Singer leading indie-rock artist Shingai to headline Zim Achievers UK.
The music star’s performance is coming at a time when she just dropped a new track called Zimtron which is the second single from her debut EP Ancient Voices, after the successful run of the first single Coming Home, on 26 April and March, respectively. The track aptly sums up the various influences to her music and the versatility she carries as a performer and she expressed excitement at the opportunity to share her music again at the event.
It is the homecoming season and former Noisettes frontwoman, @Shingai will grace the stage at the 9thedition of the Zimbabwe Achievers Awards in London on the 25thof May as the headline performer at the awards gala.
“I am over the moon and excited to be performing at the ZimAchievers this year. I have had the privilege of attending the awards over the years and it always feels like I am at home when I am surrounded by, what has become such a tightknit community, who continue to shine and raise the Zimbabwe flag high,” said Shingai.
The British singer-songwriter who is of Zimbabwean descent and best known as the vocalist and bassist for the UK indie rock band Noisettes is celebrated today for carving her own unique style, both musically and through her image, setting trends with her fierce fashion sense and striking hairdos. Shingai’s first single from her album, Coming Home, had the video shot in the majestic Domboshava in Zimbabwe and bears testament to her authentic Zimbabwean flair and versatility as an artist who can blend various beats and cultures.
The video premiered last month and was covered in a BBC documentary by Ade Adepitan showcasing the country’s magnificent scenery, locations and vivacity of its people. Shingai, who paid tribute to her Zimbabwean roots, was keen on empowering local talent, brands and creatives and many of them were recruited for the video.
ZAA Founder @Conrad_Mwanza said, “We are honoured that Shingai will be part of this year’s awards. This event is as much a celebration to her for her hard work over the years as it is to all our nominees.”
