Brenda Mtambo

Durban-born Brenda Mtambo always dreamed of being a singer. After completing her Bachelor of Commerce in Johannesburg, her break in music came when she joined the award-winning gospel group, Joyous Celebration.

Her album, "So Much More," addresses unhealthy relationships and is described as an anthem for women. The first single is "Ixesha Lami." Other tracks include "Busezweni," "Ungayeki" and "Themba Njalo." “So Much More” is a departure from Mtambo’s gospel roots, allowing her to express her own distinctive Afro soul voice.

The album was nominated against heavy weights in the category Best UrbanJazz and Best Female in the MMA16 Awards
