Vuyina started 2023 with a bang, on the 10th of February she dropped the 2nd single of her highly anticipated album titled Sabela.
Sabela is a spiritual anthem about relying on and asking a higher power for guidance. It’s about the hardships of life getting to a person but in result they turn to someone else for help. Sabela is a reminder that although life is tough and there are downs, there is always a high that will make you forget about ever being at a low point. Our hearts greatest desires are always heard and will always come to fruition at some point in our individual journeys.
