Founded in 2020 at the height of the pandemic, Thee Suka is hailed as the fastest growing duo in the music industry. Over the years, they have individually developed their careers under the stage names SucreSoul and Kadjila. Through their music, Thee Suka seeks to see the world happy again after all it has been through and continues to face.
Recently, the duo joined the Sony Music family, and when asked what they thought of the signing, the pair said: “We are excited to join the family and release our latest offering under the Sony Music Entertainment roster.”
‘Aluwawa’ follows the successful release of the duo’s previous song ‘Mano Mano’.
Speaking about ‘Aluwawa’ and the meaning behind the song, the duo said: “Having experienced challenging times during the COVID-19 pandemic and South African unrest, ‘Aluwawa’ made sense as a request for divine intervention from God; listen to our prayers oh Lord to infinity and beyond.”
‘Aluwawa’ is a song of hope and healing that aims to raise people’s spirits.
“The lyrical content is that of what we have been taught by our parents to never forget to pray in good or bad times. We found solace in praying for the entire nation and ‘Aluwawa’ gave us more hope and faith that things will eventually be alright.”
In describing the intricate production of the song, they said: “The prayer is accentuated through gingery, nostalgic, Afro-sounds curated for the dance floor and immaculately disseminated chords with a rhythm from choiring ballads of men from the village. ‘Aluwawa’ draws emotions with its kinetic bouncy aura that is equally integral for the dance floor.”
