Amanda Black has released supporting visuals for her current lead single, Ungayeki, featuring Berita, with a live performance of the single, which seemingly does not feature Berita.
Amanda Black took to Instagram on Friday, 6 August 2021, to confirm the release of the Ungayeki live performance video. The live performance video was released simultaneously with the release of Black’s third official album, Mnyama. While the original audio features Berita, the live performance sees Black singing Berita’s verse on the song.
According to the album’s description, Black stated, “Here, I’m featuring Berita—love her, my sister. I truly wanted to believe it at the time, that something will change. That’s why the song is also sad: I’m trying to push through it, I’m trying to push through, saying, ‘Ndicela ungayeki [don’t give up], things will change.’ It’s one of the songs that are specifically about the pandemic. All of us were going through something before the pandemic hit, and it just added onto our problems. So, I’m kind of talking to myself, like, ‘Listen, I know it’s been hard, and it hasn’t got anywhere near better, but it will.’”
