''Singer Brenda Mtambo (30) has done backing vocals for a host of South African musical stars. In fact, she has sung with just about every artist worth ­mentioning: Hugh Masekela, ­Sibongile Khumalo, Judith Sephuma, Lira, Thandiswa Mazwai, Jonas Gwangwa — the list rolls on.

She was an integral part of the hugely successful Joyous ­Celebration gospel ensemble and, as a travelling singer, she got to see large chunks of the world.

Now it is time for Mtambo to claim her space. Her first album is called Inspired and is released by Joyous Records. She launched the album in Sandton on Thursday night.

The surprise is that this gospel label has released a purely Afro-soul jazz title without a ­religious message.

Mtambo was born in Umlazi, ­outside Durban, where she was schooled, later attending the then University of Durban-Westville to study for a BCom in accounting.

She came to ­Johannesburg to finish her studies and, once there, joined Joyous ­Celebration — a move that put an end to her office life''.
