Speaking to Shout-Africa through her publicity manager  Last Maisiri,  the songstress Lorretta Nonsikelelo Ndebele said she is  working hard so that she can conquer the world and be an inspiration to many.

“I am working tirelessly to make sure that I become an internationally-acclaimed artiste who will wow the world and inspire a whole lot of people there,” she said.

The musician who is inspired by Whitney Houston also said she has a dream of building a dance school.

The Bulawayo-born versatile artiste says started her music career when she was in High School.

In 2016, she released her debut single entitled  ‘Standwa Sami’  under the moniker Lorretta McBae.

Last year, the budding artiste released three singles such as Wakanyanya,  Ndichakuratidza , Baddest and  a self-titled mixtape.

She has since re-branded herself to Lorretta Dasha Rain and says locally she is inspired by rising music sensation Ammara Brown.

“I love Ammara, she is my motivation although people tend to judge my voice as a competition,” added the songstress.

However, the journey has not been smooth sailing for the artiste who is under a local entertainment stable ‘Team Big Family’ as last year the   hip hop group she was leading crumbled.

“Last year Lorretta was leading a hip hop group called LBG which got several nominations from various music awards but the members went their separate ways,” confirmed the artiste’s publicity manager Last Musariri also known as DjLascriss.

This year,Lorretta teamed up with another budding male artiste Terry Potter Rain to form the duo ‘Rain Nation’.The duo will be releasing a debut album this year but Lorretta is going to drop a new single entitled ‘Nditarise Seunondidawo’.
