Songstress Azana Teams Up With Amapiano Producers on “Goodbye” Remixes OUT NO!

Written by on 8 December, 2023

Azana releases an 8 track Amapiano remix pack of “Goodbye” from her latest album iGagu with heavyweight South African producers, musicians & DJs.
Being an artist is second nature to Azana, who has been singing since primary school in the 2000s. The lush Afro-house hit “Not Yet Uhuru”, on which house music producer Sun El Musician featured her, introduced her as a powerful new voice with a lot to say about her surroundings—an identity she further cemented with the release of her 2020 debut album, Ingoma, which covers a wide range of topics including love, spirituality and the pursuit of success.


On “Goodbye” Azana says “I actually wrote this song the last day of high school at Westville Girls. And I was saying, ‘The time has come for us to go our separate ways,’ talking about my relationships with my teachers, with the choir that I was in, with everything that was going on around me. Whenever you have to go your separate ways with someone, it’s because the time for that season to come has come. So, it’s just me accepting that things don’t last forever, and sometimes people are there for a season.”


The “Goodbye” remix pack sees Azana collaborating with some Amapiano producers, composers, musicians and DJs many of which she has collaborated with on their own projects. Ace Of Spades and two of the genres pioneers Da Muziqal Chef & De Mthuda are on the list of collaborators on the remix pack including Soa Matrix, Lowsheen, Ntokzin, Snow Deep, John Lundun, Soul Jam & fresh new talents Bless DeLa Sol & Ranger

Azana walks the line between Afro-pop, vocal Afro-house and soul with care and confidence. This versatility and ability to marry genres comes with having a dexterous voice—wide and textured, the Chesterville-born singer’s alto comfortably sits over this varied soundscape. Her take on singing and songwriting was shaped by musicians she grew up idolising, from Beyoncé to Nina Simone and venerable South African singers Camagwini, Simphiwe Dana and Letta Mbulu.
