To commemorate Youth Day, award-winning singer Simphiwe Dana, well known for her outspoken views, will release a single on June 16 called State of Emergency.

“The year 1976, was a gruesome time in South Africa. I’m still haunted by apartheid images of state-endorsed black-on-black violence and the status quo of dehumanization. I still feel that, instead of moving forward, the world is going backwards.
This song addresses the 1976 uprisings and social injustices which are occurring around the world today”, said Dana. The song will be available for download here from June 16 (Vodacom customers only), and will be aired from June 15 on Metro FM.
