« It’s the Singer not the Song »


Tina Lebea born in South Africa named as Albertina, grew up with her two sisters at her Grandparents place in Soweto, Johannesburg.

In the childhood she was inspired by the black music, Miriam Makeba and Ike & Tina Turner. At the age of 15 she had to leave the school due to the “June 16 Soweto Youth Uprising” in 1976. Because of boredom, Tina went to work and joined a tailor’s manufacturing company. She supported her family and took responsibility at the earliest stage.

With 17 years she was scouted as a model and an actress in Johannesburg by a famous model agent. Besides her model career, she was touring nearly 4 years throughout South Africa with “Pyjama Tops” comedy and was the first black actress performing with white actors during the Apartheid regime. She got the lead role in “Ngwanaka o tla nkgopola” Soap Opera. This movie was the first broadcasted film for the Blacks. In 1981 she was nominated for the “Best Black Actress” in South Africa and succeeded for her role in “Ngwanaka o tla nkgopola”.

In 1982 she moved to Switzerland. For many years she was performing as “Tina and Blackpower” in Switzerland and Central Europe. The colour of her voice and the stage performance inspired her fan community. Performing African Folk, Blues, R&B, Gospel, Soul, Pop and Rock proved her multitalents and skills.

In 2020 the famous producer LJ Guru was inspired by the versatility of Tina’s voice and convinced her to produce songs that embodies her Soul. Due to the positive energy, the dream became true and fulfilled Tina’s passion.
