TONI MNGOMA (TALENT SEARCH WINNER 2018)

For Toni Mngoma, the definition of a dream delayed is not a destiny denied. For as long as she can remember the only thing she’s ever wanted to do was stand in front of an audience and sing. And this soulful singer is showing no sign of giving up on that dream anytime soon. “My earliest memories of my singing aspirations, was during an innocent conversation with my mother. I was 4 years old when she asked me what I wanted to be in life. My confident response was “Brenda Fassie”, says Toni (29).

And to this day, that dream has not changed. “Now, I want to set the world alight with magic and power through my voice, my music and art.” The King of Pop, Michael Jackson also had a great influence on Toni when growing up.

Born in KwaZulu-Natal, she, with her mother and siblings moved to Johannesburg . Raised in single parent home taught me resilience and strength packaged in regal and grace. “I have unshakable support from my family. And this is enough motivation for me to pursue my destiny – to showcase my talents and be the ultimate best that I can be,” she says.
“What people should know about me: Is that I am such a lover. I love to shower people with love and that can be a bit overbearing sometimes but I cannot help it. I can moonwalk as good as Michael Jackson lol, still trying to figure out how to do that in heels and make it look sexy lol. I love learning new information and that is why I am so passionate about reading and history, particularly African history. Lover of all things art, I paint, draw, act, sing.”

When it is my time to leave this world, I want to leave a magic people and the world will speak of for many generations to come, to shine a light bright enough make a great positive difference to the world and inspires to be the absolute best version of themselves. Her favourite quote is: Magic happens when you step out of your comfort zone. For when you let go of your fears, you automatically start operating from of place of love, power and sound mind.

Toni’s first single, “Touch the Sky”, written by hit-maker Daniel Baron, will be released in January 2019.
