Shasha

Pursuing her music professionally and having her singles hit the airwaves in Zimbabwe as an RnB senstation, Sha Sha moved to South Africa. She started doing gigs, grew a fan base and eventually things changed when she was introduced to award winning producer Dj Maphorisa. Thereafter Sha Sha featured on songs like "NgeThanda Wena" by the Scorpion Kings and "Akulaleki" by Samthing Soweto, with these she managed to find herself on top of the Amapiano charts & was dubbed "Queen of Amapiano".


In 2020 after putting in work through focus and dedication Sha Sha proclaimed the BET Award for Viewers' Choice: Best New International Act winner. This all came after a string of monumental achievements such as her BLOSSOM EP release and multiple award nominations such as the SAMA nomination for Best Collaboration for “Tender Love featuring DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small”. Currently she is a nominee for the upcoming (date TBC) MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs) in the Listener’s Choice Category.

Sha Sha has been making moves of late and has managed to feature on the latest episode of The Ebro Show on apple music. She features talking about her journey in the AMAPIANO sphere and being an African, Zimbabwean woman doing well. She has also featured on the Africa month campaign with exclusive playlist of her favorite music. With the eyes and ears of the world currently on Africa, Apple Music is celebrating Africa Month this May with a campaign themed around Umoja and a message of unity and togetherness. The campaign also shines a spotlight on the new generation of African artists who are changing the narrative in the music industry locally and abroad. The campaign features an exclusive Africa Month Umoja playlist which includes some of the best cross-continental collaborations in recent memory, with music from Focalistic & Davido, Naira Marley & Busiswa, Gyakie feat. Omah Lay as well as AKA feat. Burna Boy.

“I picked these songs because they easily represent the growth of Afrobeats over the years over the years, showing how diverse the genre's sound is. I curated this playlist to display that diversity in sound and each song has its own impact story on afrobeat," Omahlay told applemusic.

"These songs transport me to different times in my life and remind me of how music is able to take you back to a particular place and feeling" - Tems

"What I love most about these songs is their afrocentric nuance. There is a rythm and energy about Africa that probably best expressed througg our music. I'd like everyone else to tap in to these sounds that reflect our strength than beauty as Africans. Africa month symbolizes what it stands for and listen to everyday while relaxing, vibing and hangout. Idefinitely sharing my playlist with everyone and Africa month is the best time to do so because African music speaks to me. I hope this speaks to you too" - Sha Sha


Her picks for Africa Month include songs by Amanda Black, Rotimi, Tiwa Savage, and Tellaman that possess an Afrocentric nuance. Check out Sha Sha's playlist below:
