Khuzani Mpungose Indlamlenze King Khuba, Maskandi King Inkosi kaMaskandiKhuzani Mpungose, also known as iNdlamlenze hails from Emandaba Village in Nkandla, KwaZulu Natal. His full name is Khuzani Nkosikhona Innocent Mpungose and was born on 3rd December 1989 as the second born child of three by Mr Muziwephahla Mpungose and Mrs Sizakele Mpungose, MaNgema. In 1995 he started attending primary school at Mvayiza Primary School at Mandaba village in Nkandla until 1998. The following year in 1999, he attended Sibhakabhaka Primary & High School also in Nkandla until 2002. In 2003 he left KwaZulu Natal and started attending Makgatho Primary School in Pretoria for a while before returning back to KZN where he completed his matric at Sibhakabhaka Primary & High School in 2009.

Growing up, Khuzani Mpungose was heavily influenced by the music of Mgqumeni (Ibhova likadikadika) & Mtshengiseni Ngcwensa (Indidane). That led to him pursuing a career in maskandi music. On the 19 December 2009, one his idols, Mgqumeni Khumalo unfortunately passed away while he was still working on his album called iSecret. Mgqumeni was at the time of his death signed under Izingane Zoma Music Promotions under its founder and director, Shobeni Khuzwayo. As Mgqumeni passed away before completing his album, Shobeni Khuzwayo chose the young 20-year old Khuzani to complete that album because of his clean voice which also resembled that of Mgqumeni. That album, iSecret went on to win the SATMA Awards.

The following year, in 2011 Khuzani released his debut album titled Bahluleke Bonke and has grown enormously since then. In 2012 he released Amampunge, an album that created waves in the maskandi industry and led Mtshengiseni Gcwensa to conclude live on Ukhozi FM that Khuzani Mpungose will go on to be one of the best maskandi musicians and win many awards just like Indidane.

Indeed as Mtshengise Gcwensa predicted, Khuzani Mpungose is now regarded as Inkosi kaMaskandi, the King of Maskandi music by many fans and is also known as King Khuba! The fans of his biggest rival, Mthandeni ManqeleIgcokama Elisha seem to disagree though. Looking at the number of awards and accolades that Khuzani has been receiving, it is not clear that he is currently the best Maskandi musician. He has also worked with the best maskandi musicians such as Indidane himself Mtshengiseni Gcwensa, Izingane Zoma, Shobeni Khuzwayo, Shwi Nomtekhala, Osaziwayo, Babes Wodumo, Imfezemnyama, Amagez’Amahle, Andile KaMajola, Lebo M, Big Nuz, Afro Soul and many more.

Khuzani has released many albums and his arrival on the maskandi music scene has been well received by many. In 2015, he collaborated with Izingane Zoma on his 14-track album, Isihlahla Samavukane.

In 2017 he released ISIXAXA SAMAXOKI , an album that went gold within Two months of its release. In it, he worked with several people such as Skhindi Zondi, Phathaphatha, Maqhude, Senzo Kanyile and Thibela Mpungose to name a few.

Khuzani Mpungose has won a lot of accolades in the years he has been in the maskandi music scene. He has won the Song of the year and Best-selling artist at AMATSHOTSHO KA MASKANDI AWARDS, the SATMA’s, SAMA’S and The Life changers Awards and many others. It seems like it’s only the beginning for King Khuba. Khuzani now has thousands of loyal fans who are normally seen in their iconic blue outfits whenever they are going to watch their favourite maskandi musician perform. He has recently gotten an endorsement from Jonathan D, an acknowledgment of Khuzani’s swag and being inkosi yamabhinca.

Izithakazelo zakwa-Mpungose

Khuba,
Tetemane,
Wena wephahla elinhlokonhle,

Sgquma ndawonye njengengulube,
Mnukwa,

Nyoni esindwa sisila sayo,

Yaqhubeka yabandisa abantu,
Mabhala ngozipho abanye bebhala ngosiba,
Magadlela,
Somvumasi!
