Long-forgotten yesteryear Kwaito star Sku, real name Sikhululekile Mpofu (pictured), has broken her long sabbatical from the music industry, in gospel garb this time, with the release of her latest track titled S’busiso.

The 38-year-old crooner made waves at the turn of the millennium with secular hits Hamba Nobani — which featured her brother PoZee — and Owami.
The change from secular music came about following her baptism in the Seventh-Day Adventist church.
“This decision came after I received Jesus Christ and I got baptised in 2010. I have been working on my debut gospel album that will be released soon. All I want to do now is to work for the Lord and be a good mother and wife,” she said.
The Hamba Nobani hit maker has dedicated her latest song, which was produced by P2daoh, to God and his grace.
“S’busiso is a special dedication to God, all the pain, struggles and difficulties. I have seen His hand and He has reached a point where no other human being can get to in terms of His unconditional love, support, provision and, above all, the greatest miracle I have and that is the gift of life,” she said.
“I’m still standing today because of Him and S’busiso to me is a gift to Him for all He has done for me.
“His patience with me and sharing His awesomeness with everybody to try to make them see that when you hit rock-bottom, there is only one pair of hands that can really deliver and pull you out of the dark pit. That’s what S’busiso means to me.”
Sku and her younger brother PoZee are co-founders of Kas NoValo Records.
The musician has two albums titled Owami and Dlulile. She also released an inspirational gospel track titled Uthando Lwethu in 2010.
