Striking and snazzy, Thandiswa Mazwai is no push over. She began her career around about 1996. She shot to fame as the hip female member of Bongo Maffin , one of the hardest kwaito bands to come out of South Africa. The group has toured all corners of the globe, including Europe and America, singing alongside Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan and Sean Paul. Four albums and eight years later, she decided to do a solo project, the album 'Zabalaza'.
