BIOGRAPHY

Young, African, seasoned singer, song writer Tsholofelo is nothing short
of a wonder in the alternative music world. She was born in Richards Bay,
North Coast of the Kwa-Zulu Natal Province in South Africa, later relocating
with her parents as a young girl to the city of lights, Johannesburg. Eclectic is a
word she says best describes her sound, and as with many musicians, Tsholofelo
passionately confesses that music has always been escapism and a form of teleportation
to which she’s connected with from as young as she can remember.
“I remember the day my family found out I could actually sing. I was chilling at home with three of my cousins who
happened to be avid Beyoncé fans, we all were. Anyway, they would pretend to be holding microphones and they’d sing along,
I then also joined in the singing, to which they stopped and asked who just sang? I felt shy because I thought I was messing the
song up, then they asked me to sing and I did…the next thing they ran to the other room to call my mother who then made me
sing a solo for them. I think that pretty much covers the beginning of my life as a musician.”
Tsholofelo studied music formally at the University of KwaZulu Natal, where she obtained her BA Music degree and
BA Hons Music (cum laude) in popular music. Her sound is largely influenced by the alternative/urban r&b sounds-
cape, hip hop, jazz, indie/folk, pop-soul etc. Her sonic inspirations include Robert Glasper, Lianne La Havas, Adele,
Laura Mvula, the list goes on. Because of the vastness of this sound scape, she has worked tirelessly towards creating
music just as broad, just as honest and just as authentic as her innermost being. Tsholofelo is a seasoned artist, who
has been involved in the Durban music scene as a solo performer for quite some
time. She’s performed at the KZNSA Gallery where she opened for SAMA (South African Music Awards) nominated all
female jazz band, Heels Over Head. She’s also performed at the Jazzy Rainbow, UKZN’s prestigious Jazz Center, The Bat
Center ,and other well known venues in Durban. Furthermore, she has performed in Johannesburg’s Regenesys
Business School during the “Billionaires Under Construction conference”, and most recently, at the Heartfelt Arena in
Pretoria for a crowd of over 3,000 on the same stage as international investor, speaker, and author, Robert Kiyosaki,
but to name a few. Tsholofelo’s debut album titled, ”Becoming” ,is available for purchase and streaming on all major
digital outlets such as iTunes, Google Play, and Apple Music.
