What inspires you all?
We are all firstly inspired by God and then others vary from the environment within which we live, challenges, hardship and so on.
Where do you guys get your strength from?
â€œGod is the source of our strength, our families and friends.Â I get my strength from prayerâ€ says Sandile. Â â€œI believe so much in prayer because it draws me close to the author and finisher of my faith. Iâ€™m encouraged by an acronym â€˜P.U.S.H.â€™ Pray Until Something Happensâ€ says Nsiki
What is the first thing you do before you perform?
We pray and encourage each other before we go on stage

What does it feel like working with the likes of Jabu Hlongwane?
Working with people like Jabu Hlongwane has been an honour as he is one of the people we always watch on TV. We aspired to be like them and to finally be taken under his wing as our mentor was a privilege that one cannot take for granted as he has a great deal of experience in the music industry.
What can we expect from your album?
What you can expect from our new album is the Power of God, healing, restoration, hope and a life changing experience.
