Award-winning Afro-soul vocalist Vusi Nova has released Nomathemba, a song that boasts more than 800 contributors. Part of the proceeds from the song – described as an anthem of hope – will go to the Muthaland Relief Fund.

The As’Phelelanga hitmaker sent out a call and got a large group of people to appear on the song, which is aimed at healing our ailing world. Unlike the collaborative 1980s hit We are the World, featuring 45 famous artists, Nova put out a call to his fans to participate.
