Berita is a South Africa-based Zimbabwean guitarist, singer and songwriter. Berita is the first of five children born to teacher parents in Rio Tinto.

Real Name

Berita’s real name is Gugulethu Khumalo

Age

Born in 1991, Berita is currently 29 years. She will be 30 in June

Husband

Berita is married to controversial music critic Nhlamulo “Lavida Nota” Baloyi. The pair got married in 2020 in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. In a note on Instagram after the coming together of both families, she had stated that once the coronavirus pandemic is over, she will celebrate with her man in a big way.

Background

Berita is of Zimbabwean background. But she has spent a long time in South African and appeared so much in the country’s pop circle that many often think her a South African. She isn’t.

By the way, before heading to South Africa, she had travelled to New Zealand. She admitted in an interview a year ago that her travels had influenced her sound.

In Zimbabwe, she worked with the likes of Tuku and Olive Mtukudzi. In South Africa, she soaked up the music of Mafikizolo and the late Brenda Fassie.

Record Label

In an industry that often undermines Women, Berita has managed to create her own turf, claiming a spot in the league of record label owners in Africa. Two years ago, she founded a record label called Assali Music, describing it as the most important decision she ever took.

It is a means of personal empowerment, according to her. The record label owns the rights to all her music. She recently purchased the masters of her first two albums from the record label that used to own it.

Net Worth

Berita is doing well as a guitarist and singer. However, unlike most in the entertainment industry, she does not noise her material assets.

That notwithstanding, she reportedly has no seat among the the broke. While her exact net worth isn’t known, she is among the millionaire music figures in her native Zimbabwe.
