About

Vusi Nova is a South African soul singer who was very clear about what he wanted to do right from primary school. From making a rendition of Etta James, "I'd Rather Go Blind", Vusi has produced music that has wowed not only fans but also won him awards. 

Personal Life  

Vusi Nova was born on 23 January 1984 in the Brighton Township of Port Elizabeth South Africa.

While most of his fans know him as Vusi Nova, the artist's birth name is Vusimuzi Nongxa. Music was always on the cards for Vusi Nova and he gained attention as a singer and performer after his rendition of Etta James' "I'd Rather Go Blind"

This performance probably had a more profound impact on the audience as it was dedicated to Vusi Nova's mother, who passed away in 2005. He also backed up this performance with several other numbers that were just as good, if not better.

Being private about his family life is second nature to the artist. Other than the mention of his mother, there are no other clues as to who his family consists of. Fans, however, are privy to information about one of Vusi Nova's siblings.

Vusi Nova's brother is the well-known actor Sisa Hewana. Fans know him from his character as  Skhumbuzo Nzimande on the very famous South African soapie, Isidingo.  

Asked about his brother in a Metro FM interview back in 2017, Vusi Nova described his elder brother as tough while he has a soft side. At the same time, he also said that they both fight most of the time but still love each other to no end.   

Vusi Nova's Career

Vusi Nova is a South African soul singer who was very clear about what he wanted to do right from primary school. Word has it that his school teacher once asked him what he wanted to be and he promptly replied, "Music". 

Even though many years have passed since the artist was in primary school, his passion for music has remained unchanged. He has gone on to say that God put him on this earth to create music.  

Vusi Nova has shone through in the past decade. He recorded several songs, and his onstage performances are an experience that fans long for.

His first two albums, "Walk Into Light" in 2013 and "Did it for Love" in 2016, brought the artist into the music scene. However, his third album 'Nanini' Na elevated his career. 

Then, his rendition of Etta James' "I'd Rather Go Blind" brought him into the limelight. His fourth album, 'Manyan-Nyan', is also a fan favourite. His latest album 'Ngumama' was released in 2021.

Some of Vusi Nova's songs that are most popular are 'Ndikuthandile', 'Thandiwe', 'Sing it Loud', and 'Without You'

It is no wonder that the artist has won the South African Music Award for both "Best Afro Pop Album" and "Best Male".   

Vusi Nova's Relationships

Vusi Nova's dating history has always been controversial. While rumour has it that the artist was in a gay relationship and was planning a big fat destination wedding, our sources have confirmed that Vusi Nova’s wedding isn’t in the works, at least just yet. 

Vusi Nova did not even take part in the feud the gay rumours sparked. Instead, he spent a lot of quality time with the Idols SA Judge Somizi. 

It was only early in 2021 that Vusi Nova chose to address the questions about his long-standing relationship with Somizi. He stated that they have been close friends for over 16 years and are nothing more.

This was only a few months after Vusi Nova wished his lady love a very happy birthday on social media. He posted a picture with a lovely lady on his Instagram page. The two wore matching outfits and looked very comfortable with each other.

In June 2021, Vusi Nova chose to gush over his bae again and asked fans whether they thought she was lovely. While not much is known about Vusi Nova's girlfriend, he has tagged the snob with a blog in some of his Instagram posts.  

Is Vusi Nova single?

While there have always been a number of rumours of the artist's dating life (including those that claim he is gay) it was only recently that Vusi Nova has made the person known. However, we only know the person as “@anobwithablog”.  

Are Vusi Nova and Somizi dating?

Most of us have heard this rumour at some point. However, Vusi Nova has recently come out and said that he and Somizi are only close friends. Their friendship has lasted for over 16 years.  

Vusi Nova's Controversy

Exploitation

After a 65-year-old Tanky Tank 'Tengz' went viral for singing Vusi Nova's unreleased single Ndincede and making it popular, Vusi was accused of exploiting her as he rewarded her with a crate of beer and R3000.

Vusi denied the allegations and said that he received Tanky Tank's blessings ahead of his song's release. He also captured moments of his visit to her home which depicted his appreciation for what she's done to popularise Ndincede. 

The 65-year-old also poured cold water over the claims and thanked the musician on social media for what he'd done.

Who is he dating?

We have noted above that Vusi Nova has a girlfriend. To make it clear, he made the news known after rumours went wild that he is gay. However, that has done so little to fend off those rumours.

After he was pictured in a cosy position with Lasizwe Dambuza, the internet went crazy and concluded that the two are an item. However, Lasiwe tweeted that Vusi is his Bible Study friend.

It's not the first time the two are being linked. Previously, images of them cozying to each other sparked claims that they are romantically involved. Again, they denied it.

Vusi Nova’s Car Accident  

Vusi Nova has always been an ardent fan of cars. He owns an Audi as well as a Range Rover sport, among other luxury cars. 

He gave his fans a glimpse of his Range Rover to inspire them and encourage them to work hard and fulfil their dreams.  

However, all was not well, and in February 2020, the artist got into a car accident when his car slammed into a fence. 

He claimed he is grateful to be alive and even tweeted a video of the wreckage urging fans to be more careful on the roads.  

Vusi Nova's Net Worth 

Vusi Nova has had an up-and-coming career so far. Although we cannot figure an exact amount for the artist's net worth, we estimate it to be between $500,000 and $1,000,000.
