News24 reports iconic songstress Yvonne Chaka Chaka recently launched the Chaka Chaka limited-edition homeware range with Woolworths representing the beauty of Africa.

The homeware collection draws inspiration from traditional African attires characterised by beautiful patterns and materials such as the Zulu traditional crown Isicholo, neckpieces important to the African culture, and the South African national flower also forms part of the inspiration.

The homeware collection is a reflection of Chaka Chaka’s elegant style and Africa’s beauty, it is designed in monochrome black and white with touches of gold flora featuring portraits of Chaka Chaka.

The range consists of a 12-piece dinner service, salad bowl, mug, cup and saucer, all made from porcelain, and also includes a teapot, salad bowl and charger plate.


The brainchild of legendary singer Chaka Chaka, the Backing Vocalists and Sessions Musicians (BVSM) Awards return after a two-year break to honour background musicians, reports Sunday World.

The awards recognsise backing vocalists and session musicians by bringing these artists to the forefront as they are usually cast in the shadows of the stage.

The Umqombothi hitmaker recalled in an interview with IOL that she was in the studio in 1987 and needed to add “flavour” to a song. A gentleman named Teaspoon, was called to play the saxophone which changed the song completely. She said her heart was broken when Teaspoon was paid R150 for a song that would later sell thousands of copies.

“These are the people who make us who we are. These are the people who make our songs sound beautiful, they give these songs life. Without the backing vocalist, the drummer, the pianist, or the bassist, the song would be incomplete.

“So, this is our way of saying to all of them, ‘we appreciate you, we see you, you are valuable in our lives, and we thank you for your contribution’,” said Chaka Chaka.

The fourth installment of the awards will be hosted at the Soweto Theatre in Jabulani on 5 February 2023 with 25 winners taking home R5000 each.
