We are by singer medical doctor, Dr Tumi. Born and raised in Limopopo, in the small town of Seshego, just outside of Polokwane. This is where Tumishang Makweya discovered his his passion for medicine and love for music, which he would go on to excel in both.
Dr Tumi not only balances a life of music and doctor, but he also has balance a family life with his wife and three children. On top of that he is also a minister of song, spreading the word of God through music. This is due to growing up with a father who was a priest, while his mother was a teacher. He studied medicine in Ga-Rankuwa and which eventually led to opening up private surgery. In 2007, he began his musical journey as part of an award winning singing group called ‘Intense,’ before he went for a solo career. He is a gifted song writer, having written all the 16 tracks on his debut album ‘Heart of a King’, which won Best RnB Gospel Award at the SABC Crown Gospel Music Awards in 2012. He was also nominated in three other categories that night.
2017 was a career milestone for Dr Tumi as it saw him be the second South African artist to perform and fill up the Ticketpro Dome, after Cassper Nyovest. He was the first Gospel artist to attempt such a feat single-handedly, the sold out live DVD of the concert is set to be released in early 2018.
