After the pandemic in the year 2020, there were significant changes made in the corporate sector. This was one of the busiest years in the history of South African music, despite the fact that there were no longer any chances for live performances. The COVID-19 period was profitable for a lot of artists in terms of chart-topping songs; yet, it was a tough year for several musicians who decided to concentrate on their personal life instead of their professional careers. It's possible that some musicians are still hurting from the effects of the epidemic, despite the fact that it's over, given that they seem to have put their musical careers on indefinite hold for the time being.
You can find a list below of South African performers from a variety of genres that seem to be on sabbatical for an extended period of time.
• Cici: It has been said that Cici, an artist who is signed to Ambitiouz Entertainment and who is supposed to be taking a sabbatical from both her hectic professional and personal life, would be at the top of the list. She gave birth to her first kid in May of 2021, and shortly afterwards, she withdrew from public view. Cici released her album Sukulila only a few months later, and as of the writing of this article, she has not put anything new out in an official capacity as of yet.
• Busiswa: More and more people are questioning whether or not Busiswa should continue to hold his position as King of Amapiano. She continues to be a significant participant in the business despite the fact that she has been very quiet. The South African musician Busiswa collaborated with the Nigerian singer Naira Marley in the beginning of this year, and she makes a cameo appearance on the South African musician's most recent hit. She has not officially released anything else, and the songs fared badly on YouTube when they were uploaded there. Her popularity throughout the years 2019–2022 was equally dismal due to the fact that she only published one album for the whole of her career.
• Boity: The third actor is Boity, who is widely considered to be one of the most gorgeous actors working in South Africancinema. She has solidified her position as a significant figure in the hip-hop community over the course of many years. She has been putting a lot of effort into both her career and her personal life, but at the same time, she has been slacking off. They seen her perform not too long ago when she was the backup act for Miss SA202. Her followers had the impression that she was going to leverage the buzz to promote a new track, but she really went back to composing instead.
• Jerusalema singer Nomcebo Zikode is one of the few musicians who seems to have taken a sabbatical recently. She engaged in a number of heated arguments with Master KG and other South Africans on who should own the popular song. It would seem that the singer has returned to her own space after all of the hubbub, despite the fact that she had previously achieved success with Jerusalema.
• Shekhinah: Shekhinah is a South African hip hop artist that has been performing in the industry for a significant amount of time, although it seems that she has stopped doing so as of late. The year 2021 saw the publication of her most recent studio album, which was given the title "Trouble in Paradise." This year, she has not yet released a single or an album to the public.
• Fifi Cooper: Fifi Cooper, who has maintained a steady presence in the Hip Hop industry despite the fact that the pandemic caused a fall in her popularity, completes the top six. Despite this, her popularity fell during the epidemic. Throughout her postings on Instagram, she has broached a variety of themes, including personal space and performing in nightclubs.
• L-Tido: For a considerable amount of time, L-Tido was almost completely unknown. He expressed regret to his loyal following for the absence of new songs in 2021, but other than that, nothing came of it.
• Zahara: Since the year 2020, Zahara has been dealing with problems that are uniquely her own. After that, she was forced to attend the funeral of her older brother; after that, she was accused of violating lockdown regulations; after that, she found out she was pregnant; after that, her video was made public; after that, her prizes were stolen from her home; after that, she was in desperate need of money; and most recently, she was forced to postpone her performance because she became ill. They have faith that this will just be a brief setback for her, which is why they are standing by her side today.
• Toya Delazy: Toya Delazy, who comes in at number nine, has a significant amount of idle time that has to be filled. It's been quite some time since she was extensively discussed by those who work behind the scenes in the business. Since her most recent performance was at Afrorave Vol. 1, we shouldn't hold out hope that she will release any new songs before the end of the year.
• Prince Kaybee: His followers are aware that he is, in fact, taking a break, despite the fact that he gives every impression of being active. The most recent of his bold pledges was a vow that lasted just a short time to release a new song every month. In addition, he has not shown much activity on social media and has not had a hit song so far this year.
