  1. Introduce yourself, tell us about your new single ‘Sondela’ and the inspiration behind it?

I’m Valee Music, in a nutshell I’m a London Afro-Pop artist originally from Zimbabwe!

I love ‘Sondela’, it’s song about passion and giving love a second chance. My music is drawn from my experience most of us are reluctant to love again after heartbreak. But this song says ‘Sondela’ which simply means ‘’Come closer!’’.

  1. How would you say you’ve evolved over the years? Has your music grown?

I’ve definitely grown a lot! I find that I now allow myself to be the sexy confident woman that I am. And you can hear that in my music and lyrics used in my stories. My music is for powerful ladies. I run my brand and am supported by an amazing team but I want that message to translate in my songs.


  1. What are your biggest influences?

My influences are so many! From the likes of Busi Mhlongo to Lebo Mathosa, Ringo Madlingozi & Oliver Mtukudzi. I love these guys because they told a message through their music!


  1. What makes you a versatile artist?

I think it’s my ability to blend my cultures that makes me versatile. Born in Zimbabwe with a South African heritage & growing up in London. I like having the ability to go from one to the other. I don’t like to box myself from Amapiano, to Dancehall and Afrobeat. I think my new EP will show how very versatile I am!

  1. Are you looking forward to working with any artists in the coming year, 2021? If yes, who?
