Girls scream for joy and more and more men show their fascination freely whenever she appears on stage. She is has an aura of elegance, charm and loveliness. Above all, she sings with a voice that captivates her audience. Everyone in concert swings to the melody of her music. Her name is Zoe. AFRITOPIC met her in Hamburg and had a relaxed chat with her.
Afritopic: How was it for you growing up in Germany?
Zoe: Born to a Liberian Father and German mother in Liberia, I was brought to a small town in Bavaria called Penzberg as a baby, where I went to school. I was raised within the family environment of my mother. In the elementary school, I was the only child of African descent. I was not conscious of my color and did not feel different to other children until I moved on to the secondary school. It was then I started noticing the way people eyed me or passed comments about my looks. I was uncomfortable with the situation in the beginning and did not like it when people referred to my looks as exotic.
