Hey there, I’m Wandile Mbambeni. I’m a singer/songwriter/producer working and living in Johannesburg,RSA.

 

Born and raised in the Eastern Cape, Wandile Mbambeni is one of SA’s top breakthrough artists, with 4 years worth of work already behind him. After having signed his first major record deal with Gallo Record Company in 2017, 2018 saw him release his much-anticipated debut album ‘Kwakumnandi’. The album was showcased to a select media group in Johannesburg on Thursday 21 June and was met with rave reviews from industry professionals. The album features 2018 SAMA award winning artists Shekhinah & Bongeziwe Mabandla.

Music was not Wandile’s first love, though. Coming from a sports-focused family, he initially pursued a career in professional rugby. Featuring at scrum-half, he enjoyed success during the early stages of his rugby career, including winning domestic competitions with the Border Bulldogs U19s and the Eastern Province Kings U21s. However, Wandile decided upon a complete career switch.

The true job of an artist is to reflect the times.

“While I always enjoyed singing, I received my first guitar when I was 16. As I taught myself how to play it, I also began to develop my own sound. I saw music as a hobby, but whenever I played for friends and family, they encouraged me to take it further” saysWandile“Music sparked a fire in my heart that rugby no longer did. So in 2014, I told my parents that I was quitting sport to pursue my passion. Later that year, I was lucky enough to tour Germany. Then in 2015, I packed my things and left for Cape Town, where I hoped to make a name for myself.”

Much love,

W
