Snenhlanhla ‘Sneziey’ Msomi’s momentum to stardom has kept a consistent pace since her turnout in the 2019 SA Idols. The 27-year-old is quickly becoming a prominent voice in the gospel scene and to stake another bold claim, she recently released Izulu as a follow-up to her album of the same title.

Gospel star uplifts with Izulu single

In a single weekend, Sneziey’s single was streamed more than 232 000 times on YouTube, a clear statement of intent from the songstress.

“It’s been amazing, and writing the song was just me looking back at how much of an overprotective parent God is over me. God’s blessings are for me despite my mistakes and sometimes how unworthy I might be, and I can never comprehend and understand who I really am in Christ and in his eyes,” the pious singer wrote.
