I am back in South Africa. I am in Joburg at the moment. When I was in hospital for three weeks, that did not affect my lungs but my liver a bit.

Pumeza Matshikiza. Musician

I am still based in Berlin, Germany. When Covid-19 hit it was like a dream. We were getting emails that concerts were cancelled. There are heartaches, it happens. But in Germany life has gone back to normal.

Pumeza Matshikiza, Musician

Opera turns to be subdued, so it is difficult to get back after that [do no other genres]. For the solo concert, I am also going to do Spanish and Italian songs, they have an African flair.
