The singer and songwriter from Africa known as Zani Challe has released her new single, “Single Tonight.” The track has been proudly published on the 36ixty Media independent music label without the financial support of the corporate music industry. Warm, rhythmic, and full of the uplifting spirit of the Malawian culture and people, “Single Tonight” is the newest reason for fans new and old to be excited about Zani Challe.
In addition to the talents of Zani Challe, “Single Tonight” features Nigerian star Patoranking and famous producer, E Kelly.
Zani Challe cites as her main artistic influences Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Mary J. Blige and the afro- sound across music genres in general. Her “Single Tonight” track will find many friendly ears in the pop and afro-pop music categories, but it's also a track that lends itself well to radio and nightclub play and is making rounds in a wide variety of listening circles.
As might be presumed from the title, Zani Challe's “Single Tonight” has romantic themes at its heart.
“Most of my songs are love songs,” writes Challe, “and I basically write on what I feel and have experienced or what I have seen around me.”
The singer isn't all about romance, however. She's also enthusiastic about women's liberation and free speech. She explains, “My music and aim is to let people be comfortable and free to openly express what's on their minds and in their hearts. Especially women.”
Zani Challe was born in Cape Town, South Africa, to Malawian parents in 1988. In addition to her work as a singer and songwriter, Challe is also an accomplished actress, model, TV presenter, lyricist and recording artist. She became a radio DJ and producer in 2007 at Malawi's own Power 101 FM and began her solo music career in 2011. Since then she has performed with popular South African performers such as Emtee, Ifani, and Proverb. She has starred in TV commercials, TV shows (“The Dragons”) and in feature cinema (“Bleeding Heart”).
Her first debut single, “Gwada” feat. Okmalumkoolkat and RAS hit audiences and charts hard in 2014. It was followed by “Ndiphundzitse” which topped Malawian charts and was nominated for video of the year at the UMP Awards 2015.
“Single Tonight” by Zani Challe feat. Patoranking and prod. by E Kelly is available online worldwide now.
