The BBC World Service had a talent search in 2008 called “The Next Big Thing” in which they named Tshila as one of the 20 best unsigned artists in the world. Her music was complimented by a BBC critic as being “a perfect soundtrack to nice summer day” and “delightful”. Saying her song “Namboozo” and said “the mix of traditional African sounds with poetry and hip-hop works perfectly for Tshila” and “overall a conscious, upbeat vibe and the most original song in the competition”. Tshila is a socially conscious musician who emotionally expresses the depth of the content that she sings about.
