MBABANE – South African music legend Sizwe Zako will be in the country to teach musicians how they can be successful in their music careers.

This will be during the Third Annual Music Workshop to be held at The George Hotel in Manzini on June 6, 2013. The workshop was launched in 2011 and first to facilitate it was Nqubeko Mbatha and his wife Ntokozo.

In 2012, Israel Mosehla was the facilitator during a workshop that was attended by over 200 musicians.
This year, Zako has been confirmed as one of the facilitators and would be joined by Mosehla who will be coming for the second time.


Nhlanhla Gamedze, the event coordinator, said they were targeting mostly praise and worship singers and band members of the different churches around the country.
“This year, we have asked Zako to come and inspire artists, especially those who are in the Gospel Music Industry. We want Zakho to help them identify their weak and strong points while still in this industry,” he said.

He said those who would attend the workshop would also get the opportunity to perform with Zako and Mosehla.
“After the workshop there would be what we call the jamming session where the artists would get the opportunity to sing alongside Zako. In the process, as a producer, he would take time to see if there is any artist to give a contract to.”


Gamedze said interested artists should start registering and they are expected to pay E150, which is a participation fee.
“Registration has been opened and we only have space for about 400 participants. We encourage the artists to start registering now as we will not be adding more participants,” h e said.

Zakho is not new to the local Music Industry as he took part during the Gospel Talent Search Show held three years ago.
This is where songbird Sinethemba Dlamini won a recording deal with Zako. He also worked with Healing Waters when they recorded their album which featured the song ‘Uhlalehleli’.
