“Follow The Sunset”, a reimagining of “Ubomi Abumanga”, features the sounds of Llandudno Beach and
will also be performed live at the Corona Sunsets Festival World Tour in Cape Town on April 1
Cape Town, March 27 th , 2023 – In this era of collaboration, a special music video has emerged from Sun-
El Musician and Msaki with “Follow The Sunset”, a reimagined version of the hit song, “Ubomi
Abumanga”, featuring the voice of nature.
Recorded with all the glory of an African sunset on Llandudno Beach in Cape Town, Sun-El’s musical
genius and Msaki’s stunning vocals were inspired to celebrate the eternal turn of the day into night, an
opportunity for rest, and restoring a sense of peace. “Ubomi Abumanga – Follow The Sunset”, is a lush,
orchestral call to acknowledge that little moments make life beautiful.
“Whenever I come to the sea, I always feel like when the sun sets, a song waiting for me. This was a very
special moment for me to be able to have done this version of the song at this time in my life,” says
The original version of “Ubomi Abumanga” (“life hasn’t stopped”) was the second single off Sun-El’s
2020 album “To The World And Beyond”. Featuring Msaki, the song came soon after the end of the
Covid pandemic and spoke to overcoming hardships and challenges at that time with the message that
“the sun will come out”.
“It intrigued me – the idea of what nature would sound like in a song – and when Corona suggested we
find out, I couldn’t resist. So, we took natural sounds that moved us when we were on the beach and
used them to help define an entirely new mood and production style on “Ubomi Abumanga”. It’s a
totally reimagined song,” says Sun-El Musician.
“Follow The Sunset”, has been released on YouTube ahead of the Corona Sunsets Festival World Tour in
Cape Town in which both Sun-El and Msaki will be appearing. The show will be one of Msaki’s last
performances before she takes time out from music.
Other artists performing at the festival, to take place at Glen Country Club, Clifton, on April 1, also
include Black Motion, Majozi, Musa Keys, Jeremy Loops, Good Luck, FKA Mash, DJ Leighton Moody and
the Ndlovu Youth Choir and Grammy Award-winning, American DJ/producer, Louie Vega.
A first-of-its-kind global touring festival, the Corona Sunsets Festival World Tour follows the sunset
worldwide and features a full year of festivals with international musicians and DJs performing as the
sunset takes center stage at 14 iconic beach destinations across the globe. These include South Africa,
Chile, Peru, Colombia, Italy, Japan, Canada, UK, China, Greece, Brazil, Dominican Republic, India, and
Now available on YouTube, the beautifully shot video is a powerful call to finding oneself in nature and
features Sun-El and Msaki on Llandudno beach, as well as scenes from the rocks overlooking the ocean
as the sun sets.
““Ubomi Abumanga – Follow The Sunset” is a beautiful call for us all to immerse ourselves in and draw
inspiration from nature. The sounds are simply spectacular, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have
been supportive of Sun-El and Msaki in creating this incredible music project, especially with Msaki
taking some time out from music soon,” says Marsha Kumire, Marketing Director, Corona South Africa.
