Afro-pop star Ntando Bangani is off on a promotional tour of India this weekend and promises to dazzle his audiences with his unique style.

He leaves on Saturday on a week-long trip during which he will play at three big gigs.

Bangani, one of our top music stars, last released an album - Uhambo Lwam - in 2007, selling more than 25000 copies.

When asked why he has kept a low profile of late, he said he has been touring and promoting the album.

His first album, Kwantu, went platinum (50000 copies), his second, Imvelaphi, went triple platinum.

He scooped two South African Music awards in 2005 and four Metro FM Music awards the following year.
