Zolani Mahola, is the lead vocalist of Freshlyground a rainbow nation band consisting of members from different musical, social and racial backgrounds. Freshlyground was the opening act for UK pop star Robbie Williams’ South African tour in 2006. They followed that up by giving the world a sample of the South African vibe at the Fifa World up closing ceremony in Germany. They also went on to scoop the 2006 MTV Europe Music Award for Best African Act. Most recently Zolani and Freshlyground teamed up with World renowned singer Shakira in producing the 2010 Football World Cup anthem Waka Waka.
|She's always been a natural hair kind of girl, she looks gorgeous in maxi dresses and you can see her in the picture on the right, in her sneaker and dress kind of look.|
She is my fashion icon of choice for this week because of the bold fashion choices she makes. From the time that she entered the 'celebrity scene' she has always made fashion choices that have set her apart from the mainstream and have defied the rules of what “lead vocalist’s” are supposed to wear. She’s an All-Star sneakers and dress kind of girl. A tank top and jeans kind of girl, even when dressed up she does so with her own panache and you will not find her fashion combination's on anyone else. Her fashion choices have a uniquely Zolani stamp and no matter what she’s dressed in, its not difficult to see that she’s comfortable in her own skin. Below you'll find the official Waka Waka music video with Shakira and Freshlyground.
