Born in Nkomazi, Mpumalanga province UKZN alumnus, Dr Senzeni Mzwandile Tshuma is striking a balance between his love for medicine and his passion for music, as he pursues a career in music alongside his medical duties. Tshuma who goes by the stage name of “Dr Senzo” has released numerous singles on iTunes and is set to release more titled: Our Love, Ngekebalunge and Jaiva Baby. He defines his usual sound as Soul and RnB but notes that his latest offerings incorporate a mix of different genres from Deep House to Gqom and Afro Soul. ‘With this new music I’ve shown people how versatile I can be and what I can do,’ says Dr Senzo.
Tshuma says that his love for music started from an early age and he performed from the age of nine, teaching himself to play the guitar and writing songs at the tender age of 14. He draws inspiration from musicians like John Legend, Mali Music, Samthing Soweto and Earl Klugh. Tshuma added that his continued hard work has enabled him to meet industry greats like DJ Spectacular, Mzokoloko and Beast and afforded him the chance to record at DJ Sox’s studio and work with his talented producer Csharp.
‘I’m really grateful for what God has done for me so far. Getting a chance to work at DJ Sox’s studio and make music has been the greatest gift. I will continue working hard and I know more doors will open and I will release more great music for people to enjoy,’ he.

Tshuma noted that his love for people and seeing them happy was one of the reasons he pursued Medicine. He attributed his dedication at school to his parents, who instilled the importance of education from a young age. Tshuma has also launched a clothing line – drsenzo_merchandise, which he believes will be a huge success.
