Maleh is an Afro soul singer and songwriter. Her musical career began at school with the Afro pop group Khaya which won a MetroFM Award in 2005 for Best Newcomer. She left music to major in cinematography but it was at the 2010 Standard Bank Joy of Jazz, where she worked as a production coordinator, that inspired her to continue singing. A highlight was collaborating with South African DJ Kent on the song "Falling"which put her on the international map.

Maleh has performed in Europe and in neighbouring countries. Her last album, "You Make My Heart Go," was nominated for a SAMA award in 2015. She won in the Best African Adult Album category.

Her music celebrates and explores the many aspects of love, the difficulties of finding true love and it embraces the sacrifices that come with keeping it.
