Zonke’s unique sound
Despite not releasing new music in a while, Zonke has performed at several shows in the past year. She made an appearance at a family picnic event a GOG Park in Soweto late last year.
She also performed a private show on Valentine’s Day for Lerato Kganyago and her husband.
Since then, Zonke has been enjoying some downtime at home and recording new music.
Her last album, ‘L.O.V.E (Living Out Various Emotions)’, was released in 2018. The album was two years in the making.
Zonke’s fans are used to waiting between projects for her next offering. The wait is always worth it as the 42-year-old always delivers. She focuses on creating original music that her fans will enjoy for years to come.
“I live in a bubble where I quite frankly do not care about today’s sound and what is trending. I make music that will be relevant decades from now,” she told Sawubona in 2019.
Zonke produces and writes many of her own songs, ensuring her sound is authentic.
“I make music that is influenced by the past, but celebrates being alive today. What is exciting me is that time has allowed me to not only sing, but also to produce my own songs as well. That could only have happened in time!” she adds.
Zonke’s fans say no one compares to her unique sound. They are loving her new song ‘Lady’ and can’t wait to see what else she produces in the coming months.
Here’s a look at what others had to say about her new single on Twitter.
Zonke mara! 🔥🔥🔥 what a beautiful song! Loving it
