Karabo Mogane records the theme song for the South African version of Disney Junior’s (DStv channel 309) hit animated series The Lion Guard. The Lion Guard is a brand new original TV series inspired by the all-time family favourite Disney classic, The Lion King.
Idols SA 2015 winner, Karabo is the first person in Africa to lend their voice to a Disney Junior theme track.
“I was totally blown away when Disney asked me to record the theme song for The Lion Guard. I grew up with The Lion King movies as a child, and to now be asked to sing the theme song for this new series that continues that epic storytelling is a real honour,” says Karabo.
Instead of assembling a team of young lions to serve with him, Kion challenged tradition by calling upon friends he believes are the best choices – Bunga, a fearless honey badger; Fuli, a confident cheetah; Beshte, a happy-go-lucky hippo; and Ono, an intellectual egret. Stories will include special appearances by Mufasa, Timon, Pumbaa, Rafiki, Zazu and Kion’s older sister, Kiara, the future Queen of the Pride Lands.
