MFR Souls have released their new single, Abahambayo, featuring Mzulu Kakhulu, Khobzn Kiavalla and DJ T-Man SA, which is not from their 2020 album, Musical Kings.
MFR Souls took to Instagram on Friday, 14 May 2021, to announce the release of their new single, Abahambayo, featuring Mzulu Kakhulu, Khobzn Kiavalla and DJ T-Man SA. The feature list showcases the continued effort of the duo to highlight new talent with every single they release. Abahambayo is the first independent single which is not part of their critically acclaimed amapiano album, Musical Kings, which was released in 2020.
According to a statement shared on the day of release, “‘Abahambayo features an igwijo-inspired break that gives the song an authentic South African flavour, it is a new sound where they have fused amapiano and maskandi. Trust us when we say it’ll get you off your seat and keep you moving.”
The most notable part of the single is when the duo pauses on the instrumentation and provides a break in the single. The break is reminiscent of acapella church sessions, which highlights the spiritual element that was prominent in their previous release.
The single is available for purchase on Apple Music.
