Top Billing features afro-soul queen, social activist and mother Simphiwe Dana. 

Since this preacher’s child from Butterworth arrived in Joburg to pursue her music career sixteen years ago, Simphiwe Dana has become an international, chart-topping artist and potent voice of social conscience.

A significant collaborator in Simphiwe’s life is designer, David Tlale. As she has risen from singing in small clubs to global stages, his international success has mirrored hers.
David knows that he’s not dressing a pop princess. Simphiwe’s afro-jazz sound reflects an artist with sophistication and gravity to her work. Whether she is accepting an S.A. Music Award or highlighting issues as the first global African ambassador for Amnesty International, she always brings presence into a room.

Simphiwe drives a high-school entrepreneurship programme, sharing her knowledge with children across the nation. At the same time, she is raising two self-aware, driven, young South Africans in her daughter Zazi and son Palo. Together with Simphiwe’s sister Qhayiya Dana, they are a tight-knit family unit and clearly up for adventure.

Fans are surprised at how such a formidable woman has an ongoing battle with depression. One which music helps with. Simphiwe feels that when things get too much, her Ancestors move her to write and record, healing herself and helping others through her music.
