Two friends, two pianos, two microphones, two glasses of wine (x 2), and 'Another You' was born. Why did you go? Why not fight? Why did you do it? Bianca Wood and Phathiswa Magangane found themselves asking themselves and each other, the same questions. 

"'Another You' is Meizana's inception song. It was the song that made Bianca and I realize we'd stumbled on something great. The song itself is about a boy - Nothing like a failed romantic relationship to spark the beginning of an unbreakable sisterhood.” says Phathi. 

Listen to 'Another You' below!

'Another You' is about giving up too soon on what could have been an incredible relationship. Meizana - the “meisie and the intombazana” join forces and are letting South Africa know that they are one of a kind and are inviting you to join them on this exciting journey because it is true “there will never be another you” either.  Bianca adds “Will this work Phathiswa? Will our synergy be able to birth some good music?  I kept internalizing this thought before our writing session. But I had nothing to worry about; working with Phathi has exceeded my expectations. Our understanding, our like-minded ideologies, and equal respect for music are all doing the most for us right now. One down, one hundred thousand to go. “Another You” is just the beginning!” 

About Meizana

Meizana is a brand-spanking-new music duo comprised of two solo female vocalists who have joined forces to create a never before seen South African musical offering.  The name is a combination of the Afrikaans word “meisie” and the Zulu word “intombazana” ultimately creating, Meizana. The meisie and ntombazana involved are Bianca Wood and Phathiswa.

Phathiswa is a vocal powerhouse from Springs rooted in the jazz art form. Whilst obtaining her BMus in Vocal Jazz Performance at UCT, she had the privilege of performing on prestigious stages such as the Crypt Jazz Club, The Artscape Theatre and the Grahamstown Jazz Festival. Pathiswa has also shared her music on television shows like SABC 2’s Hectic 9-Nine and SABC 3’s Expresso on numerous occasions. One of her original songs, “Summer Dream”, can currently be heard during the Liqui Fruit advert after she and her co-writer at the time won the talent search hosted by Liqui Fruit in 2017. The song is also available on all major streaming platforms. 2017 was a busy year for Phathiswa as she released yet another single, “Queen, Wear Your Crown”, with a sassy all-female girl group called DZIVA.  2018 brought even more melodic memories when she regularly sang for audiences at local eateries and hosted her first solo performance post-university along with serenading her hometown at the Springs Theatre.  Following this, she took to T.V once more, appearing for a brief but noteworthy time on The Voice SA, where she crossed paths with Bianca Wood and the spark for Meizana was born. 

Bianca Wood, a vocalist phenom from Pretoria, originally began her journey on the stage as an actor but it was not long after that it became clear; she was destined to sing. Bianca has had a jam-packed career in music thus far, releasing her first album in 2015, her EP - 3 AM in 2017 and her single “Blue” in 2018.  “Blue” was then and is currently flighted on several commercial radio stations namely RSG, East Coast Radio, Smile FM, along with several community radio stations. Undoubtedly, Bianca’s top feature is her voice and her diverse live offerings. She plays with several bands and commands various stages such as festivals, cover performances for corporates, and captures audiences with intimate duo/trio performances. A highlight from Bianca’s Live music career is her performance alongside Kahn Morbee and the Parlotones. On several occasions, Bianca Wood was invited to perform as either an opening act or duet partner for The Parlotones. Bianca Wood and her resident musicians have gone on several nation-wide tours with numerous music groups over the past 4 years.  

 2019 brings the dawn of new age, the age of Meizana. This fresh duo not only makes great friends but simultaneously create an explosively vibrant and proudly South African music group. Although both Bianca and Phathiswa’s singing careers boast notable achievements in their own right, the greatest is yet to come with the inception of Meizana.
