The rich timbre of Azana’s voice is akin to royalty, much like the names given to her by her family, Makhosazana and Princess (which have the same meaning), Azana is derived from her first name. The singer-songwriter from Durban, KwaZulu Natal first caught the people’s attention as the featured vocalist on Sun-El Musician’s “Uhuru”, but it was her own debut single “Your Love” which solidified her seat at the throne. The single is currently one of the most streamed songs in South Africa, and has also been enjoying reasonable radio and TV airplay. Her debut album Ingoma touches on themes of love, women empowerment and spirituality/religion. With the release of more singles from the album, which should happen in 2021, her reign is to continue and extend to other territories as well.
