Nomagugu Gumede
Hip Hop Music Artist
Durban, South Africa


Nomagugu Gumede was born and raised in Durban KwaMashu F section on the 28th of October 1992. She was first introduced to music at the age of 10 where she heard a song on radio and was highly impressed by the vocalists melodic arrangement, the rest was history.

She knew then assumed that if she wanted to be a successful singer she would need to be a songwriter and not merely a vocalist. With years of training Nomagugu continues to strive towards her dream of becoming a successful musician from KwaMashu.

With the opportunity of a life time given by the Arts & Culture Trust, DALRO & Nedbank, Nomagugu competed against thousands of South African young performers where she excelled and won herself a scholarship towards her education in performing arts at any South African institution.
Nomagugu now obtains a BA in Music and Drama Performance from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. With her music released on Soundcloud, Audiomack, slikouronlife, iTunes and Youtube one could see the evolution of her creativity.

Nomagugu now ventures into a genre outside of her comfort zone, African trap, and she is killing it! ELOKSHINI is her latest single released during Africa month available on slikouronlife. ELOKSHINI embraces self-confidence and teaches resilience, dedication and determination in the pursuit of greatness.

Unlike most multicultural peers from privileged backgrounds inferiority complex tends to effect majority of the youth living in townships as they attempt to pursue a career in hopes to support their families. Nomagugu reminds the youth that it is the very thing that should drive them to excel far beyond expected unlocking their inner greatness.

Celebrating youth month the African Trap artist will be touring her single ELOKSHINI in hopes to inspire and educate the youth on self-love, dedication and discipline, a basic recipe required towards success.

One thing listeners will recognise in Nomagugu’s sound is how real and genuine she is in telling her story in the most authentic way possible. Follow this African Trap Queen on the social media handles below and see what she’s all about.
