(Fri, 4 May 2018) Jacquel Entertainment Group, who recently partnered with Universal Music Africa to empower local artist development, ownership and production is releasing their first offerings today!
Bonj is a quiet person at first glance. But the minute she steps on the stage, she becomes a force to be reckoned with. Her voice is husky and strong, yet rich, seductive and incredibly entrancing. Born and bred in Soweto, Bonj has been immersed in the music industry for over 10 years, and she’s only getting started. She describes her sound as a blend of electronic music with soulful melodies and groove. She aspires to make music that moves, uplifts and makes people dance. Coming from a music-loving family, you can immediately hear her influences drawn from Gospel, Jazz, R&B, Soul, House & Kwaito.
Her raw, enchanting and power-house vocals are hard to miss at any live performance and like many iconic singers, she began singing in the church. After graduating from the National School of the Arts in 2007, Bonj began her singing career in earnest – from performing on Afro Café with Sharon Dee & Blondie Makgene to doing backing vocals for Mafikizolo singer, Nhlanhla Nciza.
