LOCAL songstress Ruusa Ndapewa Munalye, popularly known as Blossom, has broken her silence about her love affair with an unnamed mystery man, who she met in China.
Blossom, who returned from visiting the Asian nation last week, said she had met and fallen in love with a man of African descent, during her two-month stay.
She also hinted that wedding bells could be chiming soon, but preferred to keep the identity of her suitor to herself – for now.
In an interview with Confidente this week Blossom was all giggles, as she spoke about her mystery man.
“My love life has been very exciting. Very soon, there will be a Mr Blossom; very, very soon. We met in China and he is African. He is very supportive, tall and handsome; just the way I love my man – of course, with an accent too. We are still bonding, so no big-date talks yet, but we will definitely do lots of travelling together soon,” she said.
Blossom said that she had visited China to “explore, be inspired and simply experience a different type of music”, but had ended up having her heart stolen.
“He is a businessman based in China, so I will be joining him in doing retail together, for markets back home. We support each other and are growing in business together.”
Blossom stressed that although her man frowns upon her doing sexy photoshoots, and even spending too much time in the studio, she always reminds him that she is an artist first.
“I will be in Beijing and Guangzhou later in May, where I will be performing my new songs, under a Chinese agency. I am very excited about the future, and right now, I am happy to be home. “I cannot really say much about my boyfriend right now. But very soon everybody will know about him,” Blossom said, before attempting to steer the conversation away from the topic, to her recent visit to China and her upcoming projects.
She said that she had been inspired to explore the fashion market, during her visit to China, and is contemplating the development of an exclusive clothing line. Blossom, who is a former Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) Female Artist of the Year, a title she won in 2013, added that she has penned a song titled Andora, which deals with the challenges of life, the reality of living and accepting the unchangeable.
“It has a really ethnic feel to it. It is a beautiful song. I do not rush into music. I want to do music the same way I started, by giving it my heart and soul. It must be classical and should be enjoyed by the people.”
Blossom has in the past captivated her fans with her tracks like Komuthima Gwomeya, Tilila and Ondjila Yetu.
She said she is also working on a rendition of The Lord’s Prayer, which she will release under the title Tate Yetu or Our Father. She noted that Tate Yetu is strongly inspired by her childhood memories, just like Komuthima Gwomeya.
Since returning to Namibia, Blossom has performed at the Telecom Intercontinental Games in Windhoek
“I have a couple of shows coming up and weddings. I am very excited about these,” she added.
