The 26-year-old was born Amanda Benedicta Antony in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape. Amanda got noticed on season 11 of Idols SA where she only made the top sever. Ambitiouz Entertainment gave her a deal in 2016 and Amanda’s career has been booming ever since.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Power is Amanda’s second lit album and the first since she left Ambitiouz. The album was inspired by her turbulent yet wonderful journey in the music industry.
The album dropped at the ripe hour of midnight last night. Fans stayed awake waiting for the album and the response has been overwhelming.
Amanda explained that her journey has not been smooth sailing and she is glad for that as it has taught her a lot.
"The music industry is not designed for the artist, it’s an exploitative system so you need to fight."
Power has been blowing up all over social media since it dropped at midnight. Amanda has done the thing with this album and deserves all the glory she is receiving.
