There’s another South African singer on the soundtrack
While Lebo M is at the heart of the soundtrack, keen observers will notice that there is one other South African singer on the tracklisting, named Lindiwe Mkhize.
Lindiwe has lent her voice to the theatre production over the years.

SA has strong ties to the original Lion King…
Many believe that the location and setting of the original Lion King (aka ‘Pride Rock’) was based in Londolozi Game Reserve in South Africa.
It’s a pity they didn’t shoot the live action version there too.
