In a sonic landscape where spiritual messaging and vibrant beat selection are worlds apart, Vth Season Afropop singer, songwriter, drummer, composer, The Muffinz Bandmember and king of the melodies Kekelingo delivers the best of both elements.
Collaborating with proficient artist and producer John Lundun, Kekelingo bridges the gap between contrasting genre textures with his latest single, “Ithemba”, the isiZulu term for hope.

Characterised by quotes such as “Mina ma ngingene, Ngingene, Endumisweni”, which loosely translate to “as I enter, let me in, in praise”, “Ithemba” is rooted in the form of gospel music’s spiritual depth, serenaded over a peppy Afropop texture.
“Ithemba” serves as a restorative record intended to reinstall hope and self-belief in moments where one is conflicted with doubt and is detached from their voice of reason. This song reminds the listener of the underrated power of faith and optimism.
To experience the rare duality of groove and grace, be sure to request “Ithemba” on your favourite radio stations and connect with Kekelingo for more music updates documenting his search for profound truth.
