Karabo Mogane records ‘Disney Junior’ theme song


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.

The Lion Guard introduces viewers to Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, who assumed the role of leader of the Lion Guard, a group of the bravest and brightest tasked with preserving the Pride Lands.

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.

The Lion Guard airs every week day on Disney Junior (Channel 309) at 18:30.
