MUSA Keys is a young South African amapiano artist known for his lush melodies and softly rhythmic synthesizers. Due to his love for music, which began at the age of 13 when he started playing the piano at church, the multi-hit track producer became South Africa’s most popular.
Musa Appreciate Makamu was born in Giyani, Limpopo Province’s northeastern area, and reared in Polokwane, where he began performing music as a youngster. From an early age, he has always been a creative youngster who has always wanted to accomplish the things he enjoys the most.
He went to Damelin to study sound engineering but withdrew out in his second year, claiming that he had already taught himself all he needed to know.
The self-acclaimed Tsonga Michael Jackson quickly established himself as one of the genre’s most enduring figures. Musa Keys states that his chosen genre “choosed” him, despite the fact that he started out doing trap music. He’s noted for his catchy melodies on hit songs including “Hey Wena” from 2019, “Samarian Boy” from 2020, which charted for nearly three months on MTV Base and in South Africa, and “Vula Mlomo” from 2021, which features amapiano heavyweights Sir Trill and Nobantu Vilakazi.
Musa Keys writes and records his own music, which he distributes through his own record company, Keys Records, of which he is the owner and creator. He wants his music to reach a big audience and have a lasting effect on the amapiano genre and music in general in South Africa.
He’s known for hit singles ‘Wena’, ‘Selema (Po Po)’, which has been in the Top 20 Apple Music and South African radio charts for the past 7 months, ‘Samarian Boy’, which charted for nearly three months on MTV Base, and his first double platinum single ‘Vula Mlomo’, which features fellow amapiano heavyweights Sir Trill and Nobantu Vilakazi.
