Zaki Ibrahim is a Canadian neo-soul singer with a wide-ranging style that encompasses hip-hop and spoken word as well as jazz and world music. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, she is the daughter of a South African father and a Scottish mother. While growing up she traveled back and forth from Canada to South Africa, where she spent a lot of time in Cape Town. She later based herself in Toronto and embarked on a musical career. Ibrahim co-founded the label District Six Music and made her commercial recording debut with Shö: Iqra in Orange (2006), a ten-track EP. A couple years later she returned with Eclectica (Episodes in Purple) (2008), an eight-track EP released in association with the Sony Music subsidiary Red Ink Music. Her song “Money” was nominated for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year at the JUNO Awards in 2009. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi.

Aforementioned facts are taken from her Bio on Itunes…and now it’s time for tha downlow. I stumbled upon her latest video for the track Money (King Britt Remix)  on the Mintcollective and was immediately alarmed to do a little research. I Have to say I was pleasantly surprised with my findings. This young lady has a most refreshing sound and very soulfull voice. My adviceis….do visit her My Space and or Website cause I promise you…you will enjoy everything from audio to video.
