Johannesburg- Ambitiouz Entertainment looks back in celebration of the talented
stars we have lost in the South African entertainment industry. These brilliant minds
were snatched from us by tragic accidents, murders, and some lost their battles to
depression as well as illnesses. The award-winning record label features its artists
Malome Vector, DoubleUp, Sbahle, and Sibu Nzuza in an emotional Gospel song
titled Let It Rain.
The decision to pay tribute comes after the label has seen how social media
timelines and feeds are filled with “Gone too soon, rest in peace”, as grief seems to
be taking over everyone’s happiness especially since 2022 started. You log in to
social media or watch television only to be met with the sad news of someone
missing, raped, or dead.
Let It Rain is a plea to God that says, “we have heard enough, let your mercy rain on
us.” In the intro of the song, SAMA-nominated artist, Malome Vector reflects on how
we lose people daily:
Every day we die, for how long we don’t know. We can’t take no more, our
hearts ain’t so strong.
Botswana-born artist, DoubleUp who asks the Lord to wash us with the blood of the
lamb says Let It Rain has the power to move and change the situation the country is
faced with. He adds that working on this song has tested his abilities as an artist
because it is outside his comfort zone.
Sbahle, who brings in the soft harmonies in the song as the only female says
working with such talented artists feels great. She adds that: “With what’s going on
around the world; the increase in death rates and fights among countries, the
song will touch many hearts. My aim as an artist is to touch people’s hearts
with my gift.”
This year also seems to be Sibu Nzuza’s year to showcase his versatility as an artist,
as just two weeks ago he jumped on the amapiano wave for the first time, and now
he is part of a Gospel song. The 30-year-old says if a song speaks to the people the
right way, he is happy to serve.
In Let It Rain Nzuza gives a powerful prayer in which he asks God to heal all the
“To be honest, I do not pray often, but I am a son of a praying mother, so some
of it did rub off on me,” he says.
This single drops with an equally heartfelt music video enacting the horrendous
losses we have faced as a country. The six-minute-long music video also shows us
the artists lighting one another’s candles, to remind us to always stay kind and be
there for one another.
We truly believe that the Lord’s mercies will be poured unto us. To all the people we
have lost we say: Your legacies have impacted South Africa and beyond. You will
always be in our hearts.
