  • One of the finest gems to emerge out of the province of Kwazulu-Natal (KZN), South Africa, Khombi Mthanti is echoing the sounds of true worship into the South Africa's gospel arena. Her passion for worship and her love for the Lord Jesus Christ have given birth to an anointed ministry and sound. Some have liken her to our very own version of Yolanda Adams.
    "Dee" as she is commonly known by her peers is set to share this ministry, this sound not only with South Africa, but the world.

    But, life was never easy for this minstrel. Like many other vessels used of God, she has had her share of misfortunes and disappointments. Her story is common to those of many black South Africans who were born under apartheid. Born into a poor family, abandoned by her father, she and her siblings were raised by a grandmother while her mother was working as a domestic worker in the city. She shared a house with her three sisters, aunts and her cousins.

    The escalating violence and township riots of the late 80's forced "Dee" and her siblings to move in with her mother in the city. Her mother would hide them as she feared her employer would fire her if they knew she was staying with her children in the maid's quarters. She and her siblings continued to stay with her mother until one of her mother's friends took them in after seeing how bad their living conditions were.

    In her first year in high school, she accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour. She marked this event as a turning point in her life. "I discovered that I have a talent of singing then I started singing in the church choir thereafter I started leading Praise and Worship, organized rehearsals and worked with the church band", she said.

    In 2007, she released her independent debut album and Live DVD titled, The Hour Has Come. The album hit the airwaves and became an instant success with Ukhozi FM, Igagasi FM and other community radio stations around KZN with the track Ukuphi featuring as a soundtrack in one of the episodes of the popular South African soapie, Rhythm City.

    Since then she's appeared on a television show, It's Gospel Time on SABC 2 and shared a stage with the likes of Benjamin Dube and Sfiso Ncwane. As a songwriter, producer and singer she continues to share her musical talents with churches around KZN.
