Zonke’s new album is set to blow you away.
Only singer and songwriter Zonke Dikana can take a hiatus of over three years and then come back with a new single and boom, it’s an instant hit. On April 20th Zonke released her first single Tonight off her upcoming album to be released this June. The single shot to number one on music charts and trended on social media. Just listening to it made us realise that the Queen of Mzansi song is back.
On the new album, L.O.V.E (Living Out Various Emotions) Dikana features a song with multi-award winning rapper Kwesta.
‘I featured Kwesta on one of the songs. The song is called Soul to Keep. He’s amazing. I’ve always loved Kwesta. When I listened to that song, I kept saying to my sister; ‘I’m hearing Kwesta on this, I think he’d be great on the song,’ she told True Love recently.
Dikana and Kwesta’s collabo is done and she is impressed with it. She is also quite impressed with Kwesta.
‘He came to the studio. I noticed he came alone, he didn’t bring an entourage. He was so early. I remember seeing a different car at the parking and I didn’t know it was him. When it was his call time, he just walked in. He’s such a nice guy; so talented and down to earth.’
Dikana says this album is inspired by love. And a happy kind of love. Dikana’s previous album Work of heart was a hit and we are certain this one will pull through too.
