The Into ingawe hitmaker recently went double platinum for the song, Ami was also awarded a gold status for her hit single inde lendlela. Ami has made a name for herself and dominated the music industry in just a short period of time. The sing bird was nominated for a whopping four awards and although she did not win all four we’re super proud of her.
