The album opens with the title track “Isidalo” which serves as a reflection of the duos journey surfaced by humble beginnings and gratitude. The duo has infused diverse rudiments into every song including incredible collaborators with different approaches.

“Life is not easy” the colorful and rich “Emhlabeni” track which features Sjava, Shakes & Les, encourages one to be cheerful and forget about earthly things. Through its instrumental roots adorned with a mellow guitar and soothing Saxophone; the progressive percussion and classic vocals make this a masterpiece.
This project is love grounded which makes it perfect for its arrival now that we are in the month of love, “Ethembeni” with Mhaw and the flourishing vocals of Nkosazana Daughter & Lioness Ratang make this body of work sincere and substantial.
Freeing an immaculate “Ngithembe” soundtrack, the mission would be incomplete without the elegance of Omit ST, who graces the project more than once. Showing off their always incredible chemistry, the duo invited vocalist Dinky Kunene and Buhle Sax (who snatched hearts on “eWallet” with Mthunzi).
The work progresses with Aymos & Em-one also on “Balansas” (they voiced out some of the issues that most people face today which are trust, pride and ego, the top-notch groove drives the message in style.
The melodic Mhaw Key pulled through with the moody and compelling “Isibongo” with the marvellous Boohle, who’s ready to be taken by the significant other.
