Johannesburg-raised star Mncedisi Eric Mncabe, known by the stage name SXTEENGHOST, has released a new song in celebration of Women’s Month. The song, “Mama/Let Go”, is a powerful tribute to the unconditional love of mothers, and is a collaboration with award-winning hip-hop veteran AB Crazy.
The song is a fusion of Afrobeats drum patterns, blended with world vocal effects, percussions accompanying soulful keys, and an 808 bass line that will have your head bopping at play. The composition is well written, arranged, and delivered with a powerful featured vocal performance by AB Crazy. Their collaborative efforts put this song at the center of listeners eager to hear something that will get them going when tough times are near.
The song was inspired by the death of SXTEENGHOST‘s mother, who was a massive support structure in his life. After her loss, he sank into a very dark place, making bad judgment calls because of unreliable peers. However, he eventually picked himself up and rebuilt his life, finding salvation in music.
“Mama/Let Go” is a reminder of the strength and resilience of mothers, and the power of their love. It is a song that will resonate with anyone who has ever lost a loved one, or who has ever struggled to find their way in life.
