Casta Diva presents two amazingly talented, devoted and aspiring young tenors, Ndima Richard Ndzombane and Kagiso Boroko. They will be taking you on a musical tour of various musical treasures, including some famous arias, and popular classics all the way from Mexico, Spain and Italy.
Ndima Richard Ndzombane was born and raised in Port Elizabeth. His musical journey started at a young age. In high school, he was a member of the school choir and represented Gauteng in 2002 at the National School Competitions.

Ndzombane enrolled at the Tshwane University of Technology to study Vocal Arts, majoring in performance. During this period, he was part of various student productions, such as Verdi’s Un Giorno di Regno and Handel’s Messiah.
Since graduating, he has performed in Opera Africa’s productions of Princess Magogo, which travelled through Europe; I Capuletti e I Montechi; Aida; and the Mikado miniature performed at Casta Diva’s Vissi d’Arte Theatre in Pretoria and at the Catalina Theatre in Durban, just to mention a few.
Since 2010, Casta Diva Boutique Hotel has welcomed this young charismatic tenor into its fold. Ndzombane has hosted various solo performances and participated in many ensemble performances, entertaining Casta Diva’s patrons while they dined.
Kagiso Boroko hails from Hammanskraal. At school, he showed a deep interest in choral music, joining both his school choir and the group Sweet Voice Masters.
