"Born in Cameroon and based in South Africa, 28-year-old soul singer and producer, Nde Ndifonka aka Wax, carries his messages of love and compassion throughout the world – in June 2009 he jetted off to the US to perform for charity, GEMS, before joining another US charity, Global Majority later that month to help them on their peace-through-dialogue tour. He staged a show for UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon on his recent visit to South Africa.
Nde is a spokesperson for the International Organization for Migration (IOM), brand ambassador for the City of Joburg, and brand ambassador for the ONE Movement (an international anti-racism/xenophobia initiative championed by the United Nations). Owner of record label, Lolhiphop records, he is also behind other artists from across the continent, such as Daveyton’s songbirg, Peggy. His first publication, a play entitled ‘The Chosen One' has been used in South African public schools and tertiary institutions across the continent. He also makes times to give talks and lectures on various pertinent issues affecting Africa at universities and communities.
Wax offers a semi-autobiographical album ‘African dream’, that is as lyrically profound and musically scintillating as it is relevant to all ages and races. The album tells stories of love and war, drawing blood from afro-pessimists, and celebrating love and humanity with beautiful soul rhythms"
