Khabonina Qubeka, a renowned dancer, actor and singing sensation is so in love with Randburg and its surrounding areas that she has chosen it as a locality in which to shoot her upcoming music video.
She has a dance studio in Bromhof where she turns raw talent into slick professionalism.

Khabodacious, as she is fondly known, will shoot a video for the single, Make love, in Fairlands on 7 July.

Qubeka who has released her debut album, Abuti, has several dance and acting accolades to her credit. She has a voice well suited to conveying the emotional nuances of afro soul.

A love of dance has earned Qubeka the nickname, dance maniac.
In her latest project, she features young budding dancers with no formal dancing skills. She is involved in youth development and trained the dancers herself.

"I was impressed by their level of commitment. They were eager to learn, they followed direction and they attended classes diligently. This allows for growth and successful team work." - Randburg Sun Newspaper
