Nomfundo Moh is back with a bang and this time she brings along South African musician Ami Faku and AmaPiano vocalist Sha Sha. The trio got together to record a love song that tells the story of a lady longing for her lover. The song was released on 8 October and it’s already becoming a national anthem.
The collaboration with Ami Faku and Sha Sha came as a surprise for Nomfundo Moh.
“It was a surprise collabo. My team knew I looked up to Ami and Sha Sha. They tried to reach out to some of my faves in the industry. Fortunately enough they managed to get Ami and Sha. They sent them my beat, which already had my hook and verse. They liked it so they were eager to jump on the song. It was more like a birthday gift for me.”
Nomfundo Moh has released visuals to Phakade Lami directed by Slow Man.
“The video is like a dream. Ngiphupha ngephakadhe lami. I am trying to reach him but he is far, I long for him to be back. As you witness in the video, there is no scene of me with him.”
Nomfundo is an intentional artist. She has grown in such a short space of time. She knows what she wants and is going at a gradual pace to get it.
“I started writing at an early age. As I kept on writing, I kept growing from that. I have learnt to use my imagination more than anything and to observe how we are living. The lockdown made me write more.
Working with Sha Sha and Ami has made me grow more and realise that if these big artists have so much faith in me, and can work with me, then that means they see something in me. So, I should be proud of myself, a stamp of approval.”
Nomfundo is working on her debut album. She had intended to release the album this year, but she is gearing up for her final year in BSc Social Work. The album called Amagama will now be released on January 28, 2022, and will be available on all digital platforms.
South African artists are noticing. De Mthuda featured Nomfundo Moh alongside Sipho Magudulela on his latest album, The Landlord. The track is titled Inkomo Zam.
