The latest release by South African singer and songwriter, Ami Faku is apt for the time the world is in.
Featuring award-winning rapper, Emtee, the song titled Lala Ngoxolo, meaning “rest in peace,” is the perfect soundtrack befitting of the mood of the world.
Remembering those lost with lyrics such as “Sobonana kweli linye ilizwe / we’ll see each other in a different world” and “Akusafani la ma ungekho / it’s not the same here without you”; Lala Ngoxolo is a poignant track that the world can find joy, peace and healing in, whilst paying homage to those that have fallen and passed on.
From tragic accidents, to sicknesses, to Covid-19 deaths; the world has suffered great loss in 2020 and Faku hopes her latest release will aid in the journey of overcoming loss in one’s life and bid farewell to those no longer living.
Having ended the year on a high note with her single Uwrongo making Time Magazine’s “10 Best Songs of 2020”, making Obama’s favourite music list and being the second most streamed female artist in the country; all eyes are on SA’s Female Artist Of The Year who is pegged to have yet another phenomenal year reaching audiences far and wide with her golden voice.
