“Cupid’s bow was crooked and found the wrong lover. That’s how it’s felt in some of my prior relationships. The song was inspired by having been loved by a woman or two who always knew the difficulties of dating an artist, never wanted to make that choice, yet we found ourselves in a spin of intoxicating love that always threatened to end. Nomisupasta is easily one of my favourite contemporary voices in Africa, and she smashed it on this one.” M.anifest
