Following the successful release of her debut album “Promised Land” earlier this year, 2018 Idols SA Winner, Yanga Sobetwa, releases yet another successful single off the album, titled “Little Girl”.
Within six months of her triumph on the popular music TV show, her 10 track album which represents a new wave of urban-pop localising competitive global sounds with vernacular, enhancing the authenticity of the music, was released to critical acclaim.
The album offers a young and fresh feel and features collaborations with Grammy Award Winners The Soweto Gospel Choir, multi-platinum Afro-pop star Nathi, and former Idols stars Amanda Black and Season 13 Winner, Paxton.
Her previous single ‘Promised Land’ also received massive support on national radio stations across the country – and ‘Little Girl’ is destined to follow suit!
“Little Girl is one of my favourite songs off my album, and I’m so excited that it will be coming out later this week. This song speaks to me personally, it is about how sometimes things can seem all good in front of the screen but just the opposite is happening right behind it. It’s a song I think everyone can relate to and I cannot wait for people to be touched and healed through it” shares Yanga.
