Siyabonga Sibeko (born May 11, 1994), known by his stage name Aura, is a South African rapper, songwriter, producer and sound engineer. Raised in Soweto , Johannesburg , Aura expressed an interest in music as a teenager, and ventured into a musical career in early 2013, releasing a mixtape titled Mixed Emotions with former group M.S.I.G.S at the time.

In 2014, Aura decided to launch his solo career releasing his debut project called Days In The Hood (EP). This EP went on to generate over 8 500 downloads & granted Aura the opportunity to share the stage with the likes of Riky Rick & Stilo Magolide.

Still in the quest to expand his brand, in 2016 Aura went on to release a few singles while working on a new project which will later be named Press Play. In 2017 the rapper soon released his first full length mixtape Press Play, which is his best work to date.

Press Play has a total of sixteen songs with features from Metsys, Robyn Roxanne, Sam, Lindokay $tundee, West M Taliban & Size Killa. With this project, Aura managed to successfully blend old school sounds with the new school effortlessly.
