    Thabilé is a Johannesburg-born artist who is currently based in Stuttgart, Germany. Her love for music started at eight years old when she sang in the school choir. The 34-year-old says her South African roots are “extremely important to her”. 

    “I live in Germany today, but I’m happy to have grown up in South Africa,” says the 34-year-old singer

    “My songs not only represent myself but the entire African continent. Everyone with African roots who listens to my songs should recognise themselves in them.”


    Thabilé’s new album Read My Lips is a multi-genre 12-track album that allows genres like soul, pop, jazz and R&B to flow into one another. Her sound can be described as elegant, soulful and radiant. 

    The talented songstress says the album is centered around something quite personal. 

    “Missing a vital member of a family can have long-lasting mental effects. This album is about healing those scars caused by loss and abandonment, And just as the healing commences, it brings with it the much-needed self-love and confidence to you becoming the person of our dreams,” expresses Thabilé.

    Taking to Instagram to celebrate the release of Read My Lips, Thabile said the album comes four years after her debut album. 

    “It has been refreshing and fun writing to some of the current popular music styles and now it’s almost time to let these songs out of my hands and into yours.”
