Sandile Cedric Mfusi Jnr aka Masandi, is an R&B/Soul singer, songwriter, actor and presenter born and raised in Durban South African. Growing up, Masandi’s talents were evident from a young age.
Masandi admits that when growing up, the only opportunity that he had to sing and ‘perform’ (in a sense) was at church. He believes that no only his voice began to take shape in that church, it was his character too.
There are thousands of talented kids in South Africa that wish to pursue a career in the entertainment industry and even once you have entered, there are still politics and adversities that you need to overcome. Masandi admits that getting into the entertainment industry is definitely a challenge, but he adds that it’s definitely worth fighting for!
Masandi has recorded the hit collaboration, ‘One time’ with K.O or Mr Cashtime, as Masandi refers to him. He describes the experience as eye opening and inspirational. Masandi has also been the opening act for international superstars like Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Trey Songz (My personal favorite!).
You can expect a lot more from Masandi in the near future. He is looking forward to bringing us more local and international collaborations as well as an album. Masandi’s message to the people is simple:
Put God first. Believe & work on your craft every, single day. Ultimately, it all boils down to the music.
