Ami Faku has teamed up with award-winning rapper Emtee on a new track titled Lala Ngoxolo.

The soulful song pays tribute to the difficult times faced in the past year and the people we have lost along the way.

"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," a press statement explains. 

"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," it goes on to say. 

"I hope this tune brings you comfort and puts your heart at ease," Ami said about the track on Instagram.
