Aspiring Singer Kutlwano Yika
He’s been performing at traffic lights in parts of greater Sandton, and has become somewhat of a social media phenomenon, with renditions of his covers showcasing his talent, but Kutlwano Yika shows no signs of slowing down. With a talent for singing and self-promotion, this young South African hopes to build up enough of a following to be able to fund his own productions and recordings.
