Bucie

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life

 

Voices that captivate you in house music are a rare gem. From the days of Naked Music voices have been something I’ve loved about House Music. Lisa Shaw, Jaidene Veda and a handful of other soulful goddesses grace some of my favourite tunes. Bucie is one of those names, her most famous track being Black Coffee’s ‘Superman’ a track that captivates and warms the soul. But who is the woman behind the voice?

 

Bucie (Busisiwe Nolubabalo Nqwiliso) was born in in 1987 in Kimberley, South Africa and grew up in Klerksdorp where she led the choir at her parents' church.

 

In 2007 while she was enrolled at the Central Johannesburg College, the music lecturer, Thandukwazi "Demor" Sikhosana recruited Nqwiliso to his newly formed label Demor Music.

 

Demor Sikhosana wrote, produced and released her first local hit Song 'Ngicelindoda' taken from a Demor produced full-length album rockstar in 2007. Demor orchestrated her collaboration with Black Coffee in the hit single "Turn Me On" which was released and licensed to German label Gogo Music in 2007 with remixes by renowned producers like Ralf Gum which became the No.1 single on Traxsource.

 

In 2009 she collaborated with Black Coffee on the hit single Superman. Later in 2017 Drake sampled the song on Get it together, featuring Dj Black Coffee and Jorja Smith. 2010 saw Demor Music collaborating with Soulistic music once more as Bucie and Black Coffee brought their magic again with their smash world wide hit Superman which topped the charts, and earned the duo award nominations such as SAMA, MTV BASE, METRO and 2011 Winter Music Conference Awards (Miami).

 

She’s had five studio albums to date, the latest ‘Rebirth’ in 2018, and recorded with the likes of Atjazz, Jullian Gomes, Louie Vega and Ralf Gum - making it clear her voice is one of a kind.
