Berita has had one hell of a year. This is as the SAMA-award-winning Afro-Soul artist went from one of the least headline-making artists to topping the trends chart week in and week out in these past few months. Primarily, this was all due to the breakdown in her marriage to the former music executive and now
entertainment commentator and podcast regular Nhlamulo “Nota” Baloyi

Nota since Berita confirmed her separation from the controversial figures has labelled her broke, talentless without him, and destitute. All claims that Berita has had to come out publicly to rubbish, all the while labelling Nota as a narcissist and emotionally abusive. Not to her directly, but due to his behaviour against women and the general public. 

However, as Berita has started to reclaim her independence as an artist and a newly single woman. It seems that she is ready to get back to her first love. 

Berita readies first single since Nota split

Taking to Twitter recently, Berita who has been booked and busy since dumping Nota has confirmed that she is ready to share the new music she has been working on. As such, she shared a lengthy tweet writing what this upcoming single means to her by sharing that: 

“Emerging out of a season that threatened to take all of me. Let it be known that I refuse to stay down too long. I can be changed by what happens to me but I refuse to be reduced by it.”

Following the tweet, she then shared a snippet of what the mood of the soulful mid-tempo Afro-Soul ballad is meant to give. She then used the caption of the video to confirm that the single she worked on with Abidoza and Alie Keyz is set to be titled Peace of Mind.  A title which is apt considering the past few months she has had with the media and the breakdown in her marriage. 

The single is set to be released on Friday, 31 March 2023. While it is purely assumption, we can assume it will be reflecting on her journey to recovery since splitting from Nota.

A split which Berita has already shined a light on when she described the day she left Nota. As reported
In an interview on Sol Phenduka and Dineo Ranaka’s popular radio show, Berita opened up about her marriage at length.
“The day I found out I was in an abusive relationship I quickly made plans. I remember I had bought continental pillows and I remember packing my stuff and I told him I was taking it back. At that moment I booked myself into a hotel room and I left as if I was coming back. I still came back, told him I was going to the studio and I never came back,” she told Kaya FM.

Berita also shared an incident that made her realise that the relationship wasn’t for her.
“It went from being that to a full-blown-out argument where he was shouting at the police. That’s when I knew that this was never going to be my life. I only started to see the signs after we got married.
“He was harassing me and everyone else around me and I had to even leave the country for 6 months. My dad didn’t want me to come back to Johannesburg. I told my dad that I had never experienced that type of rage in my life. I really was naive when I got into the relationship. I didn’t take the time to get to know him. At one point, I thought we shared the same type of values.”
