How to Sing the South African National Anthem – Video

How to sing the South African national anthem

After the embarrassing debacles of South African singers not knowing how to sing the South African national anthem, we decided to make a little video series to help people to learn not only how to pronounce and sing the Xhosa/Zulu and Sotho/Tswana verses, but also what the individual words mean.

Verse 1:  isiXhosa/isiZulu

Verse 2:  seSotho / seTswana

[easy-media med=”2834″]


Sing a long and enjoy!  This hymn is a blessing!

Some Feedback:

“I Really loved today’s choir dittie ! I was so impressed by the ‘choir’ music that I clean forgot to listen to the words ;). My son and I have been struggling with this last part for a long time now ( he is in Gr 2), but now we are getting it, thanks to you!”

  1. This is the most beautiful anthem I have ever heard. It touches the inner chambers of my soul. Thanks for this!

    1. Enkosi Gail. Thank Enoch Sontonga!

  2. Uphonda lwayo……I do not understand/ spirit of her or it…..what spirit are we talking about seeing that I am a Christian…..

    1. Hi Cora
      I believe the reference is in regards to the non-religious sense of the word, as all religions and beliefs are part of the Creator’s Creation:

      “those qualities regarded as forming the definitive or typical elements in the character of a person, nation, or group or in the thought and attitudes of a particular period.”

      i like to think of it as an abundant, supportive, generous, kind and loving spirit in all its manifestations!


  3. I am 63 and this is the first opportunity that I have had “full into my lap” to learn the national anthem (I am ashamed to say). Better late than never. Thank you so much for your easy-to-understand presentation. I am going to teach my husband now 🙂

    1. That’s good Carol!
