Wandile Mbambeni Kwakumnandi

Following the release of his debut album Kwakumnandi, Wandile Mbambeni is pretty excited to kick off 2019 with this incredible news. “I’m very excited to be included on Tamia’s South African Tour! It’s such a great opportunity for me and I’m so grateful. It’s a dream come true and I can’t believe I finally get to see her perform live!”

The next single to be released from Kwakumnandi is the heartfelt duet with SA sensation, Shekhinah on Wanted & Loved. A remix will be released on 1 March, 2019.

About Kwakumnandi

What’s the inspiration behind the title track? “I was sitting in my studio apartment and homesickness struck, I was missing being under one roof with the whole family. We went through a divorce and it was never the same, but instead of reflecting on the bad past, I chose to reflect on the times that were nice to me. ‘Kwakumnandi’ in isiXhosa is translated ‘it was nice/it was a lovely time’ used when referring to past happy times. I sing in the chorus ‘Kwakumnandi back then…’”

Wandile’s favourite song? “My favourite songs in the album change every time, today it’s Kwakumnandi! In this album I got to work with people who are extremely talented, and the bonus is they believed in me. Congratulations to Shekhinah and Bongeziwe Mabandla for the SAMA Awards, they both contributed to my album and I’m ever so grateful. I also worked with LasNumber on a song we wrote in 2015, I’m so excited about this record.”

He concludes, “This album is about nostalgia, reflecting on the good times. No matter what we can always say ‘Kwakumnandi’, everyone can say ‘Kwakumnandi’ and reflect. We are not saying we do not love the present we are living in right now, we enjoy the present so we can reflect and say ‘Kwakumnandi’.”
