This month, Masego will perform at two U.S. festivals – One Music Festival in Atlanta, GA (October 9) and Suwannee Hulaween in Live Oak, FL (October 28-31). He recently released Studying Abroad: Extended Stay, the deluxe edition of his acclaimed 2020 EP, via EQT Recordings and Capitol Records. The collection includes the hit “Mystery Lady Ft. Don Toliver” plus the beautifully reimagined “Mystery Lady (Sego’s Remix).” Combined global streams of “Mystery Lady” have soared past the 138 million mark. Masego collaborated with Kabza De Small and DJ Maphorisa for the Amapiano-style reimagination of “Mystery Lady” heard on the Scorpion Kings Remix, released last month.
He recently performed “Queen Tings,” a song from his debut album, with Tiffany Gouché on the FOX series “Our Kind of People.” A sample of Masego’s track “Navajo” can be heard on the new Drake album, Certified Lover Boy.
Masego is a singular talent and surprising presence who cites 1930s Harlem big bandleader Cab Calloway as a guiding spirit and was mentored by DJ Jazzy Jeff. Vibe hailed Masego as a “self-taught saxophonist, pianist, singer, and producer here to give an old soul sound a fresh new take in today’s hip-hop climate.” He had a breakout hit with his 2018 debut album, Lady, Lady, which included the hit single “Tadow.” With more than one billion combined global streams, the song is certified Platinum in the U.S., Diamond in Brazil and Gold in Mexico. XXL observed, “Masego has created and curated a new wave” and NPR Music praised him as “one of music’s most promising chameleons.”
