“Finally sharing the birth of the highly anticipated collaboration between myself and Sam Deep – ‘Kwakhanya.’ This project represents merging the two different worlds of spirituality and religion, healing individuals facing obstacles in their daily lives. We are depicting the power of being guided and protected by God and our ancestors. In those words ngithi sukumani Makhosazana, ngisho nina boMasango, boMwelase, Mazibuko, Zintu zomkonto. KWAKUHLE, KWAMHLOPHE, KWAKHANYA!”

“Kwakhanya,” a Xhosa word meaning “God brings light” or “enlightenment,” promises to deliver a profound musical experience that resonates with listeners on a spiritual level.

Azana, known offstage as Makhosazana Princess Masango, has captivated audiences with her soulful vocals and poignant songwriting. With a string of successful releases under her belt, she continues to be a prominent figure in the South African music scene.
