The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music proudly presents songbird Zethe on Wednesday 10 July 2019 at 18h00.

Zethe is the 2017 Vodacom NXT LVL winner, a competition sponsored by Vodacom to discover raw talent that they could assist to get to the Nxt Lvl and become big in the music industry. Zethe was voted the favourite artist out of five contestants. She has performed on some of the biggest stages in South Africa including the SAMAS25 and is the new face of Newtown Junction Mall.

With this show, Zethe launches her brand new single. Her debut single Zazi, was realised on 25 April 2018. https://itunes.apple.com/za/album/zazi/1373914558?i=1373915612. That dynamite comes in small packages is witnessed whenever this sensational afro/soul/jazz and house singer takes to the stage. Her uniquely powerful voice stands out and lingers long after she has gone. 

Zethembiso Mdletshe, known professionally as Zethe, was born in 1993 in Ngwelezane, Mpangeni. She is now based in Johannesburg. She graduated with a degree in music from UKZN in 2016, having majored in Jazz. This year, she is working on her first album and collaborations with more artists.
