After 17 years with Freshlyground, lead singer Zolani Mahola has announced that she is leaving the award-winning group and is setting her sights on a solo career.

She chats to Refilwe Moloto on what prompted her move.

It has been 17 wonderful years of working with the band. This new journey has come out of a process of really looking into myself and it is very exciting.

Zolani Mahola, Musician

She says one of the most outstanding performances was when the band performed with Stevie Wonder.

He is my favourite musician and when we were on stage with him for 46664 in Radiocity, New York, was just the most incredible highlight for me.

Zolani Mahola, Musician

This is not an end for Freshlyground, this is a new beginning for Zolani Mahola. Freshlyground is a brand and an entity that is always going to exist. We are always going to be collaborating with each other.

Zolani Mahola, Musician

What is happening now is that I am moving forward with my solo career and launching my public-speaking career.
