Afro-soul jazz singer Zethe Mdletshe lights up Newtown Junction Mall

Up-and-coming musician Zethe Mdletshe is over the moon! and man any big dreamer and natural born hustler like her would be equally thrilled! 

The super talented singer from Kwa-Zulu Natal who won the 2017 Vodacom NXT LVL talent search has bagged a massive deal of lighting up Newtown Junction mall in Johannesburg! That’s over 566 km away from home!

Zethe took to Instagram recently to share the news that photos of her beautiful face are now seen all over the mall. According to reports, the deal was struck in 2018 and the pictures were taken then. However, for some odd reasons the pictures were not put up and that really broke her heart, until recently. She is still shaking with excitement and joy.

Zethe told TshisaLIVE that although she’s always loved modelling, her height has been her biggest hindrance. “I know that I’m short – it’s something that I’ve been told every time I mentioned my love for modelling,” she said.

“Not to sound like I doubt myself or anything like that, but I’m also fully aware that Jozi is packed with talented people who had a chance to be the face of the mall – but my hard work and God spoke for me and I’m so grateful. My Africanicity stood out!”

Zethe is forever grateful for the doors that Vodacom NXT LVL opened for her.
