Gauteng Vuyokazi
Vuyokazi Tshaya is one of the finest Afro Soul voices to be produced by South Africa. She has been described as a dynamic performer by her audiences and a legend in the making by a well known music promoter, Jackie Chili. Her rendition of South African classics is remarkable, her stage presence personifies confidence and one can't miss her gratitude towards her predecessors like Mahotela Queens, Letta Mbulu, Dark City Sisters, Brenda Fassie, Miriam Makeba and the Skylarks for their contribution to SA music leaving young artists like herself this great inheritance (South African sounds).
Vuyokazi is a natural storyteller, she writes about a variety of topics, both as an observer and from experience. She believes in “message songs,” what good is a song if it can’t inspire? Love is her favorite topic but just like most young women she has experienced major heartbreak in her quest for love and has decided to share some of her experiences. Her performance could be described as an emotional roller coaster as she takes you through all the different stages of her journey from looking for love to finding love, from being in love to fighting to keep it, from loosing love and trying again. She has identified other hits that express aher story and creatively fused these great songs with her music which helps to paint her full picture in 45 minutes. Its magical how she manages to create different moods, in one set her audiences dance, laugh and cry because all these emotions are real every time. She has determined to be part of any initiative and organisation that empower women and use her gift to motivate young women to be confident, find success and occupy places of influence so that they don't stay in abusive relationships just for money.
