KwaZulu Natal born spark plug, Fezeka Dlamini taps into the Gospel fraternity to express gratitude to God through her latest offering ‘Ewe Jesu’ Out today and available on all digital platforms. Listen here.
Hailing from a small town in the West of Durban, Pinetown, this rising high school music sensation aims to bring the church to the tips of the listeners fingers through her new single. This track also shares a personal touch of Dlamini’s background as she lost her parents at a young age being left to be raised by her aunt whom she refers to as her Mother. Fezeka challenges herself with her music to tell her story, encourage those who get to be exposed to it and empower those who have lost hope.
In less than three weeks, Christians will be getting into the much annually celebrated and honoured religious weekend and holiday, the Easter Weekend, Fezeka drops ‘Ewe Jesu’ ahead of this time where she also gives believers a song to praise and worship with at this time.
“I want to remind those who listen to Ewe Jesu to don’t forget to give things to God and you don’t have to go to Church to be able to praise God.” Said Dlamini on new single.
‘Ewe Jesu’ features Mfana kah Gogo and Minero who both bring a taste of youth and Amapiano touch to the serenading sounds of Fezeka Dlamini.
Speaking around the meaning of ‘Ewe Jesu’ Fezeka says “Ewe Jesu means, yes Lord, my soul and life, only wants you.”
High school teen sensation, Fezeka Dlamini, is one of Durban Base Entertainment’s fast rising stars. Following the footsteps of Amapiano crooner and stable-mate, Mfana Kah Gogo, Fezeka is an act to look out for this year.
“I am inspired by a lot of musicians as I grew up listening to music. If I had to share a few of my favourites they would include Ami Faku, Mfana Kah Gogo and Beyonce,” she said.
“I related to Mfana’s material because we are both young and we do the same music. Beyonce is very creative and I feel her level of creativity pushes me to get better and never be content with what I make. With Ami, I feel like I can relate to her songwriting. All her songs have deep meaning and as I write my songs, I would like to do the same as well,” she added.
Born and bred in Pinetown, KZN, Fezeka was unfortunately orphaned at an early age. She moved in with an aunt to whom she refers to as mom as she raised her as her own.
“She is my hero and my everything. She is top of the list when I am defining what a queen is,” said the singer.
Ukhalelani is a question that directly translated means, “Why are you crying?”. However the singer just does not leave it there.
“There was a time where I went through a lot and I thought I had reached my breaking point. Then I started to express through music and I felt better. The song has me ask the listener. I am comforting the person crying that everything can happen to anyone. It’s tough love but while I am actually encouraging them,” thanks
Having lost her parents while young makes Fezeka the perfect messenger to bring the message of encouragement to all those who are in tough times.
“I think some fans will probably relate to how it feels to the passing of parents. I just want to share that I have learned not to use that loss not to pursue my dreams. This is the message I want to share with people out there. Life always throws something at you but it is how you fight that that matters the most,” said the singer.
