The Melisizwe Brothers are a group of young musicians from Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines aged between 10 and 15 years old, that have been blessed with a wonderful talent and have been winning the hearts of audiences through their special gift in their hometown.

The Melisizwe Brothers are comprised of Mark Aaron James, Seth Jared James and Zachery Justen James. According to the children’s mother and father, Sherry and Mark James, the name ‘Melisizwe’, pronounced ‘Me-lis-we’, was specially chosen. Mark James has stated; “We believe that a name is important, so we wanted one that had meaning.” After much research, he said, they chose the South African name which means ‘Leaders of the future/nation,’ as they wanted their children to be leaders within themselves first.

  1. Hi. I am Tamira from South Africa. I first saw the Melisizwe Brothers on the Steve Harvey Show and I’ve been following them ever since. I was fascinated by their band name. I would like to help out with the pronunciation of the name you chose. It is pronounced exactly how it’s written (meh-lee-see-zweh). It means “stand up/represent the nation” while “Holisizwe” pronounced (ho-lee-see-zweh) means “lead the nation”. I hope my comment was useful. I wish the Melisizwe Brothers all the best.

  2. I recently started following Melisizwe Brothers. Uhmmm I am speechless about the way they execute their talent. I wish to attend one of their live shows in real life. I wish them the very best in their future endeavors. God bless you guys. Remain humble before God. You will surely go far
