Khanyile ''was born in Soweto, and was forced to abandon his education at the age of fourteen in order to earn a living, after his mother died''.[2][3] His father was a miner and performed traditional a capella songs, and his brother John played in a reggae and soul covers band.[2]'' Jabu followed them into music, first joining a local band called The Daffodils, and in 1974 joining John's band The Editions as a drummer, later becoming the group's vocalist''.[2]'' In 1977 he moved on to The Movers, and by 1984 Khanyile had joined Bayete as drummer, a band that combined Afro-jazz and reggae. Bayete split up in 1992, and Khanyile embarked on a solo career, with releases credited to Jabu Khanyile & Bayete, although none of the original members of Bayete were involved by this time''.[1]'' Khanyile became known internationally in 1996 after an appearance at the Royal Gala evening in honour of Nelson Mandela''.
