Get To Know Your Superstar – Sonke Mazibuko

Sonke Mazibuko is no stranger to our vocab, and certainly not to the eye. We have seen him on one of the most viewed show in South Africa – Idols SA competition (season 9). He is an Afro Soul Musician who has just released his new single “Angikhathali” under Mabala Noise.

We get to know the superstar a little: Her are some fun facts about Sonke Mazibuko…

-Sonke Mazibuko has been just announced as the new addiction at Mabala Noise Family following his new single that is available worldwide.

-He was on Idols season 9 and was only a few votes away from securing his spot at the finals.

-He was born in Soweto Gauteng

-He’s toured South Africa, London and France with the choir and shared the stage with musicians like Celine Dion, Mary J Blidge, Danny K, Loyiso Bala, Steven Molakeng and Johnny Clegg to name a few names.

-In 2005 he was offered a scholarship to study acting at National children’s theatre – formerly known as JYT in Parktown.

-Makhosonke translates to ‘all the kings’ or ‘great kings’ so Sonke always grew up knowing he had to live up to his name. He started being a breadwinner for his mom and three siblings. He supported his family through various gigs throughout Johannesburg. 

-He started performing at the age of 6 and he was exposed to the industry by partaking in various talent shows, these helped boost his confidence and he nurtured his gift of music by taking lessons from different drama classes that were offered to previously disadvantaged children within his community.

-He was part of the Soweto Gospel Choir which he stayed with for 3 years, he then later decided to spread his wings and go solo.

Sonke Mazibuko has since proven that he has what it takes to become South Africa’s next big singer. With Label such as Mabala Noise recognizing him, makes it more evident that he has more surprises for us in the future. We can’t wait to hear more from Sonke in the next coming months.
