Heavy K heav­ily in­vested in boost­ing wife Ntombi’s ca­reer

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - News -

Heavy K is his wife Ntombi’s big­gest fan and be­lieves Mzansi will catch onto her fire very soon.

The mu­si­cian (pic­tured) said it was im­por­tant for him to be Ntombi’s sup­port sys­tem and help nur­ture her singing abil­i­ties so she could reach her full po­ten­tial.

“I’ve been work­ing on Ntombi’s project. I’ve ac­tu­ally been fea­tur­ing her on my mu­sic for more than two years.

“We’ve been do­ing al­bum songs‚ hence she didn’t re­ally blow up ini­tially be­cause her vibe is dif­fer­ent from mine and I don’t want peo­ple to box her into the Heavy K sound. We want her to have her own iden­tity in mu­sic. She has a soul­ful and jazzy sound.”

Heavy said as a per­son who Ntombi trusted and whose opin­ion she val­ued‚ he was there to give her all the guid­ance she needed, but was also care­ful not to hog all her at­ten­tion. He said he wanted her ca­reer to be moulded by other peo­ple too. The Wena hit­maker said he had con­sulted peo­ple, such as the late Rob­bie Malinga, to help Ntombi carve out her space in the mu­sic in­dus­try.
