Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO NEWS - Welling­ton Mak­wakwa

A NIGHT of soul­ful mu­sic awaits Zu­l­u­lan­ders this month.

Mu­si­cian and ac­tor Xolani Ndi­mande (24), bet­ter known as Xola Musiq, will launch his new sin­gle Sithandwa Sami at the Wave Café in Em­pan­geni on Sun­day, 25 No­vem­ber at 6pm

This well known muso will be ac­com­pa­nied by Linda Gcwensa with lo­cal mu­sos, po­ets and co­me­di­ans.

The launch is headed by the Siyapham­bili and Open Arms char­ity organisations.

‘This is a free show, but we re­quest lo­cals to bring do­na­tions such as food parcels, clothes or even cash to ben­e­fit the two organisations.

Xolani is no stranger to the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try, but known for his tal­ent as a gui­tarist, ac­tor and vo­cal­ist.

This emerg­ing artist from eMadaka Re­serve out­side eSikhaleni has been fly­ing the Zu­l­u­land flag for years, and show­cased his art in var­i­ous coun­tries such as Ger­many, France and Hol­land.

‘Even though I have al­ways done mu­sic, peo­ple know me as an ac­tor. This time around I want to show­case my mu­sic abil­i­ties as well as do some­thing pos­i­tive for my com­mu­nity.

‘I have been in­volved in var­i­ous the­atre pro­duc­tions and my mu­sic took a back seat. But right now my fo­cus is to go back to where I started and spread love through mu­sic,’ he said.

Xolani has made a name for him­self as part of the­atre pro­duc­tions such as Young Zulu War­riors, which toured in­ter­na­tion­ally, Zu­l­u­land pro­duc­tion Death of the Em­peror Shaka, Soul Five and the na­tional anti-rhino poach­ing pro­duc­tion.
