NAKHANE

Nakhane is a South African singer, songwriter, actor, and novelist. Having grown up among a Christian community in Port Elizabeth, at 15 he moved to Johannesburg, leaving the church in 2013, publicly celebrating his queerness with his debut album Brave Confusion. He found both controversy and critical acclaim with his starring role in John Trengove’s 2017 feature film Inxeba, and relocated to London to record and release 2018’s heavily autobiographical album You Will Not Die. In 2015, Nakhane’s debut novel Piggy Boy’s Blues was published, set in his hometowns of Alice and Port Elizabeth and portraying a Xhosa royal family. It was nominated for the Barry Ronge Fiction Prize and the Etisalat Prize for Fiction.
