Simphiwe Dana exposes the roots of her influence.
The thing about gems or jewels is that they are few and far between. This is why we prize these rocks as treasure. ESSENCE dedicates it latest New & Next episode to one precious South African stone; the one known as Simphiwe Dana.
Underscored by her rich and textured new single, “Sarah Selah”, Dana spills on her soundtrack-accompanied upbringing, the inexplicable nature of her music and her intimate new sinlgle. It’s Simphiwe Dana like you’ve never seen her before.
She may be new to her newfound US fan base following her crossover at the middle of the year but we, her fellow countrymen, have always known she’d be the next best thing.
