Nomsa Mazwai is an activist, a scholar, and the future of South African music.
A gifted vocalist and social change advocate, Nomsa sings her unique blend of melodic poetry to the sounds of classic jazz, drum & bass, neo soul, electronic, and Afrocentric rhythms.
Her debut solo EP, Nomisupasta, garnered her three South African Music Award (SAMA) nominations for Best Newcomer, Best Adult Alternative African album, and Best Album Packaging of which she walked away with the win for Best Adult Alternative African Album.
Although making music is Nomsa’s passion, making a difference in South Africa is her priority. She is a Fulbright scholar, a published writer, and the first female student body president in the prestigious University of Fort Hare’s 90-year history.
She recently completed an MA Economics, in the IPED program at Fordham at Fordham University in New York City, while preparing for the next stage of her music career.
We believe that this is the optimum time to position this rising star within the international music scene. We plan to embark on a major multi media initiative to expose the world to her music, her social concsiousness and her brand.
