Durban – An internationally acclaimed cappella group, Ledmishth Black Membazo, will sing with former President Jacob Zuma when he recorded his favorite stroll songs in Durban, his manager Zolani Mazowie confirmed.

Last week, the University of Equavici D.A.V. The Municipality's Parks, the Recreation and Culture Department, pledged to ignore Zuma's singing record to record the recording of the song.

"This record deal is very resistant, where people's money will be used to benefit the former president's lifestyle," said DA councilor Nicole Graham.

Parks, Recreation and Culture, head of Ethikwini of Dhammikosi Ngcobo, said that he had approached the popular group to be part of the Durban collective songwriter to support Zuma, but the group went ahead, proceeding to offer the studio its recording for the project. .

Majoji said that these groups will record some songs with Zuma, the relationship with his leader Joseph Shabalala has turned to a struggle against hell.

"Even today, they are still best friends. For many years, the music of Membazo was to maintain culture and heritage, so we felt that if municipality wants to maintain the history of string songs, it would be important to participate in it for us.

He said that Juma group's studio was used to record about the 2014 Grammy Award-winning Singing for the World album.

Majuji said that "The studio also created the 2018 Grammy Award-winning Zulu Revived Album."

"We've used that studio to record with the Kirk Whalam, Lira, and Sailiff Kita for Oliver Tembo Shatabdi.

"We are also looking for how to do one or two songs with Zuma," he said.

Ngcobo said 12 musicians and groups were volunteer to be part of choir.

"DJ Sox had approached me about the possibility of adding a gqomu and the funeral sent us a message showing interest to work with Zuma. Our creative team is very excited," he said.

Last week, NJCBCO funded the project, which is expected to start in April, will come from the $ 25 million budget for "art and living culture", which was approved by municipality for various art projects.

FICIL Mbalula, member of the ANC National Executive Committee, welcomed this idea. He said that Zuma will be featured exclusively on the ANC album recorded on Friday.

"I think the Jazz (Jacob Zuma) album will be fireworks because it will sing the Umlaba voice (our land)."
