“Senzeni Na” is a well-known South African struggle song that our heroes utilised as a war cry during the apartheid era and, in 2020, Rouge and Amanda were able to redefine this golden oldie by owning it and inspiring anyone who will listen to this new inspirational Mzansi anthem.

“Growing up the youngest of four girls, it never dawned on me that I was growing up in a country where to be a woman was to be at constant risk,” said Rouge.
