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. The one thing he says is " God has put him on this earth to create music. "

Personal Life  

Vusi Nova, age 37, was born in the Brighton Township of Port Elizabeth in South Africa. Vusi Nova's birthday is celebrated on 23rd January every year.  

While most of his fans know him as Vusi Nova, the artist's birth name is Vusimuzi Nongxa. While the music was always on the cards for Vusi Nova even as a child, he has 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.  

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. 

The well-known actor Sisa Hewana is Vusi Nova's brother and is just as private. Fans know Sisa Hewana by his character name Skhumbuzo Nzimande on a very famous South African soapie, Isidingo, shown on SABC-3.  

Since both brothers shared a common bond in entertainment, when 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.   

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 when he grew up, 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 that 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. 

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".   

Relationships 

Vusi Nova’s Love Life  

Vusi Nova's dating history has always been controversial. While rumour had 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.
