After having a massive break-out back up from SA House Music maestro, Black Coffee. Zano took over the airwaves and dancefloors around the country and beyond our borders with his single “Hello” in 2008. This was the beginning of an amazing journey for Zano who is a singer, songwriter, music producer, and Creative Director at Klean Kut Kreatives. This week ‘On The Spot Light’, we have a ‘one on one’ with the massively talented ‘Zano’ just to find out what he has been up to. This is our artist ‘On The Spot’ and we welcome you to it…
Sho!Mag: Thank you for taking time out to talk to us. The first question which jumps into mind at the mention of that name ‘Zano’ for me is, what is Zano’s real name and where is he from?
Zano: My real name is Thokozani Nzima all the way from eMbalenhle in the Mpumalanga Province. I was given the name Zano by the late Lebo Mathosa and Shota who I was signed to at that time.
Sho!Mag: For the benefit of those who not familiar with ‘Zano’. What do you do in the music industry? Are you a music producer, deejay or a vocalist and why did you choose to that?
Zano: I’m a singer, songwriter, and music producer who happens to also sing J. My passion is in more behind the scenes work although obviously that took more centre stage. I don’t think I chose these music fields, ‘I honestly think music chose me’. This is why I’ve always taken music as a calling.’Am only a messenger’.
