Rapper Jovislash has released a tribute song for the late Dumi Masilela titled Hamba Nhliziyo. This comes after the Rhythm City actor lost his life earlier this week from an alleged car hijacking.
The song, titled Hamba Nlhiziyo samples a guitar that was played by Dumi. It was released by Thumaka Music, an Independent record label that Dumi Masilela published his music under.
“I have met Dumi Masilela back in 2012 and I’ve always wanted to work with him, but it was only last year when he was re-introduced to me by DJ Zai Maya of YFM. We didn’t hesitate on hitting the studio to work on his music and he released a single titled Shona Phansi” said Jovislash.
Jovislash bares his soul on this song and with that said, it is a far cry from the parody songs he has become known for. Hamba Nhliziyo is such a touching tribute and Jovislash recounts the first time he met Dumi and how they started working together. “I hope the song serves as a comfort to his family, friends and fans” Jovislash said.
Hamba Nhliziyo is available for free download.
