“I appreciate and acknowledge the strides of women in leadership who have carried out change not only through words but also in their actions, like Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Winnie Mandela, Sibongile Mazibuko, Zozibini Tunzi etc., these .women have stood tall by addressing issues that affect people’s lives. I also have immense respect for the women who nourished our souls with beautiful sounds and melodies like Dorothy Masuka, Letta Mbuli, Mama Africa and Sibongile Khumalo. We have carried every word, and every sound and this will reflect in my performance.” Says Zoe the Seed.
