Bongi Mvuyana is a singer, songwriter and performer who fuses soul, jazz and folk music to deliver a fresh, alternative soul sound to the discerning music lover.

Her debut singleI Wonder introduced her sound to the African music scene in 2014 and went on to chart on Metro FM’s Top 30 Countdown and on four Nigerian radio stations. This was followed by an emotive ballad _Gold _which charted on Vuma FM, Maskandi-influenced _Sweet Love _that playlisted on radio stations across Africa, and Sizwile which was remixed by renowned producer Da Capo and played in sets by the likes of Black Coffee & Louie Vega.
