|Description:||Jabu Khanyile is the lead singer with the acclaimed group
Bayete. The Prince is his first solo album, which is finally
released in the UK, following incredible reactions in the US,
where he is just embarking on a 30 date tour,and Africa.
The son of a playboy father and a mother who died when he
was in his teens, Khanyile has found a refuge in music.
Inspired by his father's love of music he left school early and
decided that he wanted to become a musician.
Jabu Khanyile’s riveting, mesmeric stage presence and his
willingness to incorporate other influences into his musical
mix, has led to his being promoted as Africa’s next World
Music Star. He is visiting the UK to promote the album and
his first tour of UK is scheduled for September.
Khanyile describes the inspiation for the album:
This project -my first solo album- was the wish of my ancestors; a task I
gladly took up for it would allow me to share stories inspired by my family,
my ancestors, my tribe, my culture and all other cultures I came into
contact with -from Africa and beyond. I call myself The Prince in this
album not because I believe I am better than anyone else but quite the
opposite; whenever I write and create music, I am doing it not for myself
but for everyone living in this beautiful land and beyond
