Songstress Zolani Mohola has announced that she is leaving Freshlyground after 17 years with the band.
The Nomvula singer revealed that she is launching her career as a solo artist. She said she will be devoting more time to the public and doing some motivational speaking.
“At the end of the year I’ll be taking my leave of Freshlyground and focusing on my solo work as well as being involved in public speaking – motivational and for corporates,” she said.
Zolani also revealed that she is going to switch up her music. “They’ll be folk music and I’m planning on drawing on different influences and traditions like American folk and South African folk,” she said.
Freshlyground gained international recognition when they collaborated with Shakira in the much loved 2010 FIFA Worldcup song Waka Waka (This Time for Africa). They performed the song with millions of people across the world watching.
