Noma Khumalo certainly ended 2016 on high note – winning the 12th season of IDOLS SA and releasing her debut album ‘Joy’ just a few weeks after.
She kicks off 2017 with her brand new second single ‘Moving On’ taken from her debut album, collaborating with one of SA’s top producers Sketchy Bongo. The prolific hit maker is no stranger to the radio airwaves with a string of hits and platinum singles under his belt, as a producer or part of the Durban movement, the Wolf Pack, a creative collective also consisting of Kyle Deutsch, Shekhinah and Aewon Wolf.
‘Moving On’ is the second single from Noma’s debut album and follows her Idols SA winning single ‘Want It To Feel Like It Did With You’ which was a Top 20 download on iTunes – watch the official music video here:
The single is released to all radio this week and has already been playlisted on 5FM after its debut on The Thando Thabooty Show. It was also on this radio show during an interview with Noma right after her Idols SA win that the Sketchy Bongo collab came about.
A big nod for Noma as Sketchy Bongo has had multiple chart-topping hits under the belt with Kyle Deutsch & Shekhinah’s ‘Back To The Beach’ which is still one of the hottest holiday or Summer singles, Kyle Deutsch and Aewonwolf’s ‘Wild Side’, Shekhinah’s ‘Let You Know’, Locnville’s ‘Cold Shouder’, and the single with Jimmy Nevis ‘All About It, to name but a few.
Sketchy Bongo comments, “Noma was great to work with. I heard her on idols and tweeted no matter whether she wins or not, I definitely want to work with her. Then she won and was on a radio interview and she said she wanted to work with me and I tweeted at the station and made it happen with her label, Gallo. Working with her was easy and her vocal is amazing. Kyle Deutsch came to the studio and helped write some lyrics and we laid down something great and timeless.”
Noma’s debut album ‘Joy’ is available now in music stores and major retail chains like Musica and CNA nationwide – https://www.cna.co.za/noma-khumalo-joy-idols-2016.html
