Ralf GUM Uyakhala, a new single featuring Mafokizolo
GOGO Music proudly presents Ralf GUM Uyakhala, a new single that also features Mafokizolo.
Uyakhala is based on the strong African belief that it takes a village to raise a child or a person is a person through other people, which is what makes it so special that the track features Mafikizolo; the legendary afro-pop band.
The track will be featured on Ralf GUM’s forthcoming and long-awaited 4th studio album “Progressions,” set for release on 1 March via GOGO Music.
