King Tha as she’s fondly known by her fans, has been on this musical journey since 1998, when she began her career with Bongo Maffin.
She ventured on her solo path after 6 award-winning albums with the group.
It is no coincidence that she was born in the same year as the Soweto Uprising, in 1976. Her sound resonates with the vibration of the country’s painful history, echoing the sentiments through her soul-stirring lyrics.
She is known as the rebel singer, with soul. Her work has always been full of meaning and deep-rooted political struggles. Relatable to the South African who understands just how far and fierce this fight has led us.
