Portugal and Bolivia among big winners of World Travel Awards
Neyma began her career when she appeared on the Fantasia TV singing competition, in which she took in the second place. However, her breakthrough came when she was given a recording contract and in 1999 released her first album, Brigas. It featured the popular singles “Brigas”, “Mae virtude mais bela” and the well received single, “Praia feliz”, which won her much publicity. The success of the album Brigas led her to release Baila in 2000 and Renascer in 2001. But it was Arromba, released in 2005, that brought Neyma back into the spotlight as an acclaimed singer who was internationally recognized as a major singing sensation from Mozambique and the Lusophone world. In early 2010, she released her sixth album, entitled Neyma 10 Anos in acknowledgement of her 10 years in the Mozambican music industry.
