Zonke

 

The South African record producer and singer-songwriter Zonke Dikana grew up in Port Elizabeth before she relocated to Johannesburg while she was aspiring to break into the music entertainment industry in the late Nineties. As if music flows in her family, Vuyisile Dikana, who is Zonke's father, used to be a drummer with a group known as Black Slave and the Flamingo, while her late stepmom also used to sing for a musical band called Joy.

According to Zonke, she owes most of what she knows about music today to her father. It was while under his tutelage that she learned the theory of composition as well as the dynamics of the music industry. Her inspiration for success in the music industry and business world is traceable to her father who built and polished her on how to become a force to be reckoned with in a highly competitive industry.

Zonke Dikana went to Masiphatisani High in Motherwell before she gained admission to study Human Resource Management at the University of Bloemfontein, and she bagged a degree in 1997. Her rise to stardom can be traced to when Zonke Ina Ethe album was released in 2011. This third album of hers got double-platinum certification and also made her get a nomination during the 18th South African Music Awards (SAMA). After she wrote "Africa, My Motherland" for Jazzkantine, a Germany-based band, Zonke had her big break.
