Moneoa Reveals Reasons That Led To A Two-year Break From Music

Moneoa says fame just got too much for her

Moneoa Reveals Reasons That Led To A Two-year Break From Music. Afro Pop songtress Moneoa who just dropped her 2nd album Ziph’Inkomo has opened up about the struggles she encountered at the height of her career which led to a two year break.

“I got a lot of fame at the very beginning of my career. I needed time off because fame has a way of just consuming you. I didn’t like the person I was turning into. I had a lot of confusing experiences and I started constantly battling with myself. So I decided to just give myself some time away.”


“I needed to learn how to be myself, completely me, in this (entertainment) world. How to protect myself mentally, emotionally, spiritually and financially.


“I struggled because I felt I was being treated like more than I was. I just felt like a lot of the relationships I had with people were based on who I was in the industry as opposed to who I am as a person. I’ve live a very humble life, in fact I grew up struggling and I’ve always been accustomed to this very humble and normal lifestyle. Then I was thrown into this world where there’s all this praise coming my way plus pressure and expectations.”


Moneoa shared that she’s a better woman after the break and an even greater artist.
