ChianoSky was born in Mbombela, Mpumalanga, in 1993. She is an only child to her mom and has a step-brother from her dad.
When ChianoSky started learning to sing, she fell in love with her dream even more. She always performed at Eisteddfods and plays, wanting to be involved in several parts. Later on, she said, "I knew that leaving school to pursue a music career was a very risky thing to do, but I was adamant it was what I needed to do. I definitely tried to place myself in the right place at the right time." Furthermore, she left high school and enrolled at the National School of The Arts, where she studied everything about music. Lady Luck smiled on her when she met big music shot, Paul Almeida, at a restaurant. She played him some of her tracks, which he liked, and then he presented them to EMI. That is how her journey into the limelight began.
The singer-songwriter, who burst into the music scene in 2012 with her hit debut album “Hungry,” is not slowing down despite the limitations at hand. She is staying strong - mind, body, and soul - and committing to her craft like never before.
