Loui Lvndn explains the theme behind the song itself saying “Kill Her Killer is about a guy realising that he has to get rid the part of himself that will inevitably hurt the girl who he finds himself falling in love with. The song begins by painting the guy as a heartbreaker, super bad, someone she should never love, and he is quite happy with that. Until he meets his match and without realising it falls in love. The heartbreaker in him is "Her Killer" and the song's entire theme lies in the critical moment when he realises he has to "Kill Her Killer" in order for the new found love and happiness to stand any chance.”
With the song theme in mind, the video concept for was created by Pilot Films and fans are in for an incredible viewing when the full video is released. The release date is still a surprise but keep following Loui Lvndn online to see when the full video will be revealed.

Wandile Mbambeni releases I Know as the brand new single and music video from his Maturation EP. The video debuted on MTV Base’s ‘Spanking New’ show on Monday 30 October and fans who missed the first plays can watch the music video here - https://youtu.be/DkqdZjmTHhc <https://youtu.be/DkqdZjmTHhc>
Wandile explains what I Know is about, saying “This whole song is about the good guy always finishing last. It is then why the good guy gets a cold heart towards love, wanting this love & not wanting it at the same time.”
With the song theme in mind, the approach to the music video resulted in a beautiful product. “The video, the whole idea was to simplistic. I love silhouettes, I specifically felt that’s what the song needed. There’s a lot of space in the sound, ambient floating vocals, violins, trombones, these all add dark beautiful colours. We wanted to portray the meaning of the song in the most simple, creative, unique way. Motion Billy is very talented,” adds Wandile.
ABOUT WANDILE MBAMBENI:
Wandile Mbambeni was born and raised in the Eastern Cape - a region known as a hotbed for African talent as it’s the birthplace of many icons, including the late Nelson Mandela. Surprisingly, music was not Wandile Mbambeni’s first love. Coming from a sports-focused family, he initially pursued a career in professional rugby. Featuring at scrumhalf, he enjoyed success during the early stages of his rugby career, winning domestic competitions with Border U19s and the Eastern Province Kings U21s.
However, Wandile decided for a complete career switch song is the beginning of big things for this young man. This has seen the highly-acclaimed soul musician become high in demand.
“It was really difficult in the beginning, but I was very encouraged as more and more people started following my music. A big reason for the positive reaction is because I make a big effort to make timeless music. The greats of the music world are legends because their work is able to trend in every generation. I create my music with the same intention. Every song I’ve created tells a small part of my life story,” he says. “Looking back from where my journey started, I can proudly say that all the hard work was worth it… and now I hope to tell the Wandile Mbambeni story around the world.”
“I always enjoyed singing and received my first guitar when I was 16. I taught myself how to play it and started discovering my own sound. Music was always a hobby since then, but I was always encouraged to take it further whenever I played for friends and family,” says Wandile. “Music sparked this fire in my heart, which was something rugby didn’t do for me. So in 2014, I told my parents that i was quitting sport to pursue my passion. Later that year, I was lucky enough to tour Germany. Then in 2015, I packed up my things and left for Cape Town, where I was hoping to make a name for myself.”
While it was a bold life-changing move, the initial stages of Wandile’s musical journey wasn’t easy as he found himself backpacking from friend to friend, sleeping on couches as searched for opportunities on the Cape Town music scene. However, it didn’t take too long before he found his way.
Over the past two years, the 24-year-old has played at some of the biggest music festivals in South Africa, including Rocking the Daisies and the Richmond Hill Music Festival. A big accolade was being voted as one of the top 20 performances at last year’s Rocking the Daisies event, which included over 270 acts.
He has also released three EPs, including ‘Maturation’ which as dropped in May 2017. Famous music blog Texx in the City also rated ‘Lovers Like You’ single as one of the top 20 South African songs of 2016, describing the hit as “...a textbook case of finding beauty in the simplicity of the quieter moments.”
