Sonwabile Dzila, who is also popularly known as SauceManAfrika, recently released a new song titled Mnqongo which literally means “a single”.
It is available on digital platforms like Spotify, YouTube and Apple music, among others.
SauceManAfrika is a recording artist that specialises in the Afropop/ soul genre.
While he started writing songs in English in 2001, influenced by the likes of Anthony Hamilton, Musiq Soul Child and Lynden David Hall, he now writes strictly in his mother tongue – isiXhosa.
“I am glad I came to my senses about the choice of language to use when writing my songs. It is very important for one to use their language, especially our African languages need the recognition they deserve after being marginalised for centuries”.
He is inspired by local artists like Caiphus Semenya, Letta Mbulu, Ringo Madlingozi, MXO, Jabu Khanyile and Busi Mhlongo.
This is SauceManAfrika’s second offering after an album he sold from the boot of his car back in 2008. He worked with the late Melumzi Patrick Jack and also the late Tando Matina in production of that album, titled Izibulo. This time he worked with Bruce Mawillies, Kholekile Buyana and Mncedi “Emage” Fama.
