DéMonique – Singing to Stardom

One of the awesome things about me launching 12 Notes is that I get to find amazing talent in my own back yard. If you don’t already know, I am South African and to find amazing independent South African artists is always a pleasure for me. Maybe I am a little biased or maybe it’s patriotism, but I always yearn to see my fellow South Africans become successful in anything they do. It is good for them and also great for our country. In spite of our problems it is good to know that we are moving forward and that the arts, especially music, is gaining momentum, getting better and that we have new and amazing talent…such as DéMonique.

Authentic, Glamorous, Vibrant, Exciting SA Pop Duo Deme & Niqi are sisters who took singing & dancing from some of the roughest streets to some of the biggest stages in South Africa. Pursuing this dream relentlessly makes it possible to convey the message that where you come from should not determine where you’re going- success is our choice! Their mission is to change the face of the SA music scene by literally bringing some color to it, while taking our unique & fresh brand of fun & inspiration to the youth.
