Born from the musical melting pot of Mpumalanga, in a mining township of eMbalenhle, surrounded by diverse musical influences from his father’s jazz and alternative rock collection to his brothers’ various tastes from bubblegum, pop, kwaito, soul, r&b, and hip-hop; Zano always had music running in his blood even before he knew it.
A change of location from Secunda to Pretoria changed his perspective on the entertainment industry; and from 2004, Zano has been working professionally as a session vocalist, actor in musical theatre and on TV, and as a TV presenter, MC, songwriter and music producer.
