Urban  soul  singer  and  entertainer  TABIA  has  been  working  on  her  material  for  over  2 years now, writing  and  arranging  her  own  music  and  sound. LOVE, LIFE  and  CHALLENGES, that's  what  TABIA's music  is  all about.  Her  brand  revolves  around  the  fact  that  talent  alone  is  not  enough. Magical  on  stage,  melodically  driven  this  is  how  South  African  music  should  be.... arguably TABIA represents what  South  Africans have long been  longing  for.
 TABIA  has  shared  the stage  with  some of  SA's  finest  artists  and she  recently  won  a  SOUMA  AWARD  (South  African  Up  Coming  Music  Awards)  for  best  Afro/Soul.  Her brand  underwent  a  structure  shift  late  last  year  stemming from a strong desire to take TABIA's  music  to  the  people  and  her  music  was  well  received  by  AFRICAN  CREST  RADIO, ALEX  FM  AND  TSHWANE  FM  and  METRO  FM. She  was also at  the  Semi-Finals  for  the  CMS  Unplugged  (Castle  Milk  Stout  Unplugged).
TABIA appeared on Yo-Tv for an  interview  and  the  demand  was  more  than expected  and  it opened  doors  for  her  as  a  solo  artist.  Through  her  powerful,  strong  and  unique  voice  that  stands  out  and  her  music  she  was  the  Semi-finalist  at  the  CastleMilkStout  Unplugged  talent  search  on  Metro  FM  but  couldn't  go  through  coz  of  the  type  and  style  of  her  music  but  that  alone  created enough of a  buzz  for  her  and  increased her fan base significantly.
The singer has performed on even bigger  stages  such  as  Macufe,  Oldies  festival,  Miss  SA  2011, Capetown  Jazz  Festival  etc            

BACKGROUND

THEMBEKA  KHUMALO   was  born  on  the  28th  of  November  in  the dusty  streets  of  Soweto, Diepkloof and started  singing  at  a  very  young  age.  
At  the  age  of  15  she  won  a  competition  called  TALENT  EVENING  SEARCH  where  she  was  the  only  and  the  first  black  person  to  win. She  had  an opportunity  to  meet  and  to  be  mentored  by  Liesl  from  JAMALE.
It was in 2009  that things  changed  and she  decided  to become  a  professional  artist. Khamalo was  then  introduced  and  did  her  first  professional  show  with  the  legend  himself  SIPHO  HOTSTIX  MABUSE.
Working  with  him  opened  lots  and  lots  of  doors  for  her  as  she  started  meeting  and  working  with  other  artists  such  as  CAMAGWINI:    MAFIKIZOLO:    MONEOA:    MALEH and POSELETSO  SEJOSINGOE,  to  mention but a few.      
 Along  her  music  journey  she  was  honored  to  share  a  stage  with  the  3  South  African  Diva's  mamaTHANDI  KLASSEN,  mamaABIGIAL  KUBHEKA    and  mamaDOROTHY  MASUKU,  She  shared  a  stage  with  big  overseas  artists  as  well  such  as  KEITH  SWEAT  at  (Oldies  Festival), ANTHONY  HAMILTON (MACUFE)  and  MONIQUE (LESOTHO  festival).     

 She  did  TV  shows  doing  backing  for  artists  such  as   LIVE  AMP, AFRO-CAFE,   SUN-RISE and MY  WORLD. She's  looking  forward  to  sharing her  gift  with  the  world  and  be  exposed  to  the  world  wide  music  audience  while at the same time bringing back  the  long  lost  sound  of  Africa!
