Wandile Mbambeni has recently released his new EP entitled MATURATION – a beautiful release identifiable by Wandile’s raw talent and beautiful voice, following the first single from the EP entitled Lovers Like You. We catch up with him to find out what’s what.
What does your ultimate musical success look like?

My music taking me all over the world with people responding to the songs in a deeper way.

Tell us more about your musical influences, and specifically for your latest EP?

Jordan Rakei, who is an amazing artist who knows how to use his vocals as an instrument; Erykah Badu inspired me to feel music first and everything will fall into place and J Dilla & D Angelo who taught me exactly that.
