South Africa's internationally-renowned Ndlovu Youth Choir has shared a moving prayer song Mangisondele Nkosi Yam with Mzansi amid days of unrest and ongoing looting.

Loosely translated as "Let Me Be Nearer My Lord", it is an emotionally charged rendition, which is also a prayer, that was shared by the choir in the last few days.

“We pray for peace in our beautiful land during these difficult times. God bless SA.”

The song presents as a much-needed anecdote to quell the public outcry, although now believed to be a criminal element, observed in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal over the incarceration of former president Jacob Zuma.

Many untold stories feature prominently in what has become a raging cascade of suffering, particularly in parts of the two provinces at the forefront of the country's battle against total lawlessness.

South Africans reacted with glee at the song after the group – that featured prominently on the 2019 edition of America's Got Talent – reached the final of arguably the biggest TV talent show competition in the world.

This follows controversial remarks made by the latter on Tuesday, 13 July, in which he went on a heated tirade rubbishing the government, and in and among it all, chalking himself up.

A video of his rant was posted to Twitter and has since been making the rounds, dividing views and, in the case of Zuma-Sambudla, drawing praise. The video was captioned:

"Respect to you @official_jubjub … No army was sent when 500 billion was looted."

At the start of Jub Jub's recorded speech, he is heard encouraging the ongoing acts of looting which have engulfed Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal before taking jabs at "those who think they've arrived".

The Ndikhokhele hitmaker criticised blacks and celebrities who choose not to speak up against the violence that is threatening to collapse the country's already ailing economy.
