In case you didn’t know 047 is the uMthatha area code for local calls. No? Well, if you didn’t know, the boy band called 047 is here to ensure that you don’t sleep on Eastern Cape talent.
The 047 trio members are Sihle (21), Lihle (20) and Ngcali (19) and stole the hearts of Mzansi when they popped up on Vusi Nova’s social media.
The boys, who were discovered by Vusi, have finally released their debut album.
“It means so much to us. We are really excited because it’s honestly a dream come true. We never ever thought that this would be something that would happen for us,” said the excited trio.
The album, titled Wen’Ungowam, is their first offering and is all about love.
“The album is about love and experiences about love and hurt – what we’ve seen and what we’ve experienced. That’s why we decided to call it Wen’Ungowam.”
While Vusi Nova’s boys are definitely making a name for themselves, it might be worth your while to know about 047. The boys have big dreams.
