Singer-songwriter Moonga K releases his brand new single black, free & beautiful and it has a powerful message behind it. The single was released on 2 July. 


The soulful artist explained that the title of the song is simply an affirmation that he would tell himself as something he aspires to be. He further mentioned that it’s a song he hopes all black people would resonate with as they listen to the song. 

“So much of my experience as an artist is becoming familiar with my history and the culture of people who look and live like me. Showing ALL of our community and its beauty, and its ugliness and trauma and magic, and how we deal with all of this”.
