2011 saw Grammy award nominated and world renowned producer Zwai Bala take her under his wing, to develop and nurture Titi’s outstanding vocal ability. During this time, while carefully crafting her debut album with this music giant and hit maker, she continued performing and gaining valuable experience even as production assistant at Bala Brothers Productions.

This young and dynamic Modern African Jazz artist, with a voice older than her years has taken every experience in her stride and is finally ready to release her first single “Inyathi” (composed by her talented brother Lubabalo “Barlo” Luzipo); under Bala Brothers Productions.

Now Titi is based in Johannesburg, where she has built quite a following introducing and refining the concept “#SongsMyMotherTaughtMe” – a tribute to the massive musical influence her mother, well known songstress Vuyelwa Qwesha has had on her life.  With the help of Concerts SA and SAMRO Foundation, Titi has just completed a national tour with this creative concept and sold out in Durban and Cape Town. Titi made headlines in 4 provinces and shared the stage with her mother at one of the shows held in Port Elizabeth.

Titi is excited to release her self titled debut album and share her gift with the world as she jets off to Germany next year to the German Vocalese Jazz Festival.
