"Living in the suburbs, people are so focused on chasing money that they don't [even] greet or talk to neighbours ..."
So involved in her music is Lady X that she conceptualised and sourced the location of the video.
"It was a lot of hard work. I wanted to tell a South African love story. I kept saying, 'whatever happens here, this is real'. I styled the whole video, each and every element.
"It's easy when the partner in the video is your real-life partner who also co-directed the video," she says, referring to her model and stylist boyfriend Nkosi Ngcobo.
Her album is produced by master hitmaker Mojalefa Mjakes Thebe. "I couldn't believe it when he offered, I was nervous and anxious.
"Going into the studio with five live session musicians was scary, but we killed it."
She plans to release the second single, Mama Ndiyabulela, around June, and she will again conceptualise the video.
"If I don't control what I put out there, and it's not me, what are the people to believe? So, it's going to be authentic soulful music we can relate to."
Lady X conquered her fears with the support and love of her mother, boyfriend and friends who told her: "Whatever you set your mind to, you can do it".
"Fear is part of the journey to success, embrace the anxiety and just do it. Doing house had too much drama and was not a good space. I felt trapped and I wasn't giving it my absolute all and honesty.
"There was too much darkness. Now I feel lighter and see my truth. I have attained the light and I am goal-orientated."
