Amanda opened up to Anele Mdoda on Real Talk with Anele about the pressure that comes with having one of the most popular songs in South Africa at the moment.

“The pressure that I am getting now is a lot.. with everyone warning me not to be a one hit wonder. A lot of people are waiting for me, but I don’t want to rush it,” she said.

The singer explained that she will not rush the process for the sophomore album but when she puts out new music, it will be a journey.

She revealed that Amazulu was the first song she penned and admitted that the song did more she expected.
