Joda Kgosi

Joda Kgosi delivers her tranquillising tone with a dark and ominous track that captivates listeners. Her versatility allows her to swing from singing to rapping in the matter of just a few bars on her latest release «Don't Leave Me».

«Don’t Leave Me» is a bit of toxic jam, where someone is begging their partner not to leave them even though they may have done something hurtful. As she delivers the line «I’ll wait for you to heal in the relationship», it shows that she is willing to do any and everything to make it work, even if it means going through the difficulty of building their trust from the ground up. It’s a true and meaningful demand that she is requesting of her lover. Sometimes it’s easy to simply give up however some people deserve a second chance.

The track was produced by her close friend and frequent collaborator NOTBENJAMIN. «Don’t Leave Me» me is a vibrant R&B/Soul record that includes a feature from Hip-Hop artist Tyson Sybateli. This follows Joda’s performance at the 2022 SAMA Awards where her debut EP «Sour Milk» was nominated for Best R&B Album.

Joda Kgosi, who hails from the rape capital of the world, and is a strong women’s rights activist grapples with PCOS; a condition that affects 4-20% of women population in the world, has loved music even before she could speak; music runs in her blood. Since high school, she has been winning bountiful music awards, setting her on a strong path to greatness.

Joda Kgosi is in her second year studying Publishing at the prestigious Pretoria University, enjoys creating new food recipes, and dreams of owning a lipgloss line someday. Every holiday, she volunteers to teach children at church.
