Zoid’s Republic 

Karen Zoid is a powerhouse performer and composer who has gained critical acclaim for her music in both English and Afrikaans – with her early work having influenced an entire generation of South Africans.

All through her career, Karen has held onto an enviable integrity that allows her to speak her mind, and over the last few years South Africans became as familiar with her face, as they are with her voice, as the host of her flawless variety show, Republiek Van Zoid Afrika. 

Find out what makes this undisputed queen of SA rock ‘n’ roll an entrepreneurial and creative force to be reckoned with as she talks us through the blessings and pitfalls of her illustrious career.
