Mabandla’s latest accolade comes as no surprise as music critics and fans alike have pegged iimini to be one of 2020’s finest musical offerings and the album is set to expand Mabandla’s growing global audience. Other highlights from Mabandla’s iimini release this past weekend include impressive charting on the R&B/Soul genre charts throughout the world, including #1 in Botswana, #2 in France, Switzerland and Austria, #3 in Netherlands and an incredible #23 in the massive US market. “This is a ray of sunshine in South Africa’s first weekend of lockdown! When COVID-19 broke, and all tours and live album promotion events were cancelled, we were desperately disappointed because so much hard work had been put into making this release a success. Perhaps we shouldn’t have worried? Fans all over the world have tuned in, streamed, downloaded, posted and sent literally hundreds of messages,” shares Sevi Spanoudi, Black Major Director.
iimini takes listeners on a journey of love through a cycle of 12 songs from the day of first meeting to the heart-breaking end.
