Dance DJ and Producer SayFar shares delicate new single iTheku featuring Aubrey Qwana & HLE and announces debut EP pre-order
Soweto born house DJ and producer on the rise, SayFar has released his brand new single featuring gold selling Afropop superstar Aubrey Qwana, and gospel powerhouse Hle on a track titled iTheku – short for Ethekwini, the city known as Durban. The new single comes with a pre-order for SayFar’s debut EP Rhandzu with guest features Mnqobi Yazo, Rethabile Khumalo and IDA.
The beautiful and infectious iTheku features Aubrey Qwana’s usual lyrical vulnerability and clear vocals over a simple backing guitar melody.
The song is a cry from a man whose lover has been swallowed up by the big city. “Aubrey would probably explain it better than I do, but we have all seen it happen especially after high school” SayFar laughs as he breaks down the song.
“He’s crying that the big city, Durban, did him wrong and took his lover from him. She’s now crazy about money and all the dreams they had together are now a myth”, he continues.
Gospel singer HLE, who has just announced a TV gig on Mzansi Magic called “VIP Invite”, supplies the well blended smooth harmonies that opens up a whole new world of texture and colour to the song.
iTheku is a follow up to the recently released Mnqobi Yazo assisted “Amathafa”. The song was picked up by Apple Music as one of the big 5 songs featured on Africa Now; and was featured on New York’s finest radio host Nadeska’s show in the same week. The two songs make part of the EP which is now available for pre-order. You can pre-add/pre-save and pre-order the Rhandzu here.
