The Soil introduces new member following Buhlendalo’s departure

The Bayangihleka singer told Zimoja that she left the group to focus on her solo career, her publishing company and her artist hub for women, children, and the LGBQTI community.

“We had a good run. I’m grateful for everything -good and bad. I grew up as the child of The Soil,” Buhle says. I have graced local and international stages and performed at some of the biggest festivals in front of huge audiences here and abroad. I can never replace the time I have had with the group, but it’s time to grow and face this cut throat industry on my own. I know I can do it.”
