Willy May is an upcoming artist based in Cosmo City Johannesburg, but originally from Free State in a small town called Botshabelo. He started singing in church from an early age, and slowly started shifting to other genres, like Hip Hop and African Soul Music. His other skill sets include rapping, singing, songwriting as well as being a certified song engineer.
He insists that his style of music is unique and describes it as a fusion of soul, trap and distinct African sounds. “It’s more like Musiq Soulchild had a kid with Thandiswa Mazwai”, he quips. He hopes to bring a new voice to the industry and says: “I always believed that people who scratch the surface of being different, their music always lasts forever. And that’s what I want do with my craft.”
