Now, this is the first a house song in church! DJ Zinhle’s song Umlilo which took the song of the year was quoted during a church sermon.
Umlilo became a hit in December and yes it kept us on the dance floor, we’ve been keeping the fire burning all throughout.
One thing we didn’t know is that as we were playing DJ Zinhle’s Jam our elders have been listening to it and enjoying it.
Not just any elders but church-going elders have been tapping their feet to it. A woman at Methodist church proved that to us as she quoted the track during a sermon.
DJ Zinhle shared a video on Twitter where an elderly woman can be seen preaching during the church sermon. As the woman is preaching she can be heard quoting the Umlilo lyrics.
Here’s the video below which she quoted is as “Iweseli elihle… This made my heart sooooo happy.”
Iweseli elihle… 🙏🏾
This made my heart sooooo happy. https://t.co/LYaPfMf29a

Wow!!! Ain’t it just beautiful the way she narrated the song? Umlilo uvutha ngamalangabi (the fire is burning) literally.
