The Muthaland Entertainment signed 047 is made up of Umthatha-born Sihle (21), Lihle (20) and Ngcali (19). They started singing in 2013 but launched unto public consciousness at the Soweto Theatre in 2017.
Having launched unto the limelight with less than cheering news when one of the 047 band members was kidnapped alongside Vusi Nova in August 2017, their musical talents and abilities would later emerge the eventual winner.
This is because the whole of South Africa got to witness their golden vocals and the amazingly beautiful sound the Xhosa group embodies when they dropped “uBule“ in October, 2017.
Even though the chart-topping record featured their mentor, the more established heavyweight, Vusi Nova, their Afro Soul offering was still nothing but a breath of fresh air in a competitive industry.
Well, the “Wen’Ungowam” album features 12 record of pure musical bliss and enjoys the feature of two acts in Vusi Nova and Bongani Radebe.
Without a doubt, it does look like the boys have now set an exciting bar as long as tribal and indigenous offerings are considered.
Perhaps, the exportation of the beautiful culture is what will eventually guarantee them a spot on the global stage.
Only thing we know is the fact that 047 are here to stay and music fans will talk about this “Wen’Ungowam” album many years from now. Do you really want to miss out on this masterpiece?
