She adds that, the first song on the album, Too busy for me, is related to western music. “On this song, I have catered for my Namibian people, as well as international listeners,” she says. The album is inspirational and portrays love and positive energy; it can help you get through a bad situation that you may be in when listening to it. We all need love, singing about current happenings like gender-based violence in Namibia. “Even though someone upset you, it does not give you the right to take their lives or to treat them badly, and even though someone out there is homeless or is an orphan, that does not stop anyone from loving them and sheltering them with love, and being there for them as a sister and brothers,” says Floritha about the message in this song.
“The song is telling people that we all need love and we need it abundantly,” adds Floritha.
