Born Onkabetse John Hlongwane, K-Zaka is excited to announce the release of his long awaited single titled Qhubeka. On the song, he features two talented artists – Lue and Nkosi K. The song is a fusion of Amapiano and Afro-pop. Accompanied by some great vocals carrying a great message that encourages everyone to keep chasing their dreams no matter the challenges. The song is available to download and stream on all digital platforms and has been playlisted on several radio stations around the world, with the UK taking lead.
The name of the song, Qhubeka, is an Isizulu word that means ‘move on, and it was inspired by the modern use of the term ‘we move’, which is popular amongst today’s youth. Qhubeka is more than just a song; it is an affirmation to keep things moving no matter what. Every component of the song comes from a meaningful place as all the artists involved connected deeply with themselves when putting it together.
“The energies in the studio were aligned when we were recording this masterpiece. My contribution to the song was inspired by all the turmoil I went through in 2021. I reflected on everything that happened in my life and summed it all up. No matter how hard things may seem – it’s always best to ‘move on and focus on exploring new opportunities,” says Lue.
If there’s one thing I’m going to do, it will be putting my hometown – Northam in Limpopo on the map. 🇿🇦 ✈️ 🌎

This song will leave you with a positive message while making you dance. “I strongly believe that people will relate to the song as it is a ‘feel-good’ song that is aimed at encouraging people to stop dwelling on the negative. Especially with all the challenges we face due to the Covid 19 pandemic. This single is a synergy of great vocals, a catchy beat, positive lyrics and beautiful melodies.
