There are those moments when you need to feel the ecstasy of what it means to get back in this fight called, life! Every day can seem like a fight of our very lives. The frustrations. Injustice. Not fulfilling our aims. Falling short from our goals. Then, there are the addictions. Those emotional constraints and restrictions, which can knock you off balance. It can be lonely, frankly speaking. Yet, words of living wisdom permit a person to get back up, again! Lyrics of motivation gives the real deal about one’s failures, and points of defeat. Nevertheless, they force us to get back in the ring, and to get back up, again!

Clearly, we have not changed gears to another country, or setting. As it still stands, the nation of South Africa is still the theme. Such a nation has its own her/history of overcoming the difficulties for past pains suffering. Nevertheless, much was overcome. The stage of perseverance lives on! That’s for sure! You have those moments. And, you definitely have those times when you feel you cannot press on. The phrase, life is hard can be an understatement, when you are going through the actual struggle. Nevertheless, we push through anyhow. It’s the hard, which gives is that extra flavor. For, we can always look back and see all of the riches, we had gathered, along the way!

Whatever nation you are from, whatever culture you were birthed from, when you get that hype song, which revitalizes your Spirit (during the course of those trying times) treasure it and treasure it, fiercely! Those songs, which have the power to give you that upbeat for a moment in truth, are well worth every single component of wonder! They permit you the opportunity to see perseverance, and the fight, as a wonder of excitement! You already have the victory. You simply have to have the will to move through the fight! So, when you get an authentic, fight song, from your country, navigate through it and be mesmerized, by its existence!

If you have never heard the word, Indoda, you are about to find out the power of its energies. This particular, battle song is called, “Indoda.”

Ndoda uyincwaba namhlanje Kusasa iphinde ivuke Indoda ingahluleka namhlanje Kusasa iphinde ivuke

Kudala ngiyehla nginyuka Ngiwa ngivuka ngikguba Ngihlupha ngikhuzwa ngingezwa Ngizicabangela ngedwa Bengithanda ukuphuza kuzekube sekseni Bese vele ngikhomba esfeni Ngiphethe na bagani nami be fake Anyone can make a mistake Yingakho kunje Kungenxa yabelele basbekezele

Researching and studying the meanings, you sense the power of movement through those words. Add a funky, hip beat, and you experience the perfect majesty of having dwelled in a song of motivation, courage, and rebirth! You come to find a renewal in your tender heart of wellness. There is a pleasure in moving through different spaces of beauty and tenderness. You experience a wonderful landing for getting through that chaotic place. It streams beyond what a person could possible experience. Yes, it may be painful. However, when you have that extra fire to persevere through a difficult situation, there is nothing greater than feeling the light, through a difficult situation. There is nothing more rewarding than looking back on that period, being in a new atmosphere, and hearing that song, again! After all, it was a song for beauty, and a person finally gets the ability to move through the ugliness; into a more loving and holistic view!

So, when you have such singers, treasure them with all of your might. At the end of the day, they may not be given much time on this Earth, for us to enjoy them. When that special song is brought into performance, a grander healing is brought, alive! It feels surreal. Then again, those songs are needed for our every day reality.

For one South African singer a certain song was given in order to get that motivation for South Africans, who needed that boost. He was considered to greatly contributing to the musical genre of Kwaito; in addition to the Black American musical form of Hip Hop. 🎶 🎵 Born in Soweto, and making his final transition in Johannesburg, he truly created a unique presence in his craft. Sometimes, people don’t understand that sometimes uncommon things can, match. One should also understand just how serene, and beautiful, the very nature of moving through certain layers can be. Pain, struggle, and being in a difficult place, can permit a person to locate particular healing treasures, that no one thought possible. Nevertheless, they are found. They are found, and they are unique within their own, particular way. For a song entitled, “Indoda,” that magnificent, power tool of motivation and healing permits one to understand that level of navigating through the storm. For that time of overcoming, there is one South African name, which rings a bell. He was named, Mduduzi Edmund Tshabalala. Yet, his fans knew him as. . .
