Blaq Diamond songs
Here are the ones we selected from both their old and new material. Enjoy!
1. Emzini Kababa
Kicking off our list is this jam from November 2017. Blaq Diamond Emzini Kababa is the second track from their album entitled Inqola, released in the year 2017 under Ambitiouz Entertainment.
This track is the one they are probably most famous for. It is one of their biggest hits to date. As of now, Blaq Diamond Ibhanoyi has amassed over 7.4 million views on YouTube. The song’s premise follows two young men who work hard to provide for their partners with whom they are in love.
It is the seventh track on their 2020 album titled Umuthi. However, it was released before the actual album as part of the Blaq Diamond songs 2019 catalog.
The official Ibhanoyi lyrics can be found in the video’s description.
The song is by Ami Faku and the boys are featured guests. The title of this song means money or currency in Zulu. Obviously, it is a popular subject, proven by the existence of another different song by the exact same title by a different artist (Zahara). However, the boys managed to make this one stand out from the rest.
This is one of their other very popular songs. It is the ninth track in Inqola, which was released back in 2017. However, it has proven to be so popular that there has been a very recent remix version of it released just a few days ago with none other than Amapiano’s heavy-hitting duo of collaborators, DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small.
This is the introduction track from Inqola.

6. Love Letter
With over 1,700,000 views on YouTube, this song is their biggest hit of 2020 so far. Its video description carries the following message:
Love Letter is for all who are separated by distance. The music video tells a short story highlighting the pressures people go through to impress their loved ones. Shot by Ambitiouz Visuals, the music video aims to show the injustices of the criminal justice system and that sometimes people are put in harm’s way by their innocent actions.
This gem from 2018 is by DJ Citi Lyts, where he also brought along the fellow artists S. Villa, Kid Tini, LaSauce, and Emtee.
The ever-talented Sjava makes an appearance in this track from Umuthi. He speaks about people who are never there for you when you need them most.
9. On My Mama
This inspirational song is by DJ Mkiri Way, and it was produced by Christopher “Kreazoe” Thobela. The lyrics revolve around the artists' determination to make it against all the odds.
This track, where they enlisted The Legacy for a feature, is the sixth entry in Umuthi.
This track is by Miss Pru DJ with Loyiso, LaSauce, Lisa, and Cici. Like Imali listed earlier, there is another track with a similar title (in this case, by and Tresor and Msaki) but they have once again managed to sound distinct.
With nearly 3 million views on YouTube, Blaq Diamond Sthandwa is another one of their biggest hits. It is the eighth track on Inqola, and it was released as one of its promotional singles.
This is the title track of their latest album, and it is also the introduction to their project. It features Cici and Zamo Cofi.
