SA Singer BONJ Will Be Opening For Sam Smith On All South African Dates Of His Tour ‘The Thrill Of It All’

BONJ will be joining Sam Smith on the SA leg of his world tour.

Sam Smith's The Thrill Of It All World Tour will hit South Africa in April. The South African leg of the tour will have five dates in Cape Town and Joburg. The South African soul/pop/house singer BONJ will be joining the soul/pop star on all these dates.


If you read our website, you should have at least seen BONJ's name. The artist was, until recently, known for being a member of the now-defunct Cape Town band The CITY. You may also be familiar with the several collaborations she has worked on with veteran producer and DJ, Maramza.

Last year, BONJ signed a deal with Universal Music Group, under which she released her single "Till The Tide." The song blends soul and electronic music, and was one of our favorite SA songs last year.

Get familiar with BONJ; listen to her tunes below (or on her SoundCloud page), and be sure to cop a ticket to the Sam Smith tour to see her do her thing live.
