She was awarded the Standard Bank Young Artist at the Grahamstown Festival in 1993. Sibongile is her father’s daughter in her insatiable appetite for music and profound belief that no music belongs to some and not to others. In a way, everything that she does in her musical career is a tribute to him. She grew up listening to and singing opera, oratorio and the classical art song, and these are genres that she still loves to interpret and perform.

Sibongile came into the limelight of the entertainment industry through her performance of The Three Faces of Sibongile Khumalo, a sell-out show in which she showcased her talents in jazz, South African indigenous music and opera.
