Sibonelo Sibembe

Sibonelo Sibembe is a young artist with an old soul born on the 16th December 1987 in the traditional coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal and grew up in Eastern Cape Province in a small village called Mount Frere and small town called Umtata. With a majority of his childhood spent in the Eastern Cape Umtata he spent time with some traditional leaders of his village; this is where his love for the arts came to the surface.

While escorting the Village Elders to visit the King he would initiate the traditional songs and poetic out-callings. At the time he considered this as just fun; not knowing it was his talent.

Sibonelo moved to Johannesburg to further his art and to get more exposure and to be more exposed to the vastness of the art of Poetry and Soul. He is currently working on his Debut Album which comprises of traditional spoken word and soulful hems.

As time went on, he developed his poetic and vocal abilities; this brought his hobby into an art he wanted to pursue as a career. In 2015 I attended school of arts @ FUBA School of Drama And Visual Arts to enhance my skills of talent and also to learn stage performing skills.
