Success in music is a combination of talent and sometimes luck, great artistes all over the world once confessed. And there is some truth in this but though luck helps, there is much more to the work that is put and who you do it with.
This is something 26-year-old Zimbabwean artiste Sha Sha alias Queen of Amapiano knows all too well. At her age, she is one of the renowned artists in Shonaland and one of several other Zimbabwean artistes to have record breaking collabos with big names outside Zimbabwe.
Early this year, she did ‘Tender Love’ a mind-blowing collabo with South African record producer DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small.
When Sha Sha sings, her voice rivals great American pop stars. Her vocals are powerful and charismatic too, something she brought out very well in ‘Tender Love’. The song so far has garnered 4.6 million views on YouTube.
The beats are a strong fusion of Zimbabwe-South Africa style, you couldn’t expect less with Dj Maphorisa in the mix. The song secured Sha Sha the prestigious Viewer's Choice: Best New International Act at the BET Awards a while back. She is the first Zimbabwean artiste to bring such an award home.
