Lawrence Sibbanda

Lawrence was born and raised in 1993 in South Africa but is of Zimbabwean descent. He grew up in a very diverse multicultural, multi-faith environment immediately after the apartheid era. He feels his experiences in his formative years gave him good grounding to learn the resilience that he needed in his later life following the loss of his sight after meningitis. He has since found that he can transform a passion in music into a successful career.
