#WhoRulesAfrica || #AfricaDecides The music artist and legend; @thandiswamazwai, was raised by journalist parents which made her childhood inspiration full of African stories from Chinua Achebe, Steve Biko and Kwame Nkrumah. Thandiswa’s first Solo project titled “Zabalaza” in 2004 reached double platinum status, and her second “Ibokwe”  in  2009  reached gold status in its first few weeks of release. Thandiswa has performed all over the world at venues such as The Apollo in New York, Africa Brazil Festival and BBC Music Awards  and she’s shared the stage with music legends like Stevie Wonder, Sean Paul, Clark Khan,  Lady Smith etc. Thandiswa majors in Jazz, Traditional, Funk, and Afrosoul, and her Afrima2017 nominated song “Nontsokolo” is a jazz song with African wordings that sets in an 80’s/90’s feeling. #Anticipate #AFRIMA2017 Africa's Biggest Music Event …for hope, for celebration!
