Multi Award-winning Afro-soul singer-songwriter Berita has collaborated with internationally acclaimed Ndlovu Youth Choir for a song dedicated to the fight against gender-based violence called Ungandibulali.
Set in a soft ballad to imitate a love letter, yet lyrically capturing the important message, Ungandibulali firmly and poetically confronts communities and the oppressing gender who enable the abuse. Berita had this to say about the significance of the song, and on this major collaboration, “I am truly honored to have partnered with the Ndlovu Youth Choir for this campaign against the battle we are currently facing in the country. Gender-based violence is destroying our homes, our schools, our churches, and our communities, Ungandibulali is our committed contribution to the fight against GBV and my dedication to all the women and children who have fallen victim to this atrocious injustice.”
Ungandibulali debuted on all SABC radio stations at 8:15 am today as a part of a campaign. Ungandibulali is the theme song for SABC Radio’s ‘Don’t turn a bling eye,’ campaign driving the message of no violence against women. In addition, Berita’s record label Assali Music pledges a portion of the proceeds of the song towards the fight against Gender-Based Violence in South Africa.
