Twenty-one year old Tanzanian-American singer, songwriter, and guitarist kezia (she/they) recently announced their debut EP entitled claire, and today she shares a new track off of the record. Following the previously released “megan fox” and “SUNSHINE” is “south!” produced by Hokage Simon and featuring acclaimed, up-and-coming British-Indian rapper NAYANA IZ.
Here’s kezia on the single: “‘south!’ That’s my dicksucking anthem! In a world where black women are uninvitedly sexualised, we need to take ownership of feeling strong and cemented in our sexuality. south! is about liberty. It’s also about consent! “will you walk into the fire, or will you walk out of my life, yuh” meaning u can choose the purifying flame of my love or you can continue to live in darkness without me.
“NAYANA’s verse adds another layer of storytelling to the overall plot. Effortless and blasé, her message conveys the strength of being in one’s personal power, an opulence radiating from within. She’s also dope and her delivery is sexy. I wanted a strong woman to emphasize the sexual energy of this track. She did just that.”
