5 questions with Muzi
Ahead of his performance at Basha Uhuru, get to know Muzi a little better
Posted: Jun 24 2018
Muzi is a name that’s known in music scenes across SA and abroad. The young producer’s kicked it in Durban with Stormzy, collaborated on songs in the UK, made beats in Berlin and loads more. Most recently, his new album Afrovision has been heard around the world.
You were part of the first Nando's Music Exchange in 2016 and travelled to London for that. What was that like?
Nando’s was looking to do their First Exchange and it just so happened we (my manager and I) were in the right place at the right time. It was really a godsend moment for us. I can’t really recall how it actually happened. The experience was really dope, meeting other creative people from the other side of the world is really inspiring.
What's come out of that programme for you?
The relationships I’ve been able to build from it, with the team at Nando’s and with artists I never thought I’d even be able to meet.
What can fans expect from you at Basha Uhuru?
Great African music! I make these DJ edits specifically for shows, so I’m excited that I’m going to get the chance to debut a few of them at Basha Uhuru.
What do you plan on getting up to at the festival and what are you looking forward to?
Meeting new people. Being in the crowd and checking out other acts. Super excited to see BCUC!
What are you up to for the rest of 2018?
I’ve got a UK/EU tour coming up in July. I’m super excited about playing my new album, Afrovision, that side. I’m also going to be shooting as many music videos for the album as I possibly can, and also doing behind the scenes/track stuff.
Season 2 of #MuziMondays, a Youtube series where I remix African music, is also loading!
