Cape Town – South African musician Ndivhudzannyi Ralivhona, popularly known as Makhadzi, has opened up about her tough journey to becoming one of the successful young musicians of today.
According to TshisaLIVE, the Limpopo-born musician went from “dancing at taxi ranks to entertaining the entire country”.
Makhadzi grew up in a small village called Ha-Mashamba Tshivhangani.
“Looking at how far I’ve come, I struggled a lot when I started but at that time I enjoyed what I used to do because I didn’t start by making music. I wanted to make money through music. I was doing music because I liked dancing so I was doing it out of love and not knowing I will be where I am today. I feel like it was God’s will and he knows my destiny,” the report quoted Makhadzi as saying.
Climbing the ladder with hard work and determination, the star said she wished to work with international artists like Beyoncé.
“I have been DMing Beyoncé for the longest time. I understand she is busy but I’m praying to God that she has to one day have me at one of her concerts so she doesn’t have to open my DM. She must put me on stage with her so we can work together. I believe it will happen,” she said.
The 25-year old Ghanama hitmaker recently left Idol SA viewers clapping in awe after she delivered a powerful and high-spirited performance.
She also announced last month that she bought herself a house after she built homes for her father, mother, and grandmother.
“My dream was to see my parents and my grandmother living a better life. I didn’t care about wearing expensive clothes but to make sure all my family have a place to sleep and hide hunger, and God chose me to make a difference. When you pray and work hard everything is possible,” Makhadzi said at the time.
