Khaya Mthethwa SABC 1’s Gospel Inspiration Music Concert
Born and bred in Umlazi, Khaya Mthethwa is a true Durbanite, whose passion for music stems from his strong upbringing and the guidance that he received from his religious parents, pastors’ Themba and Lulu Mthethwa.
Khaya the oldest of two, grew up in a household that instilled in him the true meaning of what being a ‘family’ is. Even though he has one biological brother, Mgqobi, Khaya’s cousins were his brothers and these are the very same people that he calls his ‘best friends’ today. They have helped him stay grounded and focused on his goal of leaving a mark in the music industry.
At first glance, one could mistake Khaya for being shy and reserved, but he is in fact a well-mannered extrovert who is somewhat crazy and an adrenaline-junkie who has bungee jumped on more than one occasion.
This devoted Christian hasn’t allowed his devotion to God to prevent him from enjoying the finer things in life. Like most warm-blooded males in South Africa, Khaya is a faithful Buccaneer (Orlando Pirates fan), who loves rugby and swimming. Khaya is also a movie-fan who enjoys suspense and thrillers and if he’s not watching movies he jamming to soul, R&B or Hip Hop.
Khaya’s musical journey started at the age of ten when he started playing drums and a year later when he started singing in the school choir. His journey led to him becoming part of Joyous Celebration but Khaya was already an artist in his own right. Khaya Mthethwa has shared the stage with the likes of Mthunzi Namba, Israel USA, Thulani Shezi, Joyous Celebration, Ntokozo Mbambo to mention but a few – AboutEntertainment … Khaya has a big resume for another day.
