WTF UTHANDO LWAMI VIDEO TREATMENT

Music

The is a love song with a very chilled back type of feel.We've fused both English and Zulu together throughout the entire song but it mostly caters for a zulu/swati speaking person.We fill this song can be really big throughout the entire zulu/swati communities in the country from the township to the villages.Its currently sitting on 23k views on youtube and its just an audio,so there's a high demand for the visuals.
