With a sonic palette ranging from hearty folk ballads to vibey R&B, his music dwells with genuine emotions and pop sensibility throughout, the breeze and lively energy from MUKZI’s music and performances are sure to capture your hearts and plant an earworm in you. MUKZI is set to record his debut EP in 2018.
