The Queens Fortress - Kuchicola

“Being a woman in this industry is impossible, it is either money or sex,” singer, songwriter Kuchicola opens the door into the adversity she has had to face as a woman in the entertainment industry where woman are constantly sexualized and expected to sacrifice their dignity and their bodies in order to prosper as entertainers.

The Queens Fortress transformed into a safe space when Nicola shared a tender part of her being with us. When she was faced with the pain of a miscarriage, poetry became her silver lining. The songwriter shared a poem by the late Tupac in studio, a poem that helped her mend herself.

From safe space to live stage, the singer sang a song off her latest project in studio. Some parts of the episode were heavy, but we played and we had a phenomenal time. Kuchi was also tasked with having to create a song in studio to a beat that she had never heard by fellow female producer, Sirius. She rose to the occasion and it was stunning.

The Queens Fortress: On Raising Boys

The Queens Fortress: On Raising Boys

This week’s episode of the Queens Fortress focuses on raising boys who women do not fear. Poet, writer, photographer and performer Clear, invites us into the world of raising a son in South Africa. Clear quotes the proverb “evil enters through the hole of a needle and spreads like an oak tree,” to describe how patriarchy grows in men and creates the violent and angry men we all have in our lives. He teaches his son Lethabo to cry, to vocalise his emotions and to combat the violence that grows with men not being true to their emotions.
