Nomvelo Makhanya Launches Music Career as a DJ

Nomvelo Makhanya, the South African Film and Television Award (SAFTA) winning actress, has ventured into the music industry as a DJ. Best known for her role as Lindiwe in the popular TV show ‘Scandal!’, Makhanya has decided to explore her passion for music and rebrand herself as “Mvelo”.

The talented actress has been drawn to the music scene for some time, inspired by her experience working with DJ Black Coffee’s former record label, Soulistic.

Makhanya’s music style is deeply rooted in Afrotech and Afrohouse, genres that resonate with her artistic vision.

However, she felt the need to “release the character” and take a break from acting to focus on her music.

During her acting hiatus, Makhanya received a SAFTA for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the Netflix feature film ‘I Am All Girls’. This achievement was a personal milestone for her, and she expressed gratitude to everyone who supported her craft. “This is it; this is our moment; this is our time! I’m eternally grateful. Little me is happy to have fulfilled my, our childhood dream,” she said in her acceptance speech.

As Makhanya embarks on this new chapter in her career, she is eager to explore the possibilities that music offers.
