Biko and Manna Nhlangothi are a sister and brother duo raised by musician parents that perform as Biko Manna. They’ve been dazzling crowds with their street performances in their home county of South Africa for several years but have recently hit it big by covering popular songs on Tik Tok and Instagram.
From Jazz to Pop, this amazing duo’s musical range is versatile and has won the hearts of many. Of course, if you’re familiar with their videos, you would’ve repeatedly seen their little brother who busts out some of the coolest, most hilarious moves – talk about true choreography!
Biko’s Manna was recently celebrated by American actress, Gabriella Union’s daughter, Kaavia James Union Wade on her Instagram account, writing, ” Biko Nhlangothi has become an internet sensation recently and I can’t get enough! Biko and her brother’s, Manna and Mfundo, are a family band that perform as @bikosmanna.global where they’ve been wowing crowds with their street performances in their home country of South Africa. The band has been performing for several years now, but Biko has been singing since she was five. You can tell she is such a natural at it! This cover of ‘Put Your Records On’ has been on repeat lately and I urge you all to take a listen. Keep shining Biko I can’t wait to see what you cover next!”
