In her own word, Berita is following the footsteps of Myriam Makeba by exporting her brand of AfroSoul music to the world. Of Zimbabwe origin now based in South African, the stunning songstress’s musical parcours is a straight-to-the-stars inspiring journey of self determination, drive and passion for her art-form manifested through her powerful voice, guitar and songwriting skills.
She has released 3 albums, won multiple awards and navigated through various musical worlds via collaborations with the greatest such as Yvonne Shaka Shaka, Oliver Mtukudzi and the late Jazz legend Hugh Masekela. No less!
As this was not enough, she also managed to venture on the cutting edge of electronic music by teaming up with House legend Oskido and Durban’s fast rising DJ/Percussion phenomenal duo Black Motion.
In less than 5 years, BERITA is now is a recognised and respected gold selling artist on the South African music circuit. Not bad for a girl who spend her first years growing up on a farm in Zimbabwe to later emigrate to New Zealand with her family in search of greener pasture.
