Khethukubonga "Khethi" Ntshangase exemplifies African Evolution. She was aptly born on Africa Day, May 25, 1980, in the city of Pietermaritzburg, KZN, and was raised by Johannesburg's lively underground poetry scene. She came of age in quaint Tanzania. Inspired by soulful Jazz Blues giants like Miriam Makeba, Sibongile Khumalo and Nina Simone, Khethi has trailed Africa in search of cures to the continent's social ills. With a powerful voice, potent writing skills and deep conscience as her catalyst, Khethi has found that the biggest clue lies in traveling and gaining a deeper knowledge of self.

Khethi on the song "Rainbow":
"The words, 'Lelalizwe lali lingiwe' refer to the African continent inclusive of its people. Our greatest potential as a nation lives in our unity. Home is my pot of gold, my treasured space, where I will always return. Rainbows always fill me with pride because the future feels warm and bright."
