Nkanyiso Mzimela, Actor, Artist and All Round Talent

By Aphiwe Faku

Nkanyiso Mzimela is an actor, artist and musician from KZN.  He started acting at just 16yo and has appeared in short films, theatre productions and TV commercials since, and features as the character Melusi on Isibaya on Mzanzi Magic.

His other great love has always been music and Nkanyiso is not only a great vocalist but he has also studied production and sound engineering to have more control and overall improvement of his sound. His main genre is soul music but because of the versatility of his skillset, he likes to explore other genres such as rap and house music.

Nkanyiso, or Night$ which is his performance name, is about to drop his Before Winter EP, and is doing it with an exclusive event hosted by Bafo Media & Night$, with footballers Sphiwe Tshabalala and Reneilwe Letsolonyane at their Shaye Lounge in Soweto. It is an honour for Night$ to work with them as they’re two childhood idols that he looked up to growing up as a Kazier Chiefs supporter.

The event will include a listening session of the new tracks, and an opportunity to meet Nkanyiso and learn more about his journey, inspirations and future plans.

Before Winter is a soulful, a mixture of hip hop and R&B music. The first single is a dedication to news anchor Chante Jantjies, and most of the songs talk about love stories, that cover heartbreak and love.

The company Bafo Media is co-owned by Night$ and is a self-funded organisation that aims to create opportunities for young, upcoming artists who seek to make it in the entertainment industry. 90% of the supporting acts on the evening will be young and upcoming artists, and this will also be Night$ very first live performance as a musician.  A not to be missed occasion.
