Growing up as what she describes as a “citizen of the world,” singer-songwriter Zaki Ibrahim spent her childhood living at different times in Canada, South Africa, the United Kingdom, France and Lebanon. Currently based in Cape Town, she released her first full length album Every Opposite in 2012 and has now released a music video for one of the tracks on the album, Draw The Line.
“The draw the line story does show me, but not exactly. Coming from the Cape Flats and overcoming an environment with challenges such as poverty, drugs, sexual assault, and Post-Apartheid conditioning is no easy feat. Creating your own path and shining your light through adversity, taking everything that you’ve experienced and everything you are, is what the song is about.”- she says.
