Diva There are artists that will carve out their own moment in time. They will pause the seconds and take over. 2015 is Brenda Mhlongo’s year. We will remember this year as the year we danced to "Madakeni" prayed along to “

Equal and Kudlulile will keep the love fire burning and will be an anthem sang by all ladies across the continent.

All people will remember the magical moment that
was 2015 and the soundtrack that
was Brenda Mhlongo’s richly textured voice.

Who is Brenda Mhlongo?

​Brenda Mhlongo

There are clues all over her music. She is African. She
is passion. She is elegance. She is jazz meets soul,
layered with rhythm and blues, sprinkled with
something familiar but you lack the words to describe
it. The more you play her music, the more you lose
the words. Maybe it is Kwa
Mashu, where she has
been nurtured. Maybe is has something to do with the
fact that she is well travelled
a former cast member
of the highly successful Broadway show The Lion King.

Whatever it is there is something here. Something
beautiful. You want
scratch that … you need it
with you always. Her music speaks to the human
experience. The voice, the heavy bass, the guitar.
