avatar for Thembisile


Thembisile started realizing that she has a singing talent at the tender age of seven. She started competing at Shell road to fame talent competitions at the age of 13. She did not make it in that competition, however she never gave up and started singing at social events in and around Hammersdale. In 2003, whilst she was doing Grade 11, she took part in the Coca-cola Popstars Talent competition. She was chosen as one of the top 5 winners, who formed the Popstar group Adilah. They recorded an album, which won an FNB Sama Award in 2003 and sold over 25 000 copies.

In 2004, Adilah as a group went through some challenging times and Thembisile decided to follow a solo career and juggle it with Adilah work. She was signed up as a solo artist in 2004 and recorded an album with EMI/ CCP Records, which was released at the beginning of 2005 October. She released an album titled Thembisile –My journey in 2008 which recently won an MTN SAMA Award 2009.
