Patience Musa's road to self-discovery

After going through disappointing relationships with friends and business partners, Zimbabwean jazz singer Patience Musa realized that in life you simply can’t completely trust everyone.

But instead of letting the situation get the best of her, she used her emotions to write her song ‘Amai Muka’, meaning Wake up woman in Shona. In this week's My Song, Musa explains that the song is about women discovering themselves.
 

My Song showcases the personal stories behind the songs of Africa’s most compelling musicians. You’ll hear these musicians in their own words. No presenter, no interviewer – nothing to get in the way. Just African voices on African music.
