Ndingumlungu is my first track as a musician and I self-produced the video, challenging stereotypes both white and black in the new South Africa, and trying to inspire people to learn the joys of isiXhosa, the language of Biko, Tutu, Mandela, Mda, Mbutuma and Ma Brenda Fassie.
I need help to produce more tracks and vids comicly promoting multicultural harmony. Any support appreciated!
