Siyabonga Nkala ‘Star Borne’ is a talented kwaito artist from Johannesburg, South Africa, born in 1988-09-19. At the age 11 years Siyabonga started writing his own songs, RnB and Gospel as a member church and school choir.
In 2004 Siyabonga “Star Borne” Started a group called Ama-Party Maker with Ayaya Socikwa aka Dj Aya because one of his school friends was getting studio time with Robby Malinga (one of South Africa’s best producers of all time). They began making a mixtape to submit to Robby Malinga. The mixtape was not coming together because Dj Aya was becoming popular in the neighbourhood as thee young house producer and Star Borne was occupied with his rehearsals and performances for internationals like Thabo Mbeki, Oprah, NBA Players, Chris Turker and many more, at Ituteng Trust.
Star Borne then moved to Cape Town beginning of 2007 to study but decided to go back to Johannesburg mid-year to study and continue doing music. Worked in a couple of songs over the years while learning how to make beats that would suit his style, worked with artists like Deep Soweto, Lilac Jeans, as a vocalist.
In 2009 Star Borne discovered his house tunes were too deep and then he started writing Kwaito (Dance) and Hip Hop songs which was where he discovered his strength.
Now Star Borne is a performing Kwaito artist who produces deep house tracks and most of his beats. He has not officially released anything as Star Borne yet but has house tracks released in the UK as Bonga short for ‘Siyabonga’ and also a few others available for download on his sites (kwaito)
