Born in Frankfort in South Africa’s Free State province, Zamajobe Sithole grew up in the town of Vosloorus, and sang in the local choir from the age of nine. Her early musical mentor was acclaimed gospel artist, Pastor Benjamin Dube.

Zamajobe nagged her father for a guitar, and inspired by this acquisition, started to compose and write her own material.

Artists which have inspired her include Eric Clapton, Sabelo Gxoyiya and female vocalists such as South Africa’s Letta Mbulu, Abigail Khubeka, plus Khadja Nin.

In 2003, Zamajobe competed in the “Pop Idols" competition, an experience which afforded her a platform to learn about South African audiences.
Instrumentation:
vocals
Genre: R 'n B, fusion
She made it through to the final ten, and of course, built her own profile in the process. A recording contract followed.

She worked on her debut album together with friend and producer Eric Pilani, and the album Ndawo Yami was released in 2004.


Zamajobe’s music maintained high profile on South African airwaves during 2005, and this, coupled with a busy life performance roster has catapulted her to the forefront of South Africa’s new talent. She won the “Best Newcomer" award at the 2005 South African Music Awards.



Awards in Lisbon, Portugal.
