Amanda Black 

Amanda Benedicta Antony, known to her fans as Amanda Black was born and bread in the Eastern Cape in the city of Mthatha. The 22 yr. old SingerSongwriter was born on the 24 of July 1993. Having moved around a lot throughout her childhood, Amanda is true child of the soil, having lived in both the Eastern Cape and Johannesburg. Her musical influences are a result of her exposure to different ways of life having attended a number of primary schools and high schools as her family moved. She completed her high school studies in Port Elizabeth at Kabega Christian School and matriculated in 2011. For her Tertiary education Amanda enrolled at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth where she took up a course in Music studies, Amanda says her mother insisted that she had to study further and the natural option to study to her was of course her greatest passion. She Graduated in 2015 with a Diploma in Music Education.

After graduating, Amanda Black moved to Johannesburg in January 2016 to further pursue her musical aspirations. As destiny may have it, Ambitiouz Entertainment scouted Amanda within 4 months of her move. The bubbly and passionate youngster is now signed to the record and management label. Fresh from signing, the inspired artist went straight into studio and recorded her first single “Amazulu”. Produced by the Lunatik, whose behind some of SA’s biggest hits (KO – Caracara and Ameni By Miss Pru), Amazulu is a fusion of African inspired beats with soul music and strong lyrical content with a powerful voice that makes this song a hit in its own category in the industry. The single was released for free download on 1 July 2016 and has since received over 53 000 downloads. Amazulu is receiving massive response from radio stations across the country since its release beginning July.
