WELCOME TO ENDLUNKULU, THE HOME OF Abafana BakaMgqumeni, Amagcokama, Abakwethu, and Ogezoo
ABAFANA BAKAMGQUMENI is a maskandi group formed in March 2012 by the young, talented and energetic Nelisani 'Ndlemnyama' Mseleku, Sakhiseni "Gqiza makoti-Skhevane" Mseleku, Mthethowakhe "Mkholwane" Langa, Mbuso Ngubane and Njabulo "Matatazela" Manyoni. Later on, they were joined by the ambitious S'phamandla "Dogzin" Mpanza.
They are referred to as EzaseNdlunkulu because they were groomed by the late famous maskandi king Khulekani Kwakha "Mgqumeni" Khumalo, they were too close to him, and he was a mentor to them. After the sad lost of uMgqumeni in December 2009-their co-worker/teacher, His supporters urged them to continue with the work of entertaining Maskandi fans as uMgqumeni did, and therefore their Maskandi genre is IsiGqumeni and the latest release of Abakwethu is a testimony in his fans and media houses welcomed Abakwethu.
Abafana BakaMgqumeni were formed for the purpose of honouring uMgqumeni and also for taking care of his children Lusanda and Simiselo Khumalo. If it ever happens that Lusanda and Simiselo fall in love with and would like to persue a career in Maskandi music in the near future, they will take over and continue with the brand of Abafana BakaMgqumeni. Lusanda and Simiselo are also pictured on the CD cover of the first album of Abafana bakaMgqumeni.
