Because We AreMzansi All-Stars
00:00 / 03:39


This is a song for all of us. 

For our mothers and fathers. 

For our guardians, our sisters and brothers. 

This is a song for our neighbours, our friends, and our foes.

For our children who have been so brave, resilient and adaptable.

This is a song for all of us who have lost loved ones.

For all of us who continue to sacrifice, who struggle every day.

This is a reminder that we have been through SO much, but that we WILL get through this - just as we have before.  

This song is an invitation to dream a better nation and a better world. 

This is a call for us to act to make this dream come true. 


Every one of all of us.

Zolani is a true South African icon. A story-teller, a thought leader, a creative pioneer, an entrepreneur, a song-writer and (of course) a singer. An African treasure, Zolani has stood on some of the biggest stages around the world, alongside some of the most powerful personalities on the planet.


And so, it was an extraordinary privilege to host Zolani on the Heavy Chef stage, hearing her amazing story, listening to Zolani weave her iconic back catalogue, as well scintillating new songs, into the fabric of her own story, a parable for the South African story at large.
