Kaya FM and Afro Soul Singer Simphiwe Dana have joined heads to give Simphiwe's followers a grand performance, one to be recorded in the books.
The station was part of her journey since her debut album Zandisile, Kaya FM played a significant role in giving her music air-play and in 2005 when Simphiwe won her first SAMA the radio station was there celebrating with her.
“The social activist within Simphiwe is what caught my attention many years ago when we first met. Her Firebrand album she recently launched and performed at Kaya FM so aptly describes Simphiwe, who I believe epitomises the Afropolitan women we strive to celebrate on a daily basis at Kaya FM. Dana’s timeless music has a strong social awakening which will remain relevant and celebrated for many more years to come in South Africa” said Greg Maloka, Managing Director at Kaya FM.
The Afro-soul songstress is said to be extremely elated with the media partnership she has managed to have Kaya FM and has chosen to return to The Bassline in Newtown for this celebratory event given that she also first launched her platinum selling debut album at the same venue 10 years ago.
"Music has allowed me to voice my opinions about the world I live in, and I am just truly grateful that the continent has been so receptive to my sound and story. Kaya FM has always been a major supporter of my music. Our brands are very similar in that we speak to the progressive, socially conscious citizen." says Simphiwe Dana
Simphiwe is said to perform new material from her SAMAXXI nominated album - Firebrand
