On Friday, SABC1’s hit music show, Live Amp, hosted the exclusive world premiere of the first video from Driemanskap’s long-awaited second album, ‘Hlala Nam’.
‘Izulu Lelam’ is an epic track with production by Mo Fire Music producer, Khosh, featuring traditional South African choral vocals on the hook and vivid, heart-wrenching lyrics by Driemanskap.
‘Izulu Lelam’, which, translated from isiXhosa, means ‘heaven is mine’, is a song of hope dedicated to anyone going through tough times in life. The message of the song is that one day everyone will be free from the chains of hardship because heaven is a place that doesn’t discriminate between rich or poor, black or white.
The video was directed by Ari Kruger from Sketchbook Studios and features Vincent Ntunja as the wounded warrior. Check out the video, download the track and hit us up in the comments to let us know what you think…
