South African musician, Simphiwe Dana, has taken to social media to announce that she will be postponing the official release date for her upcoming album titled ‘Bamako.’
The award-winning musician explained that the album release date is pushed back due to the outbreak of the pandemic virus, coronavirus. So, instead of the scheduled date, the 28th of March, her fifth studio album is now scheduled to be released on the 24th of April, 2020.
Simphiwe Dana said:
I regret to mention that my album launch has been moved to the 24th of April #CoronaVirusSA.
Simphiwe stated that the second single off the album, Bamako, will be released this week.
The good news is that the digital release of my next single is still going ahead this Friday #Uzokhala #BamakoIsComing #SafetyFirst.
As we understand the reason it has to be postponed, we are highly anticipating the release of her upcoming album, ‘Bamako.’
The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the cancellation of several shows and concerts in South Africa as organisers are striving to prevent the further spread of coronavirus. Amanda Black recently suggested that church gatherings and services be postponed to prevent the virus’s further spread.
