Little did we know that we are recording another #InstantClassic following up on our other 2 SAMA Award winning singles Indlela Yam and Lengoma.’
And talking about the meaning of the the title and message behind the song:
‘Ndingubani’ is a song that best describes what alot odd human beings go through on life. Falling, learning, getting up, not giving up & coming back stronger.
It’s a conversation between the listener & God. With strings, percussions, marimba drums, piano sounds that instantly make it a classic. The song forces the listener to go to the mirror & get an opportunity to dig in deep in their soul & question themselves about who they really are. What purpose are they serving on earth. Its inspirational, deep, poetic, timeless & musical.
The single Engineered by DJ Phat pro, mixed by Robbie Malinga and Leon Donovan and Produced by DJ Sbu himself, Zahara and Rabs Vhafuwi.
So get ready for ‘Ndingubani’ releasing on 30th September, Here’s a sneak peak during a studi session
