The “Ngegazi Lemvana” hitmaker left the music industry in 2021, after 30 years, now her fans get to celebrate the Easter festivities with some of her most renowned songs.

“Music will always form an integral part of my life. It is through the art of music that I could celebrate, mourn, travel and take my talent to the world.

“I felt that Easter was the perfect opportunity for me to perform again as I get to connect with my supporters over such a special time as well as share my art with some of those who may have never had the opportunity to see me perform before,” said the songbird about her return to the stage.

The music legend was recently honoured with a “Lifetime Contribution In Gospel Music Industry of South Africa” award by the Cape Town International Gospel Festival.
