Now Deekay wants to take on the music industry as the next biggest Afro-soul vocal contributor in South Africa. Her debut single “Ngithanda Wena”, released on 22 May 2019 gave us a taste of what Deekay is all about musically. Composed by Thulani Dlamini the single is a love ballade the is not only meant to be enjoyed by couples only, but by any who relates.
Now she has released her sophomore single and this time she has decided to experiment with a different genre and has chosen to go with something a little bit more upbeat to get people dancing.
