Zimbabwean Award winning Artist, Takura Shonhai can arguably be referred to as an exceptional Musician, both as a Solo Artist and as part of the Pop trio Soul Afrika. Coming from a humble background his dedication has been a marvel to witness as is evidenced in his Music on his E.P album ‘STRIPPED’ with the hit single ‘Zino Irema’ as a prime example, an anthem for the haters so to speak.

The undertaking sees Takura touring six places around Zimbabwe namely Gweru (his home town), Bulawayo, Mutare, Mutendi High (his former school), Masvingo (his birth town) and Harare and Cyprus Greece raising the bar for so many Zimbabwean Hip-Hop artists.
