“JOHANNESBURG – Jive this festive season with Ayanda Live as she takes us through the Nostalgic trip of Sophia-Town, performing songs her grandmother used to sing @ Olives Bistro Theatre Restaurant, in Bedfordview. Known as the Idols Songstress with a voice that moves emotions in all directions, Ayanda Nhlangothi, the grand-daughter to legendary South African Nokwe family, began singing at an early age while her mother Marilyn Nokwe of Mango Groove, her aunt Tu Nokwe of Shaka Zulu fame, and grandmother (family matriarch)- the legendary Patty Nokwe played a pivotal role in guiding her artistic development. Ayanda has a strong sense of social consciousness, inherited from her family legacy – through grandparents, Patty Masuku and Alfred Nokwe. Some of her highlights include: The New York’s Off-Broadway 'Drumstruck', ‘Sleeping Beauty’ Panto, British musical ‘Boogie Nights’, 'Sarafina' the movie, 'Lion King' Zulu movie and her one-hander ‘Ivoti’ which is now available”
