Ernie B St. Clair first entered onto the music scene as one of ten finalists in the Coca Cola Pop Stars Competition. The finalists were given an opportunity by Virgin Records and Tartan to excel in the music industry and two months later contracts were signed and Afro-Z was born. This lead to an album and numerous chart-topping songs across the country. The band was nominated for numerous awards including a Channel O Music Video Award in 2004.
Ernie B St. Clair has had a passion for music from an early age. Michael Jackson is one of his main inspirations and he has been impersonating him since the age of 4 and currently plays the late mega-star in a show running at the Barnyard Theatre across the country. Arts and culture is in his blood and Ernie B St. Clair hopes to make great change in the South African entertainment industry by being actively involved in talent scouting and development in underprivileged areas throughout the country. His love for the entertainment industry extends beyond music – he studied both drama and is a qualified sound engineer. A newspaper described Ernie B St. Clair as having “loads of energy and appeal. In sweet voice and nifty moves.” His debut solo album is out later in 2010.
