Hailing from the coastal city of Durban, Majozi is a proudly South African musician who wears his heart on his sleeve – quite literally. He has tattoos dedicated to his faith and to his mother - two very defining aspects of his life, both of which have inspired the music he writes.
He burst onto the scene in 2013 with his catchy debut EP, Marvelous Light, before signing to Universal Music South Africa in 2014. After his follow-up, first full length album, "Fire”, debuted in the iTunes Top 3, the music industry really started to take notice. In 2017, he went on to receive a SAMA (South African Music Awards) nomination for Best Adult Contemporary Album for “Fire”.
In October 2018, Majozi released a self-titled album that gained immediate success and recognition. Two singles from the album, “Waiting”
Majozi’s music is refreshingly sincere and so is his attitude towards others in the industry. It’s this infectious spirit of kindness, alongside his raw talent, that caught the eye of globally renowned company, Fender. He now proudly serves as one of only three ambassadors for them in South Africa.
