Bongeziwe music has a very heavy folk sound and is very much influenced by the artists like Tracy Chapman, Simphiwe Dana, Jabu Khanyile, and Lauryn Hill. His music has a rhythmically grass-roots vibe while fusing elements from styles like Mbaqanga, soul, and hip-hop and Dub. Bongeziwe has been performing in open mics and poetry sessions around Joburg. Late 2008 he released independently an EP called "UMLILO"with Producer Paulo Chibanga from dub group 340ml and currently developing some work for a full album that is due to be released later this year.
