Ami Faku & Emtee remember those we’ve lost with new single, “Lala Ngoxolo”

After the year we’ve had, Ami Faku’s latest release featuring award-winning rapper, Emtee, is particularly apt.

Titled Lala Ngoxolo, meaning “rest in peace”, Eastern Cape’s South African Voice of Modern Afro Soul has yet again created the perfect soundtrack befitting of the country’s mood as she did with her Platinum-selling single, Imali, taken off her Gold-selling debut album with the same name.

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.

From tragic accidents, 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.
