South African musician, writer, acitivst and mom, Simphiwe Dana jetted in the country yesterday ahead of her album launch at the Koroga Festival on Sunday 9th. The album will however be available for sale from the 24th of this month.

Its not everyday you get to hear that an internationally acclaimed, non-Kenyan artist has chosen to launch their album in Kenya and we must say that this is an honor to Kenyans.


Firebrand will be made available for fans to pre-order on iTunes across the continent, and around the world on 10 November 2014 to coincide with the launch in Kenya.

Simphiwe left many South Africans wondering why she chose Kenya of all countries to launch her fourth album Firebrand, but she replied by saying that “Because the world is so big”.

Simphiwe just got back to Africa from the US where she together with fellow South African Musicians Hugh Masekela, Hip Hop artist Tumi and the Acapella group The Soil gave a rousing performance at the famous Apollo theater for the Saturday Night ‘Africa Now’ Festival.
