Majozi is a proudly South African musician from the coastal city of Durban who wears his heart on his sleeve. Literally. He has tattoos dedicated to Jesus and to his mother, two very defining aspects of his life, both of which inspire the music he writes.

At the age of thirteen, he started to teach himself guitar, which eventually led to him studying a foundation course in jazz and popular music at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. He describes his music as being Indie-folk with subtle influences of electro, and he attributes his faith as one of his musical inspirations.

In 2013, he released his first EP, ‘Marvelous Light’. It cracked the iTunes Top 10 and was number one in the singer/songwriter category. Following the online success and popularity of the EP, his single “The River” was playlisted on 5FM, Kfm and stations across the country. His music video for “The River” was also hugely popular.

Over the past year, Majozi has been steadily climbing the South African music ladder, getting the opportunity to open for Matthew Mole, Gangs of Ballet, Zebra and Giraffe and international artists Yoav and The Lumineers. His most recent achievements include opening for Mango Groove at Durban Botanical Gardens, playing at the OppiKoppi Music Festival and the White Mountain Music Festival.

There’s a lot to look forward to for this humble musician and now that he has officially signed with the esteemed Universal Records, it seems the only way is up.
