Composition[edit]

When asked about what the song is about, Amanda Black had this to say. "Amazulu is a journey song in a nutshell. It is a relationship between me and my music and where I want it be, from the disappointment of idols to being told I wasn’t good enough. When I came to Joburg, the only person I knew was my cousin and it was hard as I felt like I wasn’t good enough, I had some many doors closed in my face."

The song was written by herself alongside Christer Kobedi and produced by Lunatik with additional production from Christer and Vuyo Manyike

The song "Amazulu" has been nominated for multiple awards including "Record of the Year" at the 23rd SAMAs.
