South African artist Lira speaks about 'Girlfriends' Soundtrack


Sultry jazz singer Lira was puzzled when she was given the cold shoulder last Friday night in the SABC1 promo announcing the new season of the Girlfriends series.

The promo in question goes on to mention Angie Stone, India Arie, Chaka Khan, Jill Scott, Erikah Badu, Corinne Bailey Rae, Mary J. Blige, Persia White, Dre, Algebra, Estelle and Amy Winehouse, on the Girlfriends soundtrack.

Yet it ignores Lira, the only local girl among the international stars.

Simone Berger, head of the SABC promo division, says she is unaware of the oversight.

“If Lira is on the soundtrack and there is no mention of that I agree that she would have been surprised,” Berger says, promising to take it up. “I appreciate your bringing this to my attention.”

Lira says: “I saw the promo but didn’t know who to ask what the issue was. Some things are worth fighting for.

“Whatever the situation, the song is on the soundtrack and is about to make the international soundtrack. I should have been celebrated but it really takes nothing from me.”
