This gorgeous, incredibly successful singer-songwriter is rocking our airwaves… but she’s still got time for…
Joburg based Zinah is ready to wow the music industry with her latest single, Ever Been. Since beginning her journey at the age of seven when she decided the arts was her calling, she’s never looked back and has seen her passion take her to Europe as part of the Whitney Houston tribute shows in late 2016. Most recently, she set to the stage as the host of Born To Perform 2019 Shineat the Monte Casino Teatro and now she’s putting all her energy into releasing her original work. This is what a typical Friday in Zinah’s life looks like.

I wake up and shower, but I usually check my cupboard first to see what I’m going to wear for the particular shoot I have scheduled for that day. I then put my makeup on and get dressed.
I don’t usually eat in the mornings if I have a shoot – I always eat afterwards. But I always drink hot water with lemon and honey because it warms my voice up and clears my throat. It also brings a brightness to my skin!
This is the time I’d arrive at location we’ll be shooting at. Because I know the camera crew is still setting up, I sit in the car and just run through my script on my own and mentally prepare myself for the job.
At this point, the producer would run the script with me and check if I’m saying certain things the right way for putting the right emphasis or the correct syllables, etc. We then start playing with camera angles to see if they work with the light.

It usually doesn’t take long to shoot the inserts they need for a particular video. In this case, it would take about an hour or hour and a half.
My musical theatre class begins at this time. My first girls’ group is an hour. I then have a private lesson with another student doing performance arts of musical theatre preparing for their exams.
My Fridays are always relaxed. Well, I try keep them relaxed because I teach on a Saturday morning at 08h30. So, I’ll grab a glass of wine and watch a movie in my room and pass out from there.
