Colbert Mukwevho was born in the Venda region in Limpopo Province- South Africa.
The diversely talented music artists playing their trade in the local music industry make the country a most appealing cultural hub.
While there are a great many music sounds and genres indigenous to South Africa, international influence is prominent.
This certainly cannot be viewed as a downfall when you have artists like the reggae-inspired Colbert Mukwevho, whose singing and compositions are inspired by that legendary Jamaican, Bob Marley.
Mr Mukwevho has been a musician for close to three decades initially working as a bassist and backing singer with Chicco Twala
He also did a duet, Hero’s Party, with Brenda Fassie in the mid-eighties, which appeared on her album Black President.
Mukwevho, who hails from Limpopo, has frequently heard that his voice is mistaken for Bob Marley’s.
