Maserame Ndindwa started singing at the age of 16 at the Abundant Life Bible Church.
The choir from the church was invited to perform in New York in 1997, at which point Maserame was named lead singer.
In 2001, she moved to Johannesburg to attend Wits College to study sound engineering, but limited finances found her unable to follow that dream.
Her voice, however, is her trademark, and she was spotted by leading local gospel singer Vicky Vilakazi, who invited her to perform.
Always keen to further her studies, Maserame enrolled recently in a drama and dance course at the Bavukile Cultural Center in Klerksdorp.
