She’s been teasing us for weeks but Zahara has finally released her highly-anticipated fourth studio album ‘Mgodi’. The album, produced by Mjalefa ‘Mjakes’ Thebe, was recorded in Johannesburg over the past few months and fans are excited that they’re finally able to get their hands on new music from the star.

On ‘Mgodi’, Zahara weaves a story of liberation from struggle through love, faith and strength across 12 epic tracks. The title track serves as the lead single off the project and social media has had some very kind things to say about the track and Zahara’s return. It’s universal theme of one hiding from hurt, before escaping those burdens through friendship and faith is one many South Africans identify with making it the perfect lead single. Mjalefa ‘Mjakes’ Thebe’s subtle production allows for intricate interplay between lead guitar and lush strings.

The record shows Zahara at her very best and has certainly been worth the wait. ‘Mgodi’ is out now on all major digital platforms as well as Musica stores around the country.
