In a video posted on the news site, Zonke, who is releasing her new album soon, said: "It's been a hectic past few months. A lot has happened. I've also been in studio drowning myself in music, drowning my sorrows away in music. Also, I felt that it's time I put out new material. It's been four years since my last album and also while I was busy recording that album, my sister Lulu passed away in December."
She said it's been tough: "It's not something that you just snap your fingers and get over. But it's a process and being in studio has helped me a lot... Music has a way of just massaging the pain and the fact that we did music together, you know, that was the connection. I feel like I feel her presence because that's what we shared."
She added that she remembers her late sister's teachings. "It's an ongoing struggle, some days are good, some days are not so good. I've got music and I thank God for that," she told eNCA.
