There is something about a woman who speaks in a husky voice – the kind which almost sounds like a blues singer, crooning her deepest emotions. 

Here are the top 5 sexy, husky-voiced Mzansi female celebs in no particular order.

 It has often been said that Queen B invented a style of TV presenting which spawned a generation of imitators. They copy her hand gestures and her teasing facial expressions. But what many can't manage is to replicate that sweet like chocolate huskiness of her voice.

I am so jealous of Bhambatha – the Ben10 character who is cosying up to Claudia Motaung on Isithembiso. Not only does Bhambatha get to kiss Claudia – don’t tell me it’s acting because it’s real to me – but he gets to wake up to that voice. I mean, is there a better sound to wake up to! I know I said these voices are not listed in any order, but Chichi does things to me that will have me going to the confession booth.

You know when you stay out all night, singing yourself hoarse, and then in the morning, you wake up with a husky voice. Hlubi Mboya speaks with a voice that is just one octave away from sounding like she was partying all night. She could talk about the most boring subject matter and I would still listen. I was inconsolable when she left Isidingo.



Loliwe was one song that used to soothe my crying nephew when he was a toddler. When Zahara sings, all over Africa, lions can be heard roaring back in response. Her voice is that powerful.

Zizo Tshwete

Zizo’s voice is special. She won Miss SA Teen and perhaps they should have given her Miss SA Voice while they were at it. The Garnier beauty envoy has a voice so smooth she could talk me into punching my father in the face – true story!
