In 2019, she released her triumphant sophomore album titled Power, which in Black’s fashion won Best Album at the South African Afro Awards in 2021.
Amanda recently released a new single titled Kutheni Na featuring the Award-winning Kwesta, from her much anticipated recent third album titled Mnyama where she reflects on the onset of the Covid pandemic and the mental health state of the country.
