Bantwini has now donated his royalties to the charity to help support poor families.

The singer donated royalties from his remix of American singer Lauv’s ‘Modern Loneliness’ single. 

Bantwini released a remix of the global hit in May.  

The ‘Clap Your Hands’ hitmaker expressed his joy at being able to help the needy.

“It is an honour to play a meaningful role in the vital work that Ubuntu Pathways is doing. I am also grateful to Lauv for the opportunity to remix ‘Modern Loneliness’. Working with this gifted songwriter who takes his independent spirit into the realm of social impact is something I will never forget,” he reportedly said during his speech when handing out the donation. 

Lauv also shared how happy he was that his music is being used as a tool to help the less privileged.

“When the Modern Loneliness Remix EP was conceived I wanted to work with handpicked collaborators from around the world as a way of taking the message of ‘Modern Loneliness’ to many more people. I am very happy to be able to donate the royalties from the superb remix that Zakes did to an organisation like Ubuntu Pathways,” Lauv said.
