Test: Zoë Modiga talks life, her career and her sophomore album #Inganekwane

GLAMOUR: Who would your dream musical collaboration be with and why?

GLAMOUR: Is there any chance that you will be doing any live shows virtually?

Zoë: I’ve been looking into that idea and I’m trying to find the best possible way around it. Open to suggestions. I have done the Militia, Urban Sessions and that is still available on their website:
