Actress Mbali Nkosi is planning on expanding her brand and becoming a DJ.
As a media personality and businesswoman, Mbali hosts a makeover show on DStv's Honey channel called Shine Shine, has her clothing line called M label, her cosmetic range Azuri with Sharon Khuzwayo and Thembi Seete, and wants to add DJ to her list.
“I had the pressure of everyone around me telling me I understand music, the fact that I play musical instruments and I've written songs, questioning why I am not doing music
“There was this boom of so many females DJing and I didn't want to jump on their bandwagon. I wanted my own story. I decided to do it differently and go to school and when I'm ready I'll come out,” she told TshisaLIVE.
Six months ago, Mbali enrolled to learn how to DJ and is set to graduate in two months.
“It took so long to build my own brand that I'm not trying to create somebody new or create an alter-ego so I'm going to stay Mbali Nkosi.
Mbali has Sama nominated songs she's written for Thembi and Lira, among many others, and said this venture will put her back into the music scene.
“I want to focus on my music side . I want to get to a point where I am releasing music again.”
