Zahara to collaborate with local singers

HARARE - South African musician Zahara has hinted on a free collaboration with local artistes, the Daily News can reveal.

Zahara is scheduled for a December 5 music concert set for Harare International Conference Centre (HICC) where she will share the stage with star singer Jah Prayzah and dendera sensation Suluman Chimbetu.

Show promoter, proprietor of Divine Assignments, Biggie Chinoperekwei said the Loliwe singer was excited about the possibility of collaborations.

“She hinted on some collaborations with local artistes. We had had enquiries from some local artistes who were exploring the possibility of collaborating with her and she was excited and promised to come on board. The final artistes she chooses will be completely up to her, and she is very keen about it,” he said.

Zahara will not only be collaborating with local artistes, but will also be launching her latest album, Country Girl at the HICC concert.

“It has become a tradition that when she comes here she unveils and launches her album. It works for her; hopefully it will work for us too. The album will be available for sale at the concert,” he said.

When she released her debut album Loliwe in 2011, she did it in style and away from home — she launched it in Botswana.
Zahara has five albums to her name Loliwe (2011), The Beginning Live (2012), Nelson Mandela (2013), Phendula (2013) and Country Girl (2015).

Her debut album Loliwe, went platinum in 13 days and double platinum after 17 days, selling over 100 000 copies in South Africa.

At the annual South African Music Awards (Sama), Zahara won eight awards, including Best Female Artiste and Album of the Year in 2012.

The musician has had a rough couple of months this year following the murder of her brother.

She admitted to have fought alcoholism following the tragedy.
