I wrote Avulekile in the darkest place of my life in January. It was birthed by pain and being in the place of thinking God has shut the windows of heaven over me. I remember singing this and it was completely opposite to what I felt! It was God singing it over me saying; “you are using the wrong pair of eyes” – he was saying; “use the eyes of faith, use the eyes of what you believe.” I wana say to you Avulekile Amazulu phezukwakho!! Whether it looks like it or whether you feel like it.
