The soul of Mama Africa meets the fire of Motown and Soul in pint-sized packet of dynamite. Music critics have tipped the singer for being the next big thing to come out of South Africa with the qualities of a world star.
Nomfusi’s life story was described in Rolling Stone South Africa as “the sort of story Hollywood is bound to snap up.” She was born in the township of KwaZhakele in the Eastern Cape. Her single mother raised her while her father languished in jail for 21 years. A domestic worker by day, Kwazibani was a sangoma (African medicine woman) with a gift for music. Nomfusi would accompany her mother to the weekly sangoma rituals (“Intlombe”) where Nomfusi would develop her musicality by dancing and singing for hours.
Not one to just stand behind a microphone and sing, the self-taught singer and songwriter has become well known for her untamed stage performances all over the world. After a mere six years in the industry, Afro-soul star Nomfusi has become one of South Africa’s most sought-after export products with over twenty international tours under her belt. The SAMA nominated singer, who is based in Johannesburg was counted under the top ten rising stars on ETV Showbiz Report in South Africa. With a gigantic voice and tons of charm there is nothing small about the petite songstress Nomfusi. With sheer will and determination she has risenfrom the squalor of South African squatter camps to glistening on the stages of the world. The Sama and Metro FM nomine is now ready to take on the international market by storm.
