#4 – Ringo Madlingozi – Sondela

Ringo Madlingozi is a lothario. He’s an old school seducer. Quite similar to Marvin Gaye, he’s also a romantic. “Ngekhe ndikuphoxe/Nd’ohlala ndingowakho/kude kuyovalwa” (“I won’t let you down/I’ll be yours forever”). There’s a promise, and not only a promise of sensuality which is all over the breathy background female vocals, but a promise of love. This is a mature, committed seduction.
