Renneth Tshisikule

CEO,
IMEXSA - Independent Music Exporters South Africa
Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa
Renneth Tshisikule spent the last few years at the helm of IMEXSA developing and increasing the number of music exporters in South Africa through identifying trade opportunities globally, and assisting African music companies and independent musicians to take advantage of those opportunities. She’s also the founder member of one of South Africa’s biggest talent search projects for export, The SA Indies Music Week, which turns six in 2019.

Tshisikule started her music career in 1999 as an artist. She also got involved in the training of young women in the music business while working together with a label called GTP-Productions. Her aspirations to grow her music globally saw her join forces with the Gauteng Growth Development Agency (GGDA). This partnership led her to form IMEXSA in 2010.

Through IMEXSA and the SA Indies Music Week, she has helped over 100 African unsigned and independent music professionals present their talent and products at various conferences like Popkomm (Germany), Womex (Europe), Primavera Pro (Spain), Canada Music Week (Canada), Midem (France), CMJ (New York), Africa Festival (Germany) and South by South West, SXSW (Austin, Texas).
