Award-winning Zimbabwean-born artist Berita Khumalo

The 21 year-old who is pretty much unknown in her home country has had critical acclaim from her 10-track album produced by well-known gospel artist Thami Mdluli. Likened to multi-award winning star Zahara, Berita also plays the guitar and sings afro-soul in Xhosa as well as  isiNdebele. Her song Thandolwethu is probably as central to her meteoric rise as Zahara’s Loliwe.

We hope that some promoter will be bringing to these neck of the woods soon.

To her, we say congratulations to her. Zimbabwe is so proud of the girl from Nketa 6.

She’s hot too. That helps!
