UJU - sweet as Zulu honey

Ntuthu Ndlovu began her career writing poetry in private and slowly evolved her talents into song writing. She is strong spirited and determined. A product of Selaelo Selota's development programme, she persevered with the establishment of a band that fused poetry, edgy African sounds and new brand of urban music. Ntuthu is the founder and muse of Uju.

Not a gathering of friends go by that I don't pull their CD Cape to Cairo out of the office and let my friends feast on its atmosphere! Uju has a jazzy African hip hop kind of flavour. With vocals by the beautiful
Lerato Ntsamai, Wandile Molebatsi creates so much mood on Djembe, Percussion, Harmonica and Vocals, Khumo Kganyago Jazz/Lead Guitar, Mosebetsi Nzimande Bass Guitar and Earl Joseph on Acoustic Guitar - but ultimately it is the voice and words of Ntuthu - the muse - who make Uju so smooth.

Just have a look at how funky their EPK is!!

Much respect for you guys cause your music is off the chain basically one of a kind. I actually remember seeing your perfomance @ Shivava last year March and I was breath taken by your perfomance, I still would like to get a hold of a demo so I can somehow advertise you this side of the world USA. Keep the brilliant music going. Nonkululeko Fihla-Ransier.
