Early Life and Educational Pursuits

Born as Busisiwe Nolubabalo Nqwiliso on March 10, 1987, in Kimberley, Bucie's musical journey commenced in her childhood. Growing up in Khuma, she played a pivotal role as the choir leader in her parents' church. It was within the walls of the church that she discovered her passion for singing, harmonizing with friends and laying the foundation for her future in music.

After completing her primary and high school education, Bucie continued to pursue her passion for music. In 2007, she enrolled at the Central Johannesburg College, coinciding with the period when South Africa began recognizing her as a formidable musical force.

As she continues to captivate audiences with her soulful voice and musical prowess, Bucie remains a significant figure in the rich tapestry of South African music.

In 2007, she signed with Demor Music, marking the beginning of her professional career. Her debut song, "Turn Me On," quickly ascended to the top spot on Traxsource, showcasing her early prowess.

Thandukwazi Demor Sikhosana played a pivotal role in Bucie's career, orchestrating her collaboration with Black Coffee on the single "Turn Me On," released and licensed to the German label Gogo Music in 2007. This collaboration, featuring remixes by producers like Ralf Gum, became a No. 1 single on Traxsource, laying the foundation for Bucie's international recognition.

In 2009, the duo collaborated again on the hit single "Superman," which later gained global attention when Drake sampled it on "Get it together" in 2017, featuring Black Coffee and Jorja Smith. The success of "Superman" led to award nominations at prestigious events like the SAMAs, MTV BASE, METRO, and the 2011 Winter Music Conference Awards in Miami.

Bucie's journey of success continued, and in November 2018, she released the "Bucie Rebirth" album, further solidifying her position as a prominent figure in the music industry.

In 2019, Bucie achieved significant success with the release of singles like "Thandolwethu," featuring Kwesta. Her contributions to the music industry were recognized when she received a nomination for Best Female Artist at the 6th Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards in June 2021.
