Bongi Mthombeni Spreads Love From Thembisa, To Idols, To USA, To UK, To the World!
May, 03 2017 (Johannesburg, South Africa) Thembisa raised performer, Bongi Mthombeni has re-released the first single from his self titled debut E.P. The single is entitled “Coming Home” and it has already caused a stir amongst audiences since its first release last year. The song is about a lover who is missing his significant other and therefore serenades her with this song, wishing for her return. He sings about how he will make sure that everything is all right for her arrival. Bongi wrote the song as a way to express that as a man; he wants to be the strength, rock and pillar for his lady. He wants to highlight the message that whatever one may do or wherever one may go, home will always be waiting with love.
Bongi believes that love is all we need here in South African and he is taking this message with him to the rest of the world. The release of his single, ‘Coming Home’ is meant to remind everyone to always have a place in their homes, in their lives and in their hearts for compassion. To further spread his positive message of sharing love, Bongi is involved in a number of outreach programs that teach young children how to play musical instruments and grow as performers.
As a self-taught musician, Bongi Mthombeni’s love for creating songs started at a very young age which has developed him into a very versatile performer. This can be heard in his impressive vocal range, eclectic sound, his ability to play piano, drums and bass guitar as well as his mass appeal to a wide market. He has often been dubbed as South Africa’s ‘Rainbow Artist’ as he can be found dazzling audiences on a number of different stages. From theatre plays to folklore shows to outdoor music fests to even small intimate unplugged shows, Bongi always delivers a stellar, heartfelt performance.
After wowing the judges and audience by making it to the Top 8 of Idols Season 6, he went on to sign to Contento Music, a record label which is owned by the well-acclaimed Lindelani Mkhize. This was followed by the creation of his debut EP and frequent global travels. He has since been invited by one of the entertainment directors from Disney to come to the United Kingdom for a tour where he will be performing a number of intimate shows across 5 countries. The shows will mainly comprise of Bongi singing and playing his piano, whilst promoting his EP. Bongi will also be working with international producers on new material which he says will be African sounds fused with a global feel. This work will be showcased alongside his other music at his homecoming show which will be held in Johannesburg after he returns from the UK in June.
