There is a saying, that if we fail to learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. With his debut single titled Khumbula, Manny Yack is determined to learn and teach his peers to not make the same mistakes. The 24-year-old wants to help build a generation of young men who take responsibility for their children. Khumbula is him conversing with his father about the scars he left him with by leaving him at a young age. The heart-rendering single is available on all streaming and downloading platforms.
Naaaa Naaaaa Naaaa
Sindawonye, one happy family.
I still don’t understand why you had to leave
Baba I hope you listening
I know you don’t want anything to do with me again
I know you said that you don’t wanna hear from me again
But then again
I got me some questions
That’s gonna need some answering
Why you gotta make us choose between you no mama?
Ya’ll had problems but siyingane asiyngeni lezoyindaba
Every time you came around, I knew it’s gonn be drama
You supposed to be the one ongibonisayo ngomhlaba
Wapakisha izinto zakho
Wahambha ungashongo lutho, 18 years I’m the man of the house
I’m stuck and confused
Do you know how many nights salala singenakho ukudla?
What that sh*t gotta do neyinkinga zenu noy-two?
But I appreciate it, that’s what turn me to a man
Looked at your mistakes and said I’ll never do the same
Tried to make amends
But your pride as a man didn’t allow it
I guess it’s God’s plan
I understand now
the pressures okuba yindoda
When there’s nobody that’s gonna guide
Who’s done it before
Ngiyabonga ngemizamo yakho
You put me through isikolo
And I’d be lying if I said
Your intentions weren’t good
I guess your weaknesses
Cause you’re only human
I’m tryna be a better you
Ngivuse ikhaya elikhulu
Be a better man to my shawty and my daughter too
And impilo inzima nami ngizowenza amaphutha
So who am I judge?
Pray you come back around
Baba I need your love…yeah
