Polo: A Man Stepping Into The Spotlight (PHOTOS)

If you’re one of our regular readers, then you’ve probably never heard of Polo Cummings. At least not in his own capacity. But that might all change soon.

Polo has been performing as part of the US-based a cappella group Naturally 7 for a number of years now, and was recently in South Africa with the group as part of Michael Bublé’s tour of Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Polo is now set to step into the spotlight as he begins to launch his own solo career.

As these things usually go, a friend-of-a-friend got in touch with us and told us about Polo. He asked if we’d be keen to do some work with him and we jumped at the opportunity. We have not regretted it in the slightest.

In the next few weeks we’ll be releasing a pretty in-depth interview with the man about his Staten Island upbringing as one of nine children, and how he found himself chasing his musical dreams. We’ll also be posting a live performance of his first single as a solo artist, accompanied by some of Cape Town’s finest musos.

But for now, here is a photo series that our man behind the lens, Imraan Christian, shot with Polo during his time in Cape Town.

    I remember Napoleon ( Polo ) as a young boy when he was a member of our church. I am so blessed to see what God has done for him and through him. He is one of the most talented young men I know, He plays and sings like an angel. God bless him.

    I’m one of many that have played music with and been inspired by this man. Two words of advice for planet Earth: Buckle. Up.
