“MHBOX SINGLE OF THE WEEK: Africa’s empowering and stunning ‘Nomina’ sends an irresistible, strong, heavenly, melodic beat driven message to ‘Fetish Daddy” – Musichitbox MHBOX UK
Let’s face it – we all love music that tells a story, but at the same time sounds really great. Whether it’s a smooth-flowing love song, a growing up story or indeed, a heavier subject, it fills you with the most incredible feeling, when told right.
One such song is Nomina’s brand new single “Fetish Daddy”, a mesmerizing track that almost forces you to sit still and pay attention. Zimbabwe-born and now residing in Germany, Nomina is the ambassador for the “United Nation World Peace Berlin”, and as such, she’s a young woman on a mission.
“Fetish Daddy” has remarkably upbeat vibes and an easy-flowing melody, almost deceivingly so, for in truth, it deals with one of the most serious and upsetting issue of our world – that of sexual abuse, something that millions of girls face today. The music video, in particular, illustrates this really well. It tells the story of a man who objectifies the women around them, treating them as little more than sexual playthings. It also tells the story of a young woman, presumably his lover, who gets tired of his sexist attitude and breaks free from him, understanding her own worth.
With its’ catchy, easy rhythm, “Fetish Daddy” is a most empowering tune. It guides listeners towards peace and breaking free, while at the same time bringing joy to their souls. What I love about this, both the song and the accompanying video, is that it’s obvious they are born out of great passion and desire to make something beautiful, but also meaningful, perhaps to help someone who is in a bad place right now.
To me, that’s equally important in the making of a great artist, not just talent. And it seems Nomina has it all – looks, a smooth, mesmerizing voice, ample talent, as well as great vision and a good heart.
But then, Nomina was never one for ‘easy’ pop songs. Having finished a business studies degree, she turned her attention towards her true passion – music, and conquered the hearts of millions of listeners with hits like “Mamaland” and “Don’t Cry Africa”.
And now, she’s putting the finishing touches on her debut album, which I must say I definitely look forward to, as this young woman has great potential in the music business, in my opinion.
