Ami Faku

Eastern Cape’s rising star, Ami Faku, Ndikhethe Wena is ending the year off on a high note with her third feature on a single in the space of four weeks.

Following the release of DJ Qness’ Babuyile ft Ami Faku & NaakMusiQ and The Kiffness’ Lose You ft Ami Faku; Ami Faku now features on DJ Mogul SA’s new single Ungowam.

The coming together of Ungowam was by serendipity. De Mogul SA happened to hear Ami Faku’s Ndikhethe Wena on radio and knew he had to have her on his next single. He then went on to search for her on social media and sent her a DM asking for her details so that he can send her a beat. Ami Faku immediately fell in love with the beat and sent it to her manager who then booked a studio session for her and De Mugul SA that same night. Ungowam was recorded the same day that De Mogul SA first heard Ami Faku’s voice on radio.

“The whole process of having to work together on a song, Ami Faku and I, I got to say, it was meant to be. I had the beat for quite some time, but when I heard her latest single Ndikhethe Wena play on radio, I definitely knew she was the one to work with. She is such an AMAZING songwriter. The experience was super amazing. I mean her energy in the studio and the creative side of it… she is such a talent. Ungowam is a song filled with emotions and by far the future sound. We can’t wait to share it with the world,” expresses De Mogul SA.

“It’s a privilege to work with Universal Music and Dj Ganyani Entertainment to release this special song by De Mogul SA featuring Ami Faku. Ami Faku’s voice is a spiritual calling and the music by De Mogul SA compliments this very special and exciting new Afro House sound. The song is set to begin the December Season and do damage in 2019. It’s designed to be a classic song for decades to come,” shares Raphael Benza of Vth Season.

Ami Faku stays true to her messaging about love with Ungowam and shares: “Ungowam is about regaining strength and giving love one more try.”

Vth Season’s newest signee has made an impress mark in the music industry this year in the space of just four months. Ami Faku has been earmarked to be one of the most important voices to come out of South Africa in the twenty-tens, and the likes of Entertainment Editor, Lesley Mofokeng, forecasts her to reach the iconic status of the likes of Sade, Tracy Chapman, Aretha Franklin and Brenda Fassie just to name a few.

Cassper Nyovest attributes #FillUpMosesMabhida success to fans

Cassper Nyovest #FillUpMosesMabhida

Following an extremely challenging period of organising #FillUpMosesMabhida, Cassper Nyovest’s annual Fill Up concert took place this past weekend at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban and was a huge success due to the fans that came out to support the multi award-winning musician.

Cassper Nyovest took it back to ekasi with a magnificent authentic South African production at #FillUpMosesMabhida but the real highlight was the electrifying atmosphere at the stadium where fans sang and danced to every song during Cassper Nyovest’s set and exuded such positive energy. Cassper Nyovest can’t thank his fans enough for making his fourth annual Fill Up concert a success.

Other important contributors to the success of #FillUpMosesMabhida were the sponsors that came on board and stuck with Cassper Nyovest throughout the numerous rumours that riddled the concert and chased other sponsors away: from false claims of allocated funds to the concert to rumours about the concert being shut down.

Cassper Twitter

Cassper Nyovest would like to thank Ciroc for jumping on board from the get-go and their constant support and belief in him. He would also like to thank SABC 1, Ukhozi FM and Castle Lite for supporting #FillUpMosesMabhida, and extends appreciation for the free stadium usage offered by Durban Tourism.

Her early childhood

She always knew that music was her calling, have loved to sing all her life. Growing up in a musical family, her Granddad being a composer, songwriter and conductor for choral choirs influenced her love for music at an early age.

Life was good for her as a child, she enjoyed putting on shows at home singing along to her favourite artists, but I always had a yearning of being like Brenda Fassie someone who would sing for the love of singing.
We all have life-changing moments and mine came in the form of a tragic train accident where she was travelling with her 3 sister-cousins and grandmother to Johannesburg. At the tender age of 10 she had to listen to her cousins suffer in agony of the train that had de-railed.

Her sister-cousins did not make it and the aftermath of this event (to this day) is like dealing with the aftermath of a Tsunami. 3 children gone and she survived. The emotional guilt that she has carried over the years has been a heavy one. Music went from being a love to being a form of escaping her reality. Life is not easy, the obstacle that we face at times seem virtually impossible to overcome. But in those words, lies the secret to making any dream happen – “It is Possible”.
