Supernova Ami Faku is one of South Africa’s fastest rising stars. Her music, which she calls “modern Afro soul,” blends soul with modern pop and traditional Afro soul sensibilities. Be it on a ballad or over a house beat, the adaptable Eastern Cape-born artist maintains all her traits and soul. Armed with an exceptional ability to create classic hit singles across multiple genres, the singer-songwriter dominated radio airplay in 2019 with Pop, House, Dance, Afro Soul and Hip-Hop singles. Her debut album Imali was received with critical acclaim and landed her the coveted feature as Apple Music’s New Artist Spotlight for the month of October, following in the footsteps of Sho Madjozi, Simmy, Tellaman and Shekhinah. The album also debuted at number one on Apple Music (ZA).
