Burundi’s first lady Denise Nkurunziza seems to be a perfect lyricist after releasing her debut song which will stand as one of the best releases this year.
The song titled Umukenyezi Arengeye Kuvyara Gusa (A Woman is More than Just Giving Birth), urges men in her country to desist from abusing women when couples fail to get pregnant.
The four-minute song and video shared on social media shows the first lady playing the role of a counselor to a man who is shown physically and verbally abusing his wife for failing to bear him a child.
“Women are not created just to be called mothers. They are capable of much more,” Denise sings in the chorus.
She also stresses in the song that infertility affects both men and women and that only through a medical examination can the truth about one’s fertility or lack thereof be established.
“Fertility involves two people and infertility should not be a source of conflict,” she sings.
Pierre and Denise have five children together and have adopted several others and frequently preach together as Denise is an ordained pastor and has been featured on several religious tracks.
The Burundian first lady has won praise from many on social media for the message in her music video, though even as some were quick to point out that men too face abuse from their spouses.
We’ll just leave it up to you to listen to the song and let us know if you feel it !
