Undala is a tribute by Def Eff to his mother. The Mthatha born, now Cape Town based MC/Rapper, beautifully honours and celebrates the deep devotion and sacrifices his mother continues to make for her family. On the beat is producer Two Point Owe, a Johannesburg born, now German based beat maker, & Kool Out’s #DillaBeatChallenge winner.
Def Eff details his mother’s selflessness and leadership qualities that overrode the hardships she bore as a first-born child to her Rev father, in an era where racial divide and discrimination against women were rife.
The track encompasses the struggle faced by many black mothers, who, generation on generation raise their children as single parents, while also shouldering the responsibility to support their own siblings.
The former presenters of My Perspective continue the energy from Assembly Radio days featuring The Un who backs up the vocals on the hook, further balancing the mellow feel of the track.
