Few weeks ago we presented you Daphne’s first EP, « Reflection », a collection of four distinctly unique tracks that explore the themes of Love, heartbreak, forgiveness, believe and hope.
Daphne is currently on the « Made of Black » urban tour, she just performed at the last « MTN iFest » show. Her next show is the MTN « Mobile Money » tour on the UB campus on the 12th of December 2014. Her first single « Rastafari« is currently on Trace TV; Urban Top 15 , Africa Top 11 and tagged a « Smash Hit ».
Let’s explore her songs through the lyric videos…
“Reflection is about love redeemed…it’s about forgiveness and allowing love to come back to you,” said Daphne. The song tells the story of a lover who is around when things are good and goes away when “things dem bad…” But the best part of the song is when Daphne asks her runaway lover to “come right away, bring all your pain along let’s burn it down …”
The theme of love continues on “Broken”, a song about a girl who’s been hurt and left broken-hearted. “This song is a chapter in everyone’s love book,” says Daphne. “Especially for girls…(she laughs)…you want to love again but you are so scared…’cause you are broken”.
Her third single seems to be a solution for the first two. After being jilted on “Reflection” and left “Broken”, Daphne turns to the “food of the soul…the reason why we laugh, the reason why we cry, the reason why we smile, the reason why we live” – Ndolo (Love). She personifies love as God. “God is so beautiful, and will always be the pillar of my being,” says Daphne. “I turn to God for everything” she continues.
