BONGANI B NXUMALO

Bongani B Nxumalo has won the heart of 94.7 Highveld Stereo, but his true appeal lies in his husky voice. Listeners got a taste of his musical talents on the station's morning drive show with the toothbrush tune, but Nxumalo had already taken the rest of the world by storm. He performed in Disney's acclaimed musical, The Lion King, in Los Angeles for more than three years. He then swapped California for Hamburg, Germany, where he spent a year performing in the Dutch version of The Lion King, Der Koenig der Loewen. While in Los Angeles, Nxumalo shared the stage with acclaimed musicians such as Hugh Masekela, Jonathan Butler, Lebo M, Kirk Franklin and Donnie McClurkin. He moved back to South Africa to realise his dream of recording an album.
