Another Rising star from KwaZulu Natal

Siphelele Shezi


From the beautiful hill of Kwazulu Natal, Senzo Afrika gives us an outstanding Afro Soul single, fusing afrobeats-style percussion with traditional Zulu lyricism and cadences makes for a singular, unique sound that has both local and international appeal.

The single Khumbul’ekhaya is the first from his upcoming album titled Valley Of 1000 Hills. The song uses a sparse beat, courtesy of the genre-defying Major League DJz to address the issue of migrant labor in the modern context -young men moving to the city, in this case eGoli (Johhanesburg) to further or pursue their careers. “The problem with our young people is that we leave our homes for a brighter future and end up being swallowed in the fast paces world of big cities, lights, women and fast cars” said Senzo.The single brings to light all these dynamics in a beautiful melodic single
