Yonela Mkile was born in Nomzamo in Queenstown so herself, Lujaman and Deekay are all from the Eastern Cape but they live in Cape Town, in Masiphumelele, Kenilworth and Khayelistha to be exact.
Yonela makes Afro soul mixed with jazz music. She comes from a musical family, so she can’t remember when she first started singing. She met a person by the name of Steady who was part of a group called Hard Road, and they made jazz music, which is what inspired her to fuse jazz with afro soul music. She started recording started last year when she met Real Tau and he helps push her musical career further and motivates her. Deekay makes mostly trap music mixed with hip hop.
Lujaman makes music called Sfana’kaloku also known as real talk music. It was a language spoken in the mines, and it’s a mixture of different languages. Real talk music touches on social issues happening in communities.
