Johannesburg:  Sandile Mfusi, aka Masandi is no stranger to the entertainment industry – established TV actor, respected songwriter and up & coming performing artist, he has come a long way since his first taste in 2011 as a member of the hip-hop outfit Niche Fam.

Masandi’s time with Niche Fam drew him into the wider entertainment industry and in 2013 he took his acting career to the next level as he played Jojo in the hit drama series ‘Isibaya’. The is role was closely followed by his first leading part in 2014’s feature‘Sugar Mama’.

His debut solo single ‘Bring It Back’ brought him to the attention of legendary rapper K.O., with whom he went on to collaborate on the hit single ‘One Time’. He has since gone on to work with Big Nuz, Gemini Major, Aewon Wolf and Captain Blu (Nigeria) and has shared stages with Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and Trey Songz. All the while he has been carving his own niche with a fresh blend of R&B, soul, maskandi, and hip- hop.
