Sandile “Masandi” Mfusi started singing in church and was introduced to rhythm and blues by his aunt who had a love for Teddy Pendergrass, Marvin Gaye and Mariah Carey.

Fast forward a number of years, and South African women the country over are grateful to Masandi’s aunt for nurturing his love of the genre. A social science graduate, from Umlazi, Masandi cites many influences for his style including hip hop and new age R’n B.

Masandi is the first R'&B artist signed under K.O's CashTime Records. Before that he used to be part of a hip hop group called Niche Fam which had a huge following in Durban. They opened for Lil' Wayne, performed at the COP17 summit and other huge events in the city.

Masandi met K.O in 2014 in Durban at a party he had been performing at. The crooner decided to stick around as he'd heard that K.O would perform later in the evening.

Masandi approached K.O and suggested they collaborate on a track or two and was surprised to learn that K.O had heard of him and his music.

K.O then called Masandi and offered him the opportunity of being on his track, One Time, and the rest, as they say, is history!

Have a listen to Masandi’s angelic voice on his latest track, Ngane Yabantu:
