After successfully releasing his third studio album alongside banging singles, multi award-winning African Pop Singer, Songwriter and Producer, TRESOR releases a sweet love song featuring Msaki called Sondela.


Off of his album; Nostalgia – Tresor and Msaki tell a love story between two lovers who romantically declare their never-ending love and commitment to each other. The melodious track is the latest release from the album and follows the musical sound theme heard on Nostalgia. Sondela, is a Afro Pop sing along that beautifully paints a forever love and tells the story of home being where the heart really is.

TRESOR had this to say about creating the song

“Working on this song was really very special and purely organic. It took us roughly 2 hours to complete the song – I was busy putting the beat together whilst she was finishing up her writing for her verse. We both then recorded the final vocals instantly. This was one of the very first songs we have ever written together. We wanted to write an honest love song in Xhosa and in Swahili. The Magic came together naturally; I am truly excited to share this song with the world.”

In a short statement, Msaki described Sondela as a romantic poem,

“Sondela is a love song for an introvert. The chorus and bridge play on a Xhosa euphemism ‘Umntu ohleka naye’ which translates directly to ‘The one you laugh/smile with’ which would be the person you are in a relationship with. The song is a playful reassurance and old-school poetic romance.”

Sondela is available on TRESOR’s Nostalgia Album – which is available on all music platforms.
