Gift Gwe


Gift Gwe is a South African singer who was the runner-up on the third season of the M-Net reality television competition Idols, in 2005.

His understanding of the marketplace and need to combine both his original music with a phenomenal selection of cover songs have always ensured that his live shows were memorable. Gift on stage is quite simply an experience but with his new NINE Piece Band it’s now an event.

Gift Gwe was born in Queenstown but grew up in Mosselbay. Gift started singing in the church choir at school. Gift was one of four winners of Mosselbay Idols who formed a group which performed around the Western Cape. In 2005 he entered the M-Net Idols competition, with the help of his mentor Lenise Hendricks. He soon became a favorite with the Idols’ audience. Gift was the face of Toyota Yaris. His first single hit the shelves shortly after the nationwide Idols contest in 2005.

Runner-up in the Idols 2005 competition, Gift Gwe says he has music in his genes.

A sound engineering student, he says he has always been very interested in music and sang in the church choir in his home town Mossel Bay.

He dreams of an international music career and believes he can make it, and judging by his success, so do many others!
