The lady with the golden voice, Zahara
It’s been a long, tiring but successful journey for the young South African.
As for Africa Unplugged, she went, saw and captured the world’s imagination.
Zahara also proved that the continent still has loads of talent, and that Africa can always rally behind its own.
The organizers sought to use the platform to highlight a tiny fraction of the continent’s challenges which include but not limited to war, malaria, and lack of access to portable drinking water. With the reviews it has had so far, they’ve more than achieved that.
And to think that Fally Ipupa, one of the main acts billed to perform at the event couldn’t make it due to reasons the organizers say was “Congo’s current political climate”, made Africa Unplugged a beautiful coincidence and marriage, with Africa’s challenges on one side, and the success and message of the concert, on the other.
