‘Sponono’ is an ode to love, an unashamed expression of love and appreciation by a man in love. The term itself is a Sotho term, used to refer to the utmost beauty of a black woman, praising her beauty and affirming her. Living up to its authentic expression, Supa Mega’s verse is dedicated to his partner, Nadia Nakai, proclaiming that “this is real love, it’s ride or die… perfect combination, suit and tie, angel, halo see you in my dreams in porcelain white”. He further goes on to state how she was God-sent and was his anchor and sense of peace during stormy seasons.
‘Sponono’ was produced by reputable producers 031 CHOPPA, Xivonaki Manzini as well as Tshupo Khutsoane who have worked with the likes of Sjava, Costa Titch, Phila Dlozi, Prince Kaybee & JR.
