Thando Mdluli is a South African singer from Orange Farm, Gauteng.

He was a contestant on Idols SA Season 19 in 2023 where he finished in 7th place.

He is 22 years old.

Coming from a musical family because both his parents were singers, Thando describes himself as “a ball of energy”.

He has been dedicated to his craft and passion since deciding to become a singer in grade three.
