Entitled ‘Gift and Take’ - the translated title of her second album ‘Ina Ethe’ - Zonke said of the recorded live show: “I wanted to create an atmosphere as if the audience was seated in my home. The set design was built around the look and feel of a large entertainment room in my created mansion.

“The audience are the VIP guests and I am here to tell my story.

“2012 and 2013 have been amazing for me and people have been asking me to release a DVD, so I thought: why not.”

And of her journey as a musician, she added: “Sometimes an artist feels like people are not responding. I took time to look within myself to see what about me was not appealing to people and that’s when I wrote ‘Jik’izinto’.

“The song came at a turning point in my life when I was beginning to think positively. My belief in God was restored and I stayed true to my craft.

“I stopped paying attention to people who were saying I sound American, especially when it’s obvious R&B has a place in this country.”
