Idols SA judge Unathi Msengana release live DVD
- a 10 tracks DVD which is a collection of her three previous studio albums and features songs such as A Mother's love song, You make me happy, Ngiyak'khumbula and Sana lwam. “The show,” she told Port Elizabeth Express, “is about my journey, my growth, my joys and my sorrows.” She is one of those people you cannot leave without. Many love to hate her, but it is her positive energy, outspoken personality and music that keeps people going back to her for more. She is without a doubt the modern day African Renaissance Woman. This independent singer and songwriter proudly financed the entire project of recording the DVD, as she wants to emphasize the importance of ownership to upcoming musicians. Unathi who is a Rhodes University Journalism and Drama graduate and also a graduate in Media Studies from University of Utrecht International, moved to the city of gold (Johannesburg) in 2001 to start her career. She was a presenter for Castle Loud and then moved onto the YFM platform. Currently she co-hosts one of the biggest breakfast shows in the county on Metro FM with the renowned media personality Glen Lewis. Together they have taken Metro FM's breakfast show to greater heights. Unathi has not only graced the local stages and platforms such as Bank Joy of Jazz Festival. Performing for the United Nations delegates she evoked such strong emotions that the legendary producer Quincy Jones gave her a standing ovation and even joined her on stage to sing her praises. She has shared the stage with international greats such as John Legend and Youssou N'dour.
