Betusile Mcinga, a renowned gospel music icon, has once again made history by winning the prestigious Song of the Year award in 2023. Betusile, who hails from Willowvale and was raised in Umtata in the Eastern Cape, comes from a musical family. His mother, Lusanda Mcinga, is an award-winning gospel artist.

A Musical Odyssey

Betusile’s musical journey began at the age of 14 when he sang in church services alongside his family members. He soon became a proficient keyboard player and eventually a backing vocalist for the Lusanda Spiritual Group (LSG).

A Successful Solo Career

In 2008, Betusile launched his 10-track album Mandibe Ngowakho, which sold over 25,000 copies and earned him a nomination at the South African Gospel Music Awards. The album gained traction primarily through the hit song Ndiyanqophisa. Betusile’s winning streak continued with his 2010 album Inceba Zika Jesu, which sold over 10,000 copies and featured his mother Lusanda Mcinga and Eastern Cape Gospel artist Bulela M.

Taking Charge of His Musical Journey

Determined to take charge of his musical journey, Betusile became an independent artist and launched his record label, Betusile Music Entertainment. The first artist to be recorded and released under his label is Sniko Bulana. As a songwriter, Betusile has also penned songs for the Lusanda Spiritual Group.

Recent Success

Betusile’s most recent 12-track album, Kuphelele, was launched through Top Class Productions and features rising star Dumi Mkokstad on one of the tracks. His viral hit, Ngena Noah, earned him the Song of the Year award from Umhlobo Wenene FM in January.

Divine Intervention

Betusile’s remarkable talent and success in the music industry began at the age of 14, and he has since released five albums. In 2014, he clinched the Crown Gospel Award for his third album in the best newcomer category with the song Zundithwale, which went viral and earned widespread acclaim. At the SAMA awards, Betusile’s win for Song of the Year was a surprise to many who claimed not to know the song until the announcement. In an interview with Touchdown, Mcinga attributed his success to divine intervention, stating, “to God be the Glory.”

Continuing to Inspire and Uplift

As Betusile Mcinga continues to make a significant impact on the gospel music scene, he shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. With a robust foundation in his faith and the support of his family, he is well-positioned to continue inspiring and uplifting audiences for years to come.
