Nosihe

NOSIHE has organically grown in her artistic expressions to be an eclectic soulful power force, solidly centred in her environment to interpret and translate through songs and its imagery. Some may liken Nosihe’s bold disposition in imaging to avant-gard styling of Grace Jones combined with the modern day haunting melodies of Laura Mvula. At a young age the vocalist already discovered she loved singing. She was that girl wanting to take the lead when singing at family functions and always got that radiancy because of her passion for song. It was a natural choice to pick up a musical instrument, and later to enroll in classical training and several school choirs. Currently she is studying Jazz and Popular Music at the University of KwaZulu Natal.

 

When asked about to highlights in her career, NOSIHE says that she is mostly reminded of the first time she could play what she heard in her head as a massive highlight. After this experience, the highlights of her singing career kept on accumulating to a point where she took steps to see her intentions through as she eventually found herself performing in a choir for President Mandela. When she realised she could make a career out of music, she decided to enter Idols (2016), during which she performed weekly in front of a television audience of 4 million as she made it through to the top 8. From this she learned how she wanted her career to take shape, after which she build up her experience as an independent solo artist further. Another highlight performance was a performance at the Harry Gwala stadium in her hometown Pietermaritzburg.

 

Over the years, the vocalist has built up a great and very active social media following that also follows her to her live performances all over South Africa. She has created a SECRET GIGS brand, a consistent surprise performance treat for loyal fans and new ones as well. In 2019 Nosihe has released her first EP, which is a live recording from the Secret Gigs, which has been well-received by her fans and through which she gained new following.
