The song gives a glimpse of what he’s going through after Anele Tembe’s passing, he shares his pain and reminisces on their time together.
First thing on my mind/When I wake up.
I cannot feel sunshine with you not waking up by my side.
Nothing else can replace us. Try to break down and cry, but all my tears run dry.
We left out some parts of the hook that were harder to hear.
I was you in my dreams
Not because I don’t want to link up with you again
But because when I wake up reality is deep.
Check my phone I reach I could see usual routine
Damn, we had so many plans mfanagithi
And I call you that because you my bestie not my bi**h
When I got to bed you gon remind me brush your teeth
That’s my favourite version of you, you were just at ease
I found the most beautiful girl I had ever seen.
There’s been a hive of activity on social media since the incident, with speculations and shocking revelations over the last few months.
He finally put all questions to rest with an hour-long interview where he spoke about all that ensued the night Anele Tembe lost her life.
The rapper only returned to social media last week, sharing snippets of what he’s been getting up to, where he’s seen spending time with his family and friends as well as sessions in the studio.
