Osa Mazwai Releases 2 Electronic Dance Anthems – ‘Woah’ (It’s a Monster) And ‘What You Say’

Osa Mazwai is an independent artist and singer/songwriter based in Johannesburg, South Africa. He is a pop singer who uses his platform to advocate for human and gay rights.

Osa is the brother to famous South African songstress Thandiswa Mazwai.

Osa formally entered the artistic world in July 2020 through the release of his much anticipated single “What You Say” on digital platforms across the world. The single was well received and was the most played song in South Africa on its release day for the demographic 25-29 year olds In South Africa. The song was inspired by his own insecurities as a gay male in South Africa.

He only came out of the closet at 23 years of age. The question is thus where do you get back that lost time? Years of self-hate, embarrassment and self-loathing simply because society in general shuns homosexuals. The song thus says that no one is going to tell anyone who they get to love. It speaks not only to homosexuals but anyone who is discriminated against for who they love, whether it’s an issue of sexual orientation or interracial relationships or whatever. The hope for the song is that it becomes a beacon of hope for anyone who feels ashamed of who they are.They must always believe in themselves and be comfortable with who they are.

Osa flirted with his artistic prowess in his early days of high school at St Andrews College in Grahamstown. During this time he performed in various school plays and performed poetry and music in various school events including the School Freedom Day celebrations and Valentines

Day celebrations. He was also considered a great orator as a member of the schools Debating Team. Osa is releasing his highly anticipated third single in February 2020 titled “Woah (It’s a monster)”.

He holds a Masters degree in Economics from the University of Stellenbosch conferred in absentia in April, 2020, as well a BCom and BCom Honours Degree from Rhodes University.
