Episode Overview

Nsoki has always loved singing since she was a young girl, starting with singing in the Church choir.  But it wasn’t until 2012 that the Angolan superstar decided to follow her heart and her dreams, and turn her passion into her profession.

She launched with her very first single ‘Meu Anjo‘ which means ‘My Angel’ in Portuguese.  The single was an immediate hit in Angola and other Portuguese-speaking countries.  Nsoki followed the success of her single with launching her first album by the same name the following year.  That album received critical acclaim and won several awards, including “Female Voice of the Year’ and ‘Best Newcomer”.

Nsoki traditionally sang love songs in her native Portuguese.  But she realized that she could also use her platform encourage Africans to be proud of our continent, and to promote peace and unity across Africa.

It was also an opportunity for her to expand her fanbase to non-Portuguese speaking countries.

In 2017, she released the single ‘Africa Unite‘ to huge success across Africa. It also launched what has become Nsoki’s signature dance move!

On May 25th 2018, which was Africa Day, Nsoki released her latest single ‘African Sunrise‘ which talks about the struggles and joys of living in Africa.  The song, which has an Afrobeat that you can’t help but dance to, includes melodies and lyrics sung in Kikongo and Swahili.

While Nsoki acknowledges that the music industry has its challenges, she says you should always follow your heart and do what truly makes you happy!
