Singer and songwriter Ami Faku might be a new kid on the block but with every single she releases, she is cementing herself in the industry. Faku features on a hit single alongside Sun El Musician, on, Into Ingawe and she just released her latest single, Love Drunk.
Born and raised in the Eastern Cape, Faku started making a name for herself when she auditioned for "The Voice South Africa" and was picked by Lira in 2017.
Although her time on the show was short-lived, she caught the attention of the show’s music director, who later connected her to record label boss, Raphael Benza.
Speaking about "Love Drunk", Faku said she was inspired by her own experiences.
“I was dating someone, and I just was not getting what I wanted from that person. When I complained, they always said I was trying to change them, which was not the case. I just realised that he was not drunk on love as much as I was and I needed to walk away, so I did.”
