About Zonke Dikana
Zonke Dikana was born in Port Elizabeth, but now resides in Fourways, Johannesburg. She studied Human Resources Management at the University of Bloemfontein.
Zonke comes from a talented family in all aspects such as music, fine art and story writing. Her father Vuyisile Dikana was a talented drummer, and featured on one of Simply Red’s albums and her mother Fundie Peter was a medical technologist/writer. Zonke’s eldest sister Siwe is a regulatory reporting and compliance specialist for a financial institution, while her other sister Lulu is in musical theatre, and youngest sister Asanda is currenly studying for a Bcom Degree.
Zonke Dikana says her late father, whom she pays tribute to in her song “Viva Legend,” is the reason why she is a singer today.
Zonke believes the one thing she is unable to live without is love.
Zonke Dikana's new album Work of Heart is set to be released on 11 September 2015.
The multi-award winning R&B/Soul superstar is at a tipping point in her career with Work of Heart representing more than a culmination of Zonke's recent experiences but a catalyst anticipating the far-reaching ripple effects of its magnificence, artistry and relevance.
Following her own journey of success with remarkably high standards of quality in everything she creates, Work of Heart is no exception in raising the benchmark for SA music across the continent.
Zonke's strength and resilience through life’s turbulent waves has allowed her to emerge into an even better, stronger, a more talented, more spectacular version of herself.
Work of Heart gives us a glimpse of that greatness channelled through music. "I write from the heart – I write for my fans – I write about what matters to me and I know someone out there is finding something in there for them", says Zonke.
