Muzi’s latest single, Chocolate Dreams features South African vocalist Una Rams and Nigerian singer Saint Seaba. The official video of the song features a performance from Rams that brings life to the track’s blend of house and afrobeat, firmly grounded in the strong tradition of African dance music. 'Chocolate Dreams' follows his latest singles 'Zenzile' (peaked in Shazam’s UK Dance Top 20) and 'Desire' (feat. Yanga Madlala) which reached Top 30, and No.17 respectively on 5FM's SA Top 30 Chart and featured on hugely successful ad syncs for the Apple iWatch, Ralph Lauren and Nandos, firmly demonstrating how emerging artists can bypass traditional routes to achieve global exposure.
From his humble beginnings in Empangeni in Kwa-Zulu Natal to global attention from the likes of global tastemaker Diplo and dance legends The Prodigy, Muzi is the next generation of South African electronic musicians primed to set the global clubs and the blogs ablaze with a distinct but infectious new sound.
Apart from spending the greater part of the 2016 in Europe exporting his bold electronic sound to hungry new ears, Muzi also released his first full length album Boom Shaka (!K7/ Sony Music Entertainment Africa) to great critical acclaim. Earmarked by some of the biggest music platforms and tastemakers around the world as the next big thing in South African electronic and dance music, Muzi has established himself as an integral voice in the new wave of music from Mzansi.
