"To be honest, when I posted the video, I was just trying to get away from my current situation, of having to stay home and nurse my broken ankle, which meant no leaving my home until I'm healed and no more performances till then, so the only thing I can do is keep doing what I love and when I did the duet I honestly didn't even dream of this collaboration.
"I just felt the beat, and I wanted to join in on the challenge to gain more followers and grow my TikTok, but as the video went viral, I started to see a plethora of possibilities, and it was exciting and intimidating at the same time. Just when I thought all hope was lost, God brought it to me on a silver platter while sitting at home feeling helpless, which brings me to the title of the song Ndawo Yam."

Teejay Omar on the inspiration behind Ndawo Yam

The singer added that Ndawo Yam is a love song that is dedicated to music. He said music became his safe space when he was going through a rough patch.

"When I was doing that duet, I wasn't in the greatest state of mind, but I was taking comfort in the fact at least I have my music to run to kind of like a safe haven, hence the lyrics "Ndawo Yam yoku balekela" directly translated "my place of refuge”.
"I didn't think I was writing a possible hit song at the time, all I was doing was performing the only therapy I could afford at the time."

Briefly News also spoke to Prince Kaybee who shared the reasons why he chose to work with Teejay Omar after he freestyle on his instrumental. He said:

"TJ is a natural talent, that’s why it was effortless for him to sing. If you look at a lot of people who sing, it seems they dig very deep when they sing, almost like they are taught how to sing, it came naturally with TJ, and that’s the reason.
Another reason is to come up with a melody that actually works sometimes, when people freestyle on songs, the voice is great, but the composition needs some work, but for him, the composition and melody direction were perfect as a freestyle, I didn’t have to think much in terms of directing that so he is songwriter and a singer, which is amazing."
