J’Something released a song he did for Uyinene Mrwetyana; the 19 years old student whose death news shook the whole of SA.
The singer said he has done the song since last year, 2019 but couldn’t drop it due to the tensed state of the country.
“Last year I wrote this song when a girl whom I didn’t know tragically passed away and left all of us in shock and filled the nation with sadness. I had no idea what to do that day and the days following … then there was the xenophobic attacks around the same time and I felt so useless not knowing how to get involved and we tried to speak about it and post things etc which I knew wouldn’t really help the situation,” he said.
“One night out of frustration and deep sadness I got into the studio to express myself and did this song. I never released it last year out of fear of sharing … unsure of how it would land and worried about people’s opinions. Today I would like to present to you with this song and pay tribute not only Uyinene, but so many others that are being killed daily.”
“I know this song too doesn’t solve anything but I would like to use my gifts to shine light on something I believe should’ve never happened and something that as a South African really shattered my heart.”
