Tell us a bit about yourself and your background.   I’m a 26-year-old person finding his way in the global music scene. I’ve been doing this professionally since I was about 19, and starting getting into music production and songwriting when I was around 13.  I was born and raised in Cape Town, which has allowed me a very global and metropolitan view of everything I love.

How did your music career start? For me it started in high school, I was part of a boy band. Two years later I got on to a popular TV show and made the semi-finals.

Tima Reece Interview

Seasoned. The first word that comes to my mind when I think about Tima Reece, South Africa’s very own number one Pop and R&B princess, who literally has the industry eating out of her hands. Because those same hands have played an integral part in nurturing so many as well as lifting the bar where international standards are concerned. The veteran recording artist has been in the South African music industry since the age of 16, recorded her debut album in New York City and London at 18. She was nominated for SAMA’s in the Best Dance Single and Beat…

Thandi Ntuli Interview

“I was put on this earth to be an expression of God’s excellence and to share my gifts with as many people as I can possible figure out how to,” began Thandi, and I was instantly convinced that this interview was meant to be.

The more…

How would you describe yourself in three sentences? I don’t do nine to five; I do 24/7. I’m probably the clumsiest person you will ever meet. I’m an ordinary girl that does an extraordinary job. What inspired you to get into what you are doing? I feel like I stumbled into it; it was coincidence because it was never the goal. My one big dream was to be a Miss South Africa and I think the reason I wanted that was because of the platform where you can do so much and give back your community on a much bigger scale. So I…
