South African superstar Zahara has announced the release of her fifth studio album. The lead single named Nyamezela will be released on 7 May.
The multiple SAMA award-winning singer/songwriter explains that the song is about holding onto hope, even through days of adversity. It is a song she believes many will relate to.”I think it’s what we all need right now – a ray of hope during these trying times. I hope you like It,” says Zahara.
The track was recorded with her long-time producer Mojalefa ‘Mjakes’ Thebe in Johannesburg. Mjakes has been instrumental in Zahara’s career and has worked with the songstress since her debut album, proving that they have a winning formula.
Vusi Leeuw, A&R Manager: Urban at Warner Music South Africa adds, “Like her fans around the world, we are excited to be part of this next chapter in Zahara’s extraordinary musical journey. She is ready to inspire and uplift us once more.”
Her fifth studio album, which is still to be titled, is slated for release in June 2021.
