Gospel star Babo Ngcobo ventures into horse farming

Award-winning gospel artist Babo Ngcobo has started an animal farming business in case his career goes wrong in the future.

The Thixo Mkhululi singer sells cows, horses, goats and ducks from his home in Inanda, north of Durban. Babo told Daily Sun he got into farming as he couldn’t predict the future.

“I can’t depend on music alone. I took time and thought deeply before I started this business. I realised that music lovers might be excited by my music, but in the future I don’t know if they will still love it and buy it at music stores.”

Babo, who’s been in the music industry for 30 years and won many top awards, is one of the few gospel artists with money to show for his success. He said his farming business falls under his registered company, Ikhwelo Business Enterprise.

We have three employees but we aim to increase this number and create job opportunities for locals.”

Babo said lockdown made him realise the importance of not only depending on music for an income. He said he wanted to spread his wings and look into other business opportunities in Inanda.
