She has successfully pulled off three albums on major international labels and she recently won two SAMA awards for Best Live DVD and Best African Adult album. Her latest album ‘Work of Heart’ has received three Metro Fm nominations in the categories – Best Female, Best RnB and Best African Pop album.
All these achievements were not handed over on a platter of gold. She worked hard to attain great heights and that is the spirit of a true African woman.
