The Kiffness

Live Electric Duo - Cape Town
The Kiffness


The Kifness member include David Scott on Keys, Trumpet and Vocal as well as Mvelo Shandu a.k.a “Black Norris” on Bass and Vocal.

Their instrumental talent combined with a love for hype and uninhibited dancing means that they’re a real crowd pleaser and have yet to play a show where crowds aren’t going wild. The secret behind their live show is that they aren’t just musicians; they are performers, so the crowd can always expect nothing short of a huge vibe.

It would seem unlikely that a big Zulu boy and a skinny white boy from Sandton would become best of friends, but these two men met in their first year at Michaelhouse High School back in 2001. From endless hours of singing in the chapel choir to playing in the jazz band together, their unique friendship is solidly built on the foundations of music. Suddenly their friendship makes sense when you see them performing together on stage.

The band has had 4 singles playlisted on national radio stations.- “The Kiffness – Where Are You Going ft. Mathew Gold” made #2 on the 5FM Top 40, and “The Kiffness – Pushin’ On” and “Samuel Miller – Stepping Out (The Kiffness Remix)” are currently on the charts. Where Are You Going was rated as one of the top 100 songs of 2013 in South Africa based on radio play and sales, and was included in the Now 65 compilation CD in 2013.

The band has played at many prestigious festivals, including OppiKoppi in 2011 and Rocking the Daisies in 2013. Dave and Mvelo were awarded music honours at Michaelhouse for their contributions to the Chapel Choir, Jazz Band and Natal Youth Choir.
