Duo: Maisha in Jozi to record their first album

Johannesburg  - Duo Ethno Nubian Township soul and ballad singers Maisha have arrived in the music scene after long awaiting for their departure. On Their sleeve, the duo has been performing with internationally acclaimed musicians such as our own, the late Stompie Mavi, Ringo Madlingozi, Siphokazi, Thandiswa Mazwai as background vocalist. They have taken center stage to the global audience with massive vocal talent that is vigilant.

The Port Elizabeth duo is currently in Johannesburg, recording their initial album. Luckily yesterday we spent a day with these friendly faces on a shoot. 

They are two super sassy girls with linked minds and soul. They are music, they are the beat and they are indeed movers on stage. A voice of new sound soaring from African shores to Global arena. The girls answer to no-one but their passion for performance and entertainment. The girls are born performers who've been creating their own spotlight since they could barely walk - singing, dancing, and twin-talking as friends and bringing light with their infectious energy.

Known for its talent and prominent leaders, Eastern Cape introduced another power packed Duo of female singers from The Nelson Mandela Bay. Maisha formerly known as 3 Quarter, as a women duo they have managed to share International and Local stages with the likes of the late Stompi Mavi, Thandiswa Mazwai, Siphokazi, Phinda Mtya, Ringo Madlingozi and George Benson to name the few. In less than few years in the music scene the duo has finally settled in and soon will be releasing their first album.

Maisha Swahili name simple means: The Truth and Life. This is echoed in their music. Maisha consist of two beautiful ladies Nomabotwe Mtimkulu and Bulelwa “KiKi” Gahe, both hail from the friendly city-Nelson Mandela Bay. They both grew up singing in church and from a musical family background.

They are influenced by the environment and their community. According to the girls their sound has a touch of afro feel, a genre dubbed Township soul. Musically they are influenced by Gloria Bosman, Phinda Mtya, Y’ssou Ndou, and Gill Scott. Besides shopping the girls enjoy dining in style, business networking and motivational talks.

The question we should be asking ourselves, are we ready for Maisha?
