She is said to be the “next-best-thing” to hit the music scene and after one listen to her song ‘Loliwe’, I agree.

Zahara is the name of this artist with an amazing voice. She is signed under DJ Sbu and TK Nciza’s record lable TS Records (glad to see they have something new brewing).

Zahara also laid down the vocals to DJ Sbu‘s current smash hit “Lengoma”, that’s getting massive airplay. I think it’s going to be a big hit this Spring.

There is just something about Zahara‘s voice that’s so unique. You can’t exactly compare to the likes of Lira, Simphiwe Dana and Siphokazi…although many already think she is set to topple Lira as South Africa’s favorite songbird.

Peep her ‘Loliwe’ video below…(Big Brother Amplified finalist Luclay is featured in the video)

    Sbu and TK…PLEASE talent as raw as this one doesnt come often, guys please take care of her. I say this because i am a failed musician in my own right with talent cause my parents wanted me to have what they call a solid proffesion and i do have one but i am still empty and longing for music and performances… this beautiful is slowly filling this hole in me. You will perform for the Queen’s and Kings of this WORLD, your message hits the heart from a mile.I am already waiting for the next one hopefully this Decemeber you will bless us again!!!
