Ami Faku has never been afraid to dig deep and express emotion through her music so it comes as no surprise that her new single ‘Lala Ngoxolo’ with Emtee is another powerful piece of music from the local songstress.
Remembering those we’ve 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 country can find joy, peace and healing in, whilst paying homage to those that have fallen and passed on.
Meaning ‘Rest In Peace’, ‘Lala Ngoxolo’ honours those we have lost. From tragic accidents, GBV, to sicknesses, to covid-19 deaths; the country has suffered great loss in 2020 and Ami Faku hopes her latest release will aid in the journey of overcoming loss in one’s life as we bid farewell to those no longer with us.
