"one of South Africa’s biggest breakthrough stars."
In four short years, Sho Madjozi has become one of South Africa’s brightest and boldest stars and an accomplished, multi award winning artist with a singular artistry that is earning her a devoted – and growing - audience across the world.
Sho (real name Maya Wegerif) has done this while remaining the pride of her Limpopo province birthplace and wearing the influences of her cosmopolitan upbringing loudly and proudly. By fusing languages (Tsonga, English and Swahili), genres (gqom, Afro-pop and hip hop) and fashion (the traditional xibelani skirt with Air Force Ones), Sho pays homage to her Tsonga heritage while embellishing on elements of it with a global sensibility.
