With his spine-tingling voice, stage presence and evocative song-writing, Nakhane should be the next global gay superstar.

Born 30 years ago in a small town in The Eastern Cape province of South Africa, Nakhane has been blessed with a glorious, once-in-a-generation voice.

His dazzling second album You Will Not Die has received an extraordinary amount of high praise from critics: “a real star in the making,” “unlike anything else you will hear this year,” “makes the dancefloor a place of tenderness,” and “as a musician, his wit and style emulates Prince and Bowie”. MTV called him a “South African singer, actor and LGBTQ trailblazer”.

He’s written a novel, Piggy Boy’s Blues (2015), which explored the delicate subject matter of a relationship between a young man and an uncle who he discovers is in a same-sex relationship.

He starred in an acclaimed and controversial gay-themed feature film, The Wound, which examines homosexuality in the African Xhosa community and was shortlisted for Best Foreign Language Film at last year’s Oscars.

About DNA Magazine

Wow! This month’s issue is BIG! Like cover boy Max “not very” Small. See his High Impact photoshoot – 8 pages of out-there briefs for boys with bulges! In regular column Your Best Sex Move, Cameron advises what toys best suits your butt – since you were asking! And Jack Ladd gets down (on his knees) and dirty as Berlin’s infamous Kit Kat Club! We look back at the year and celebrate the best of people, politics and pop music, plus we name and shame the worst bullies, bigots and homophobes of the year. We meet porn star JR Bronson, who promises he won’t kiss and tell on the high-profile Hollywood men he’s “encountered” but he still has great stories to share. Musically, we discover Nakhane and his sublime voice and beautiful song writing. Have a listen – we hope he’s the next gay superstar. In the sports arena we chat with our straight mate James Bracey who’s commentating the Aussie Open this summer. He tells us about his best gay mate and the bromance between Nadal and Federer. Seriously, we continue our series on addictions in the LGBT community. This month – when you know it is time to head to rehab. For man-candy we have our shoot with Max, plus two more sexy portfolios to enjoy, plus all our regular columnists and fun stuff. Download now and enjoy!
