Bekezela was born in kwaBulawyo in Zimbabwe, this Afro/World/Soul artist
discovered his love for music in his early years through his Grandparents being
ministers and having choirs and musicians playing in the church. In 2008 Bekezela
moved to South Africa to follow his musical passion, and for many years in
Johannesburg he struggled to record his music.
In 2010 while doing a part time job digging a trench in Sandton the song Bekezela
came to him. "Bekezela" is a cry from a man who is in a long distance relationship
due to circumstances beyond his control. It is an emotional song depicting true love
and trust through the reassurance that one day soon, no borders shall keep man and
his faraway love apart.

Bekezela's journey is one of true character building, taking him from trench digger to
car-washer to waitering. His story is an inspiration to all musicians who travel the
timeline of never really knowing when their talent will be recognized by their peers
and then by the public. It's Bekezela's time to shine and for everyone to celebrate
some amazing songs that have stood the test of time.
His new self-titled album is an Afro/World/Soul album offering social commentary
with each song written by the artist telling his story of struggles and triumphs. The
album in its entirety oozes love, affection and therapy. He speaks to his fellow man,
praising women, and through his ability of telling stories he uses this talent as a tool
to fight for social justice as well as encouraging cultural revival.
All his talents are married together perfectly to give a peak into his past, present and
aspirations and dreams he has both for South Africa and his home town ........this is
his story........and this is everyone's story.
