The track and visuals which feature songstress Feli Nandi was released yesterday on his YouTube channel ahead of his two album launches this weekend. And if the views on YouTube are anything to go by, the song that was the number 1 trending video on YouTube as of Tuesday afternoon is a hit.
As of Tuesday at 1pm, the song that was uploaded on Monday morning was approaching 300 000 views on YouTube.
On Sarungano, Jah Prayzah expresses the pain of a love that came to an end, and despite efforts to move on, thoughts keep drifting back to what could have been. A longing for a different outcome, a wish for reconciliation. Feli Nandi’s soulful vocals complement JP’s storytelling, conveying the shared emotions of heartbreak and inner turmoil.
