Lungi Naidoo releases her second music video from her COURAGE EP for her single Duro. The song is currently #1 on the 5FM Pop Top 10.
Duro is a particularly special song to Lungi, as she shares her personal experience of her journey through motherhood and her miscarriage. “Duro is about love. Love is its purest form,” says Lungi.
“I wrote this song for my baby Lusakhanya. I was pregnant when we wrote the song. The Duro music video speaks to my relationship with God and the one place I know I can go to when I am low and feel defeated. That is why we filmed the video in a church and at the ocean. – Lungi
The church represents healing and the ocean represents cleansing”. “I’ve always wanted to shoot a music video in a church and Duro has given me that opportunity. In my culture the ocean symbolizes power, strength, renewal and a connection with ancestors.
I needed the video to be a reflection of my life. Shooting the video was very emotional as I couldn’t sing the ‘Lusakhanya’ lyric given I was grieving the loss of our baby. I was sharing a piece of me that mattered the most.
I hope and pray that this music video and song will help other mothers going through what I have experienced.”
