Meet Nokuphila Hlophe An Authentic, Driven and Ambitious Young Woman

Nokuphila Hlophe

Tell us a little bit about yourself

My name is Nokuphila Hlophe and I am an authentic, driven and ambitious young woman. I also consider myself a sophisticated woman who knows who she is and what she wants.

What inspired you to start what you are doing?

What inspired me is my late mother who used to sing Ringo Madlingozi’s songs to me when I was young. Being in the school choir as well has pushed me to sing more. So I adapted to music through that, though I say I am gifted and not talented.

What projects you are currently working on and which project is going to release the first in the coming days?

Currently I am not working on any projects.

Which celebrities do you believe are most influential?

Solange Knowles, Adele, Erykah Badu and Jhene Aiko.

On what do you spend the most: Clothes, gadgets, accessories or anything else?

I spend most on data lately.

Are you a bathroom singer?

No, not really but I sing when I bake.

Whom do you love the most, your parents, friends, siblings or yourself?

I love God most and then me first before anybody else.

What do you do when you not working?

I usually write lyrics, jam with the church band, and play around with songs.

Where do you see yourself amongst the competition?

I see myself at the top. Nowhere else, but at the top.

Where do you think you will be after 20 years?

In the next 20 years I see myself singing to millions of people around the world, owning a youth choir, owning a pastry shop and café. Traveling the world with my five kids and husband and just to continue flourishing for the next 20 years.

Do you have any motivational message you want to pass to upcoming artists or someone interested in becoming an artist?

The impossible can always be possible, as long as you believe then you will achieve the impossible. What matters is you and what you need.

How can people get in touch with you?
