Lindz, full name Lindelwa Pearl Dlamini, started off at Khanyisile Primary School and has been miraculously performing well at school since then.


Gcwala was drawn to this beauty and we had a chit chat with her on her music career in depth.
“My dream is to pursue a Masters Degree now,” says the beauty. Lindz has all the motivation in acquiring more qualifications but she is also a slay queen who is miraculously talented. She has it all!
“I then moved onto study a double major in communications and media and management in South Africa for my tertiary education and graduated with a degree in April. Currently I have completed my Honours Degree in communications and media which I will be graduating for next year April, and I have dreams to pursue a Masters Degree as well,” said the beauty.
She believes that education is fundamental in life; even to artists as well.

ON MUSIC CAREER…
I started singing when I was four years old. Brenda Fassie was my inspiration as she was a music icon during that time, and I saw this from my parents who constantly played her music in the house and watched her videos. I then started singing and imitating her. When she came to perform in Swaziland, my aunt took me to go and watch her and I met her backstage because I was such a big fan and she took a liking to me.
From then on, I started performing at weddings, funerals and parties. I performed at talent shows both in Swaziland and South Africa. I even performed at the State Theatre in Pretoria. I also recently competed in the MTN BushFire Firefly in May, where I won a spot to perform at BushFire end of May. Since then, I have been doing quite a lot and have been busy with many shows.
I performed at the Epic Gig which was in July and it was hosted by Toxik Entertainment. I have shared the stage with Kwesta on his three-day birthday bash in August and on the same month; I performed alongside Buffalo Soulja in his show.
I also have plenty upcoming events such as; the Umshubelo Music Festival in December which will feature AKA, Kwesta and many other big names. Although I am pursuing my music career, my education still comes first at all times.

FIRST TIME IN THE STUDIO
The first time I ever walked into a studio, I was 17 years old. I was just amazed by all the equipment and the process. I was really excited, not intimidated at all, and from that every moment it felt like a second home to me because that’s where I could be myself. I am a pop singer at heart, so that is the type of music I produce. However, I alternate between pop, RnB and dance. I am versatile, but pop is my main thing. What inspires it is how it makes me feel. I am drawn more to it than any other genre because I feel it is where I best express myself and have fun.

WORKS DONE…
In 2015 I released my very first single called ‘Fireball’, and in 2016 I did a song with Tyrone Reid, who is also known as Mr 505, called ‘Love is Exhausted’. Currently I have been working on many tracks that will be released next year but the latest is ‘Wild and Free’. ‘Wild and Free’ is my favourite track among my list because it is a fresh sound, very upbeat and exciting. The message in it also means something to me and I feel that people will be able to relate, especially the ladies out there.

COLLABORATIONS
I have been in studio with Buffalo Souljah, TLT, Makwa Beats (Kwesta’s producer) and Micky M collaborating on tracks, so expect fire next year. I also worked with Alex Hatzinikolaou and William Brown from Semitone Records based in Manzini and they produced my new single ‘Wild and Free’.

ON THE FUTURE…
In future I see myself being a highly successful businesswoman, as well as a global pop sensation, representing my country Swaziland all over the world and sharing my gift of music. Dream, pray and believe...Also to work hard because dreams don’t work unless you do. Never give up and always be no one else but yourself!
