This year Guardian Angel’s wand landed on the magnificent Manolo. His soulful melodious sound, well complemented by his mastery in rap makes him one versatile easy to love artist.

The song is a beautiful confession of how God got gripped onto their hearts with his grace and unconditional love.

Shot in low light with perfect balance on closet choice of colour plus a good dance, choreography, the video screams blissful attention. ‘Kamata’ is a definite hit single.
