by lira so not many can say they have serenaded nelson mandela and barack obama the cheek and she joins me now in studio welcome to the africa i'm so excited that you're here you know i watched you play perform at the concert house last night here in berlin and your music just has this feel good vibe right if you switch your pages to it but that's really all of the music that's deliberate that's very deliberate it's really on purpose growing up in south africa and eighty's i think i got a taste of life that was unsavory and i made a conscious choice that i didn't want to add any need to that issue world and i found just shifting one's focus towards the positive actually makes for a positive lifestyle if you will write great that we're going to talk more about your music in a 2nd but you know you've also become a champion for black women in a sense and i wondered why do you think that so many people relate with you as a role model in that sense i'd like to think i'm
3:24 am
a champion for women period irrespective of color. and the reason that is being the case is because i've found that i've been so emancipated in my journey. i'm a woman who runs a business and i've been in business for 15 years very empowered as a woman in music as well that i really wanted for other women. so it's really about sharing everything i've learnt of my journey and i really think at it she does everything you know and so i put these things out in terms of everything i do out there in the world yeah so up in the world a place that you have travelled your music has taken you places but you are still sort of firmly rooted in african i wanted what is your vision for our continent. my greatest vision is for all of us to just be happy to be quite honest just know that our needs are met the just be happy and know that we can dream and have our dreams come true but i've also realise that it's not about waiting for the circumstances
3:25 am
to change external there's a lot that one can do within oneself that will then influence how you engage with life and i feel like that's a point of power for anyone and so that's really my focus is is to push that sort of agenda through education through exposure through networking through sharing. and yeah because i've just seen it work in so many scenarios that it's something i actually believe in. so your last album you release it in 2016 and i wondered if we get a scoop here i did of you are you working on any exciting projects at the moment to declare. what but you've got to go in knowing where you're going to mix thoughts we have to keep up with your kind of. i spent about 3 months in the united states working with grammy award winning produces and songwriters and really it's just understand they process of creativity and i mean you've got global hits coming out
3:26 am
of their part of the world and i really wanted to learn as well so. i have a body of work that we've worked on that does come from that it's very exciting it's very different from everything i've done and i thought it's ok sometimes to just experiment just to see how that goes so the album is african american in everything for. me is an infusion of my roots as an african and of course that american flavor so it is quite poppy in modern in many ways but it still has that distance of lira and an undeniable african fled to it so i really cannot wait to shared with everyone oh we can't wait to hear it i mentioned to the viewers when we when i did you see that you performed for nelson mandela the youthful form that the inauguration of barack obama but i wanted what has been your single most highlight in your career oh acing you know it's been 15 years it's tough to pick one wow. well i guess performing for africa south africa's 1st black president and
3:27 am
america's 1st black president i know that's too but it was quite a significant thing for me. and i guess if there's ever one more song you are hearing at the world cup in south africa ok one of the most watched things about it is that maybe we have a few seconds left but i have these very poor questions for you the 1st thing that comes from i had what would you most like to have. dancing so you don't believe that you know what they're so estate which living person you most of my oprah winfrey ok which words or phrases do you most overuse. brilliant. what is your most market characteristic my my my my most mocked characteristic. i would think it's my smile. it's very good also if you don't read things there and i thank you so much for
