FREE MP3: isiZulu Love Song 'Uthando Lwakho' Available for Download NOW

The song Uthando Lwakho was written by myself in the latter part of 2014, I had assistance from close friends with pronunciation. I was inspired to write this song for my friend Toya D who lost her mother when she was young, she wrote a song for her mother which allowed me a chance to really grieve some of the losses I've experienced in my life. 

This song was also one of the main thematic pieces in "7 inch Stilettos" by Thabiso Radebe and played a role in generating emotion during the show when his mother passes away. 

The song speaks of broken love, love that cannot be.

This is the Feedback that i have had from the initial hearing:

Thabiso Radebe
Actor | Director | Playwright
" This song is very emotional. I feel that it draws so much depth, and touches ones emotions, it talks about the love that each one of us wants to experience. That love which lasts forever... but at the same time it questions whether that love could exist... It is an amazing song and I'd rate it '5 out of 5' since it's a unique Zulu love song, amazing Sandy."
Star rating: 5 out of 5
