Cape Town - Big Concerts on Monday confirmed that R&B/Soul singer Zonke will be supporting the iconic Lionel Richie on his South African tour dates in March.

Multi-platinum award winning singer Zonke has carved out a distinctive position in the musical landscape.

She’s one of South Africa’s biggest stars and not only performs but also writes and produces her own material.

Zonke Dikana has long been one of the most accomplished songwriters on the SA music scene and has written and co-written hits for dance artist Winnie Khumalo, kwaito rapper Thebe, late R&B star TK and also worked with legends like Bongo Maffin and Oskido.

With three albums on major international labels under her belt she recently won two acclaimed SAMA awards for Best Live DVD and Best African Adult album. Her latest album Work of Heart has received three Metro Fm nominations in the categories Best Female, Best RnB and Best African Pop album.

“I am looking forward to delighting audiences with all-time favourites and new soul hits off my latest album titled Work of Heart. And I am especially excited to be sharing the stage with Lionel Ritchie who I have admired for taking pride in his art. This is an opportunity for South Africans to experience a quality production,” she said.
