LIMPOPO –Â The 52-year-old singer, better known as Kgoshigadi, from Masha village outside Burgersfort, recently released her fifth album titled O mosadi, Ke mosadi part 2 which means ‘we are all women’.
She told CV that many women across the country fail to reach their dreams because they tend to undermine each other.
Julia added this is why she was inspired to write several songs which reflect how women live and behave towards each other to encourage them to stop their negative behaviour towards each other. “Strong music with wise message is the only solution to healing women’s lost souls,” she explained.
“This album was written and composed to educate and inform women to not undermine each other but to instead carry each other to the next level of success.”
She said, however, her music genre is different and difficult but growing up in a royal family motivated and encouraged her to make it this far. “Conserving and preserving the music’s heritage was a calling to me,” she explained, adding she developed a love for women issues a long time ago which inspired her to sometimes sing about women.
“My music has many messages and I want to reach as many people globally as possible because I believe they can learn a lot from my music.”
Her first album, titled The Reformed South Africa, which was released 17 years ago served as a stepladder to her in the music industry.
“My success in the industry is due to my passion, dedication and ambition towards my goals,” she said, adding she aims to release many more songs to motivate and encourage women.
She describes herself as a born artist who is also a talented writer.
“I believe the ego I have towards the entertainment world will push me to achieve more in my life,” she said.
