Nhlanhla Nciza Biography

Nhlanhla Nciza is a South African artiste with a remarkable singing gift and admirable fashion sense. Her name resonates as Nhlanhla Nciza and as a member of the South African Afro-pop group Mafikizolo.

Nhlanhla Nciza was born in Schweizer-Reneke, in the North West Province of South Africa on 15 March 1978. She had a deep love for music, but she only got to be famous as a member of Mafikizolo, one of the most respected music groups in South Africa.

The group initially had three members. Tebogo Benedict Madingoane was shot dead in a road rage in 2004, leaving just two members who have carried on brilliantly ever since.


When you say Nhlanhla Nciza songs you are in fact saying Mafikizolo songs. The reason is simple: virtually every tune of significance released by the songstress is not exactly a solo effort but as a collaborative work with her music partner and fellow Mafikizolo member Theo Kgosinkwe.

So the songs referenced here are Mafikizolo songs. They are sterling nonetheless, and should make fine additions to your playlist. It is clear from a critical study of Mafikizolo songs that the group is keenly interested in issues, education and public awareness, as well as the dangers of casual coition.

At any rate, some standout Mafikizolo songs include “Ngeke Balunge,” “Love Potion,” “Emlajeni,” “Happiness” and “Udakwa Njalo,” “Kwela Kwela” and “Mmangwane,” which has been described as the group’s most popular song to date.
