Vusi Nova and Dumi Mkokstad surprised fans when they released their much-anticipated single, Yibanathi, a day earlier than expected, following much promotion on social media.
Vusi Nova and Dumi Mkokstad surprised fans on Thursday, 9 July 2020, by releasing their joint single, Yibanathi, a day earlier than expected. The single had been earmarked for release on Friday, 10 July 2020, following week-long promotional activity.
In an unexpected pairing, Yibanathi combines Vusi Nova’s signature afro-soul sound with Dumi Mkokstad’s gospel roots. The song is largely credited to producer, Mxolisi Mhlongo, who has worked with Dumi Mkokstad numerous times before.
Yibanathi is an inspirational, mid-tempo song that relies heavily on the beat to set the tone for its messaging. Vusi Nova delivers the opening verse before Dumi Mkokstad is introduced.
The single is available for purchase on Apple Music.
