Leonard Karikoga Zhakata (born 1968) is a popular Zimbabwean musician and singer. He writes and performs songs mainly in his native Shona language. Zhakata, who wears trademark glittering outfits, is best known for his hits Hupenyu Mutoro, Batai Mazwi and "Gomba Remarara". However, it was his 1994 smash hit Mugove, from the album Maruva Enyika, which propelled him to national stardom.

In 1994 at age 26, he became the youngest Zimbabwean musician to sell more than 100,000 copies of an album, when his solo album Maruva Enyika sold more than 120,000 copies.

Zhakata's musical genre is Sungura, a guitar based, high-tempo music local to Zimbabwe.
