Visiting South African singer Zonke was the star attraction at the second edition of the Tusker Malt Club 100 affair at the Arboretum.
Tusker Malt Lager club members packed the lounge style set up at the gardens. The show started off with Eddy Grey and his band and later the star attraction of the night took the stage at 9pm.
The singer performed singles off her two albums Ina Ethe (Give and Take in Isixhosa) and Life, Love and Music. The music volume had to be toned down due to the venue's proximity to State House and the subsequent requests - or commands - by the state house security to lower the volume.
"Every artiste dreams of crossing borders with their music. I just jumped to the opportunity to be here," said Zonke. Her big break came when a producer hooked her up with a German band called Jazz Cantina. She wrote a track for them called Africa My Motherland.
Her new album titled Ina Ethe has gone double platinum. Zonke described the album as "my best work to date" and that "it came from a sincere place, I allowed people to know about myself. That is why the truth resonated with the fans."
She is a UN goodwill ambassador who has "adopted her old high school where she supplies computers" to aid in their education.
