My Song for South Africa in collaboration with Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) and the Automobile Association of South Africa (AA). The intention of the song is to ignite hope within each of us and to fuel an awareness that everyone has a role to play in mending our country's social fabric and the recovery of our economy.

The SONG is performed by Vuka Africa Collective and produced by Yusuf Ganief - Rootspring Music

My Rants and reflections expressed in April 2021-

The Lyrics - composed by Lynne Holmes from (Desert Rose)

I pray, For our country, My religion is peace

And I pray, for all our people

My religion is love

Together we rise (xa sisonke singa phakama)

Together we will fall (xa sisonke singawa)

Remember who we are (ngithi khumbula)

Remember where we come from (nkosi sikekela)

All of our suffering (intlupheko) and how we overcome


South Africa (Afrika boroa), lay down your arms (a re rapeleng)

There are no winners in war

South Africa (a re tshwaraneng) embrace each other (afrika boroa)

Let’s stand together once more

Afrika boroa ke le hae laka

Ke rapela bana hae

Ke rapela lerato le thato

A re emeng mmokgo

Ndi thandazela umhlaba wethu

Inkolo yam luxolo

Inkolo yam luthando

Khumbula sizwe, khumbula lapho uphuma khona

Inhlupheko yethu, nendlela yengqubeko

Ningizimu Afrika, Masibambaneni

Ayikho impumelelo empini

Ningizimu Afrika, Masibambaneni

Sihlanganeni futhi

Motho ke motho ka batho ba bangwe

All for one and one for all

And I will stand by you

And I will share my life with you

Rise, rise, rise up once more

Rise South Africa

Together we rise

South Africa (Afrika boroa) lay down your arms (a re rapeleng)

There are no winners in war (mzansi Afrika)

South Africa (a re tshwaraneng) embrace each other (re rataneng) (afrika boroa)

Let’s stand together once more

The mission is to spread love and light through music! The reference to war is a metaphor. I believe we need to practice channelling our anger and frustration into productivity and good.

Make this Heritage Day count!

My heartfelt gratitude to Ashraf Johaardien the CEO of BASA. Through our leadership journey, our connection of mind, heart and soul we impacted so many lives. I am privileged and blessed to journey with you. You are an AMAZING leader with an equal measure of mind and heart. I love you!

Spread the love and Be KIND!

I wish you love, light, happiness, and Freedom
