Joda Kgosi only has two songs out. Both were released in 2020, but those are enough to earn her a spot on this list. The two singles garnered 156.4K combined streams on Spotify, while her second single “Truth It” had more than 100K in the first three months of release and was included in the Top 100 Best songs of 2020 playlist on Apple Music. Her quality production (courtesy of Elizée), vocal capabilities and relatable lyrics ensure her name comes up when the new wave of South African R&B is mentioned. The 18-year old singer-songwriter just finished her matric, and is set on giving her music career more attention than before. With an upcoming debut EP in the works, this sounds like the beginning of a familiar success story.
