KWINI Kuza is a band of child prodigies from ages 12 to 14 from KwaDukuza and Durban making their name in the entertainment industry in the province. 

The band is expected to entertain the audience at the Tongaat Charity Fair this year.
Kwini Kuza performs original songs as well as cover songs across multiple genres including African, pop, house and rock.

The band was formed in February last year and has quickly become the premier children’s band in South Africa due to their numerous achievements.

Individually the members of the group have performed on television, at major events and shows and been featured in newspaper and magazine articles.

The name of the group comes from where the children grew up – eThekwini and KwaDukuza, hence Kwini Kuza.

Kwini Kuza members, Entle Mdletshe (14), Siphokazi Gebashe (14), Lusanda Majola (13), Saiyan Naidoo (12), Sabian Lee Singh (13) and Neo Mooi (13) are taking the coast by storm with their immense talent.

The group has performed on stages around KZN including The Ballito Pro, White Mountain Festival, KZN Music Imbizo, Awesome Ilembe Music Festival, Shisa Nyama Festival, Zini Music Festival and Tongaat Charity Fair.

In December 2016 they performed at the Durban Jazz Festival in front of an audience of 15000 people.

The band shared a stage with the likes of Hugh Masekela, Zahara and Unathi at the festival.

They have also shared the stage with some of South Africa’s biggest artists including Mafikizolo, Sketchy Bongo, Lira, Jimmy Dludlu and Kelly Khumalo.

Kwini Kuza completed the recording of their first single, titled Shayingoma which was released in August 2016. The music video for Shayingoma was released in September.
