Like most vocalists Thoko began singing in choirs and musical theatre in her school days and stepped into the house music scene in 2008 working with Point 5 and other House Music producers and DJs. She featured on Point 5’s debut album with a song called “All in the way.” Thoko later joined the band Clique Claq as lead vocalist in 2011 and the group has gone on to perform at various events and festivals in and around Nelson Mandela Bay.
Clique Claq had the honour of being selected to open for the legendary group Stimela and the late great Hugh Masekela when they performed in Nelson Mandela Bay. In 2016 Clique Claq were crowned the winners of the Mandela Bay Talent Search. As a performer she has gone on to headline the opening of the Season in Nelson Mandela Bay together with idols finalists Bevin, Keegan and Loyiso and graced stages such as Ebubeleni Festival as a backing vocalist for Monea , Corona Beach Camp and Numb City among others. In 2017 she collaborated with Luke M and Euphonik on “Apologies” which was on high rotation on National radio and TV and 2018 saw Thoko opening for Afro soul singer Berita and join forces with DJ/Producer Pascal Morais from the Netherlands on the track titled “Better Days.”
