Dr Tumi (real name Tumišang Makweya) is a renown South African gospel artist who is a producer, songwriter, instrumentalist and vocalist. He is known for his ability to minister healing from a dual perspective. Dr Tumi runs a surgery in Mabopane, north of Pretoria providing physical healing but he also ministers healing to the soul through his heavenly inspired songs. Through his music, the erstwhile lead singer of award wining gospel group Intense, touches souls propelling healing as it flows from heaven.

Dr. Tumi, whose real name is **Tumishang Makweya**, is a South African gospel artist, songwriter, producer, and medical doctor¹². He was born on July 10, 1981, in Seshego, Limpopo, South Africa¹. He graduated as a medical doctor from the Medical University of Southern Africa (Medunsa) in 2006¹. After graduating from medical school, he worked in the public sector before quitting and delving into private practice¹. He still runs his private practice in Mabopane, north of Pretoria¹.

Dr Tumi’s first solo album – Heart of a King garnered him Best RnB Gospel Award at the SABC Crown Gospel Music Awards in 2012, where he was nominated in four categories. He has since released several albums and has won numerous awards.

In April 2021, Dr Tumi and his wife were arrested for allegedly defrauding the National Lotteries Board of around R1.5 million. They were released on bail and the charges were later withdrawn in September 2021¹²³.

Like many artists, Dr Tumi’s singing kicked off in Sunday school. Church environment gave him a platform to work his skills as a pianist and singer. Armed with his virtuoso musical abilities, Dr Tumi has also shown over the years his ‘no fear' attitude towards challenges. In 2003 he was involved at the Coca-Cola Popstars and made it to the Top 20 after competing with close to 16 000 participants. Although he didn’t feature on the overall winner’s group, he was called back for extra training as he was one of the most outstanding talents at Popstars. This afforded him an opportunity to receive training and coaching from music greats such as Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Caiphus Semenya, Letta Mbuli, Thembi Seete and Blondie Makhene.

Dr Tumi has released several albums and has won numerous awards. Some of his popular songs include:
