video for her song Nangu Makoti from her latest album, Izikhali ZaMantungwa.

many obstacles and finally finds happiness. “Couples go through a lot before
they decide to get married.
It takes a lot of getting to know each
other and putting up with each other’s families, but in the end love conquers
all and that’s what the song is about. It’s a celebration,” Zandie explains.

Gumede feature in the vid. “In Isibaya Samukele plays a calm, beautiful and
patient character – a typical example of what a traditional husband looks for
in a woman. She was the perfect person to play the bride,” Zandie says.
Mdu plays the role of a Zulu taxi driver.
“I picked Mdu because he has an amazing body – he’s built like a warrior and has
an amazing complexion,” she says.
