From his humble beginnings in Empangeni in Kwa-Zulu Natal to worldwide attention from the likes of global tastemaker Diplo, Gorillaz main man Damon Albarn, Coldplay's Chris Martin, South Africas own superstar DJ Black Coffee and dance music legends The Prodigy, Muzi is the next generation of South African electronic musicians primed to set the global clubs, music festivals and blogs ablaze with a distinct homegrown and infectious new sound.

Muzi spent 2015 and 2016 in Europe which culminated in the release of his first full length album ‘Boom Shaka’ (!K7/ Sony Music Entertainment Africa) a bold fusion of hard hitting electronic music and African rhythms. Boom Shaka went on to receive critical acclaim worldwide.

In 2017 Muzi returned home to work on his sophomore album ‘Afrovision’.
