South African Royalty: Tsidii Le Loka


Tsidii Le Loka was studying economics and music at the University of Massachusetts when she got a call to come to New York and audition for “The Lion King.” Not only did she get the part of Rafiki, but she went on to receive a Tony nomination for her work.

It was a defining moment for a girl who descended from South African royalty and was raised in Lesotho. Today, you can catch her singing at limited engagements around the world, sometimes alongside names such as Yousouu N’Dour, Madonna and Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
