Dancehall artist Beanca has made a return to the music limelight with the release of her latest single Nthawi Yanga, a duet with rapper Martse.
Like many other artists, Beanca said the Covid-19 pandemic stood in the way of her planned music projects as she was forced to put on hold some of her projects.
She said: “I have been quiet for some time as I concentrated on some personal projects. Some even thought that I had stopped doing music. This song is a reminder to all that Beanca is still here and this is my time.”
The artist said though she was out of the limelight, behind the scenes she was still working and developing her art, especially on audience management and how to sell her content.
In Nthawi Yanga, the artist has maintained her usual dancehall/reggae vibe which has been spiced up by Martse’s rap hook. She said she cherished the opportunity to hook up with the rapper whom she said helped lift the vibe of the song.
“He has always been an artist I have admired and wanted to feature in my songs. Though it was the first time to work with him, but the vibe that we created was really cool. It was really exciting to have him on board,” she said.
Though she has over 30 singles under her belt, the Lilongwe-based artist is yet to drop a full album. But her fans may not have to wait for long as Beanca said she is working on producing her maiden album.
She said: “It has always been my wish to have my own album. I am glad to announce that the process has already started. I can’t commit on the exact timeline but people will be updated as events unfold.”
Nthawi Yanga has been produced at Erill Studios.
