The second in the series of Melt 2000 albums that Amampondo recorded  Vuyani, will be out there on the music platforms of the internet on the 11th of December 2020. This album was the group's 7th album release (if you include their debut music-cassette only release). Vuyani was a studio project produced and engineered by Chris Lewis with Robert Trunce as executive producer.  The CD was issued in 1999.
