Getting up, close and personal with singer, songwriter Nick Soul

With an extensive background in the entertainment industry, actor, singer and songwriter Nicholas Nkuna, also known as Nick Soul talks about how his passion started, and why he prioritised his singing career.

There’s a lot that I am proud of says Nkuna. He says that the work he did last year called, ‘Faith Takes Time’ was a musical that allowed him to cast young people that can sing and act from the townships.

Nkuna says that the entertainment industry is not easy. He adds that you must have an agent or some kind of knowledge in the industry.

For the fact that we went out there and we found raw talent.
