Universal South Africa has awarded TRESOR Riziky with a gold plaque and double platinum plaque for his songwriting contribution to Zahara’s multi-platinum selling album, Phendula.
“I am totally excited about receiving these platinum plaques for my work on Zahara’s sophomore album from Universal Music Group. It’s a dream come true. Working with Zahara and her producers Robbie Malinga and Mjakes of Hit House Records was really amazing, probably the best experience of my music career to date” shares TRESOR Riziky.
