    Bongeziwe Mabandla wins his first-ever Metro FM award and announces global tour

    It is still a refreshing time of many firsts for South African multi-award-winning singer-songwriter, Bongeziwe Mabandla, who continues to ascend to new avenues of critical acclaim within the musical landscape.

    His folklore dedication to lost love AmaXesha stole the spotlight as it won a coveted Metro FM award for The Best African Pop category, having competed against the likes of Inkabi Zezwe, Lwa Ndlunkulu, Nomfundo Moh and Zonke.

    The successor to his critically acclaimed album iimini, amaXesha explores the complex nature of relationships on the backdrop of a rich palette of Afro-folk, electronic music, contemporary soul, and soft teenage rock.

    Thematically, Bongeziwe wrestles with power dynamics, unrequited feelings, closure, comfort, and the daunting process of letting go. One of amaXesha’s captivating lead singles, “sisahlaleleni”, is enjoying a diverse remix palette.
     
    The first is an amapiano remix by eclectic producer, Ntokzin, followed by a Henrik Schwarz Techno House/EDM/Dubstep remix. Both remixes form part of an ongoing instalment of reimagined songs aimed at broadening the creative lens and narrative sonic experience of one of the most invigorating records on the now award-winning musical masterpiece.
