Something clearly went wrong when musical gifts were being distributed: Masego received a disproportionate number. He can rap, sing, play the sax, drums and keyboards, as well as produce, and he blends together genres as if boundaries don’t exist. And they don’t exist in the life of this remarkable young man either: he was born in Jamaica in 1993 as Micah Davis to a Jamaican father and an African-American mother, and he and his parents moved to a Christian community in Virginia (US) when he was a child. Masego prefers to describe his music as ‘Trap House Jazz’. He enjoys word games, as his stage name shows: Masego means ‘blessings’ in the Tswana language. A fitting name for this multitalented newcomer whose nickname in church was Blessing. Masego’s genre-busting sound has not gone unnoticed. In no time, the live version of Lavish Lullaby from the debut album Lady Lady (2018) had almost two million Spotify streams on Genius.com.
