Six years off track, Sama award winning afro-soul singer Siphokazi Maraqana who is now Mohapi by marriage is ready to pick up the mic once again.
Siphokazi is making a comeback to the entertainment industry after taking a six-year break to focus on her family.
The singer who got married to a banker named Hlalele Mohapi decided to channel her energy towards her two sons.
Thus, she stopped producing music even though she was still getting bookings from churches.
Speaking to Sowetan yesterday, she said: “I wanted to focus on my family and be settled. But while I was raising my kids, I was getting a lot of corporate and church bookings. Since my music is timeless, I knew that my fans would not miss me that much.”
Afro-soul singer Siphokazi is returning with a single titled Ithemba which will be officially released today. Fans can’t wait to get their hands on the latest album of the star who last released an album in 2010.

From all indications, the singer put in her best in the new song which she used as a medium to preach hope. She also revealed that she drew her inspiration for the song from the Bible.
“I looked at the situation globally and the issues of drought, and how they have forced people to adjust to certain environments. But I was also forced to write about hope because of the increasing level of abuse towards women and children, the racial intolerance as well as poverty.
“Most of these things that are happening are things that we cannot just wish away. But with hope, God will respond and help us.”
Despite being away for too long, she also promised to flow with the trend in the industry.
