About

Ndanga’s music is done in an old school Zim-vibes sound but sung and put together in a modern style. Ndanga grew up listening to Pengaudzoke, James Chimombe, Devera Ngwena, Leonard Dembo, Super Sounds, Ngwenya Brothers, Khiama Boys, Bhundu Boys and the Legendary Oliver Mtukudzi to name a few. His broader appreciation for other non-Zimbabwean musicians like Dobet Gnahore, Papa Wemba and Chris De Burgh influences his lyrics and song format.

His music captures the attention of both young and old. Some of the music is thought provoking, whilst some is rhythmic dance or just easy listening. He takes pride in singing in a Shona dialect uninfluenced by other languages.

Ndanga was born in Masvingo Zimbabwe, but currently resides in the United States. He attended Kwekwe Junior and Louis Mountbatten schools before his high schools years all spent at Prince Edward high school. He had a brief stint as an Air Traffic Controller at Harare international Airport before he took off for Detroit Michigan, where he studied Accounting at Wayne State University. He further went to do an MBA with the University of Phoenix. He writes and composes all his songs. His writing articulates the joys and hardships faced by any and everyone anywhere in the world. However his song “Africa” was written with Africans in Diaspora in mind, a snippet of what goes through the mind of a person living in a foreign land away from home.

A true family advocate at heart, his writing is reflective of it, and he is not afraid of portraying it in his own persona.
