From a tender age Sizani Mdlongwa had the love for singing but at that point he had not decided which music genre he wanted to sing.
The singer, who grew up a kwaito fan got his talent cultivated at primary school where he was in the school choir but as he grew up he got to realise the kind of music he like .
“I started singing from an early age. I remember singing at Mazwi Primary School choir but took it professionally in 2012. I always wanted to be like Msawawa and Mzambiya, the stars of our days, then as I grew older I got to understand the gospel and growing up around seasoned gospel singers the likes of Mkhululi Bhebhe former Joyous Celebration member and Eric Moyo at Family of God Church helped.
I saw that my purpose was to spread the word of God through music hence chose to sing gospel.
“It was in 2013 after joining the VocalEx group under Thembelani Mdlaziba, where I became visible on the music scene even outside church.
I got invites locally and internationally sharing the stage with great gospel locals and renowned international singers like Ayanda Shange, Charisma Hanekam Dlamini and Sipho Makhabane,” said Mdlongwa.
Mdlongwa said he is get to realise his full potential.
“The highlight of my career was 31 December 2018 when I launched my first debut album with five tracks titled Sabelo Sami. Every time I listen to my songs I get inspired to write even more songs.
Those tracks encourage me to do more in terms of upgrading my career and in the community. After my Live DVD concert on 30 November I hope I will be set for international tours, there will be more music, more fun and more ministering,” he said.
