South Africa’s Loyiso & Swaziland’s Sands Release a Heart-Melting Duet

Loyiso and Sands' IsiXhosa and SiSwati vocals blend well over a mellow piano key-heavy instrumental in "Ndimbonile."

For his latest single "Ndimbonile," South African veteran R&B singer Loyiso joined forces with Swazi soul singer Sands.

Sands has had a great 2017. His catchy and soulful single "Tigi" took Swaziland and South Africa by storm. His album Sands of Time went gold in South Africa–a first for a non-gospel Swazi artist.

The collaboration, titled "Ndimbonile," sees the two singers go back and forth, exchanging vocals about a special somebody who melts their hearts.

The song's minimal video, directed by Kyle White, was shot in an open desert-esque veld. Alongside the model who plays the special lady, it features musician and brother to Loyiso, Phelo Bala, who plays the piano.

"Ndimbonile" will be that song you play after a long night of doing the vosho to Distruction Boys, this festive season.
