Amanda Black Shares Stunning Visuals for ‘Ndizele Wena’

Watch Amanda Black's new music video for 'Ndizele Wena.'

South African singer Amanda Black recently released visuals for her latest single "Ndizele Wena." The track is a love song in which she promises to stay with her lover through all the ups and down. She sings in the first verse:


"Sometimes it's push and pull/ But, I never wanna lose you, I don't want to/ Oh baby/ Ndithanda wena wedwa/ And though it's not always easy/ Just know I love you/ I really do/ Ndingowakho/ And all I want you to know"

The song was treated to a fitting visual directed by Joburg-based filmmaker Kuda Jemba. The clip shows performance scenes of the artist which intercut with a scene of a man and a woman who are thrilled by each other.

The visual is as minimalist as the song, which is built on a mellow piano. The video was filmed nin the vicinity of a waterfall, as if to represent the purity of love.

"Ndizele Wena" is a single from Amanda Black's latest album, Power which was released in 2019. The 18-track project was the musician's sophomore, a follow-up to 2016's Amazulu. Power is the first album Amanda released independently since leaving the label Ambitiouz Entertainment which released her debut.
