her first guitar. From that moment she fell in love with music and has been dedicated to building herself up musically.
