Singer and songwriter Amanda Black has sparked speculation that she is pregnant after appearing with a visible baby bump at the launch of her new album, From My Soil to Yours.

Black looked refreshingly radiant in a flowing yellow two-piece at the intimate gathering held at a restaurant in Sandton, Johannesburg. While she did not directly address the pregnancy rumours, her comments hinted at a significant change in her life.

“I’m in a new chapter of my life,” she said during her launch. “A very interesting one.”  She added, “It’s been quite a journey getting here. Man, it’s been tough. There’s been a lot of fights and tears, but we are here.”

Confidential sources close to Black have exclusively revealed to ZiMoja that she is pregnant.


A close friend and colleague of the “Amazulu” hit artist stated, “She is definitely pregnant and in the second trimester. Everyone can see the baby bump. It’s impossible to hide at this stage.”

The source added, “A pregnancy is not really something you can hide for too long. But also, she is not really hiding it because her tummy is big; she is showing, but no one has had the guts to ask her whether it’s just a beer belly or what?”

Another friend from the music industry revealed that this will be Black’s first child, and the pregnancy hasn’t been an easy one.

“She was still working on her album in the first trimester, morning sicknesses, the works,” the friend said. “So, it was tough for her.”

They added, “It was a stretch getting to the end of her album; even at the listening session, she was tired, but she pushed. Her team tucks by her despite the emotions. She is somehow happy and ready to be a mom.”

When contacted for comment, Black’s management company at Sony declined to confirm or deny the pregnancy rumours.

“We don’t really deal with people’s personal relations on that level, especially something of the sort,” a spokesperson said. “We are in the business of music. Whether she is or isn’t, she would need to answer those types of questions.”

Fans eagerly await any word from Black regarding the pregnancy rumours, which have become a hot topic of discussion on social media and in the press. This has, understandably, been fueled by her recent cryptic statements, loose-fitting wardrobe choices, and, more evidently, her growing baby bump.
