South African jazz sensation Zahara is expected in the country tomorrow afternoon ahead of her performance at Star FM People’s Choice Awards ceremony at Harare International Conference Centre.

She has fallen in love with Harare and she says so every time she comes to the capital city.

It is set to be a colourful event as Zahara unveils her new baby to her local followers.

“Country Girl” has 13 tracks and is Zahara’s third studio album after “Loliwe” and “Phendula’’

“Zahara jets in on Saturday (tomorrow) afternoon and we are ready for the show. We are expecting a good event and people will have fun on the night. It will be a memorable night as Zahara unveils her new album in Zimbabwe,” said a spokesperson of Divine Assignments.

“The success of the current album should inspire Zahara stage a memorable act at the People’s Choice Awards.”

The awards categories include Businessperson of the Year, Most Influential Person Under 40, Artist of the Year, Sportperson of the Year and Album of the Year among others.
