The 24-year-old Rotondwa Rambani, better known as Tondi Rams, recently released his eagerly anticipated single, entitled Caroline.
The singer hails from Makwarela. The single speaks to his personal account of the struggles of being blown away by a particular woman, yet wanting to protect his and her heart by taking it slowly. The single does not shy away from exceptional lyrical depth as he marries the ideas of pursuit, patience and self-discovery.
Caroline is a pop tune with a folk and dancehall feel, which will leave the fans smiling, moving their heads or swaying their hips. It draws particular inspiration from his experiences of the past two years on his journey of following his heart.
Tondi Rams is a singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist. He accredits his musical genes to his family’s influence from locking himself at a young age in his room while trying to replicate the musical process he had seen his elder brother perform. A performer at heart, Tondi Rams gives his childhood musical idols, Usher, Roxette and the late Michael Jackson, credit for generating the itch to entertain and perform.
He is out to win the hearts of ladies with his sincere notes that paint a picture of a love with the purest intentions. His hope is to display to the world the character of a man who loves genuinely and women being respected, honoured and valued for who they are and carrying a strong demeanour that resonates with the old-fashioned idea of a true gentleman. He is not afraid to be in the spotlight, easily capturing the room with his confidence.
In 2013, during his final year at music-production and sound-engineering school, Emendy Technology Institute, he won ‘Emendy’s Got Talent’, proving his undeniable talent to the judges and audience alike.
The single was co-produced by Tondi Rams and C-Tea, a Ghanaian producer and music artist. Caroline will be distributed to the fans for free on AudioMack and Soundcloud, and will also be for sale on iTunes, Google play, Amazon and other online music platforms.
He is also available on social networks. Fans can follow him @tondirams and on Facebook, at tondi rams.
