“Soulful, sincere, moody and lyrical,” – these are the words that Ami Faku uses to describe her style of music.
This fresh young artist has recently gone through a rapid evolution of success as her fan base has exploded, making her the ideal choice for the Apple Music New Artist Spotlight for October with her debut album Imali.
“I am beyond grateful and in disbelief. The support from Apple Music is priceless and I could never thank them enough. My supporters can expect beautiful music… I am myself all the time, so my music is very honest. I hope people can learn to be true to who they are because there’s so much beauty in that,” Ami explained to us.
In 2019 going from strength to strength she has since had five of her own tracks appear on the Top 100 RAMS Radio chart, namely: “Into Ingawe”, “Ungowam”, “Ubuhle Bakho”, “Ndikhethe Wena”, and “Love Drunk”.
The track “Into Ingawe” was produced in collaboration with Sun El Musician and remains one of the most listened to songs on SA radio, after reaching over one million streams within three weeks of its release. Ami has what it takes to achieve great success: charisma, honesty, song-writing precision and the voice of an earth-bound angel.
