Bongeziwe Mabandla’s “Ndiyakuthanda” provides a moving soundtrack for a new FNB commercial directed by Greg Gray of Romance Films.
Titled “HOPE”, the commercial celebrates the grit and solidarity of South Africans in the face of a global pandemic with the heartfelt film exploring our “new normal” through the eyes of a frontline worker.
The commercial’s powerful message of resilience is brought into sharp focus through the evocative visuals of DP Jamie Ramsey, with Bongeziwe’s music adding to the emotion.
“Ndiyakuthanda” is the closing track off Bongeziwe Mabandla’s acclaimed album iimini which was released earlier in 2020. On its release, the album took the coveted number #1 spot on iTunes and is undoubtedly one of 2020’s standout albums.
