She returns with her 2nd release of the year in collaboration with “Amandla” hitmaker, Aymos and T-Man SA. Together they infuse the soulful house sound with a touch of spiritual Amapiano, to deliver their single “iZenzo”.
The song is guided by two unique vocals which narrate a story of possibility and luck as any given day your life can change if you decide to commit to your dreams and act on them but if you do not act towards your dreams and passions, you might find yourself living an unfulfilling life, this could too touch on Love.
“iZenzo” which translates to ‘one’s actions or one’s doings’ is a well-produced single as it speaks to the soul in a manner where you are left feeling like the world’s not too big for your dreams and it is never too late to go after what you love and want as you only live once so do the most you can do at your utmost best.
