Umkhokha has been that viewers’ gift that keeps on giving.

We are proud to have worked with such talented producers and musicians to make this happen for our viewers and fans of the show.”

“As a production, we appreciate the love and enthusiasm that viewers have shown for the show, and this collection of music is an extension of that appreciation. We hope this will continue to remind them of Umkhokha even when they are not watching.”
