Siya Mkefa

Siya Mkefa has been involved in the South African and international music scene for many years.

From humble beginnings singing in Soweto’s Welizibuko Primary School Choir, he has gone on to perform in the Australian edition of Disney’s The Lion King and has sung alongside such greats as Sibongile Khumalo, Vuyo Mokoena and Hugh Masekela, to name a few. In the mid-90s, he was part of the Eastern Cape gospel ensemble, Lord Comforters.

Siya’s big break came in 1998 when the chance presented itself to perform in the star-studded musical, Milestone, which premiered at the Grahamstown Arts Festival featuring the cream of South African musical talent in the form of Jeffrey Mofokeng, jazz diva Sibongile Khumalo, jazz genius Themba Mkhize, theatre guru Nomsa Manaka and award-winning jazz singer Gloria Bosman.

Siya is currently a member of the Soweto Gospel Choir.
