Coming off the success of CAN DO!’s 2019 #UnbreakableStories documentary series, which featured electric rapper YoungstaCPT and trailblazing global artist Busiswa Gqulu, CAN DO! is proud to announce its third instalment of #UnbreakableStories in partnership with producer, singer- songwriter, and sonic pioneer, Muzi.
Born in Empangeni, KwaZulu Natal, to humble circumstances, Muzi has amassed a core following with his avant-garde re-interpretation of traditional Zulu sounds fused with elements of electronic and pop nuance, which are expressly delivered on his debut project Afrovision (2018) and its genre-defining successor, ZENO (2019).
At 27, his impressive catalogue has already seen him travel Africa, Europe and in 2020, the USA, even making fans of some of the most artistically progressive minds in the world, including Major Lazer’s Diplo, British Grime legend Stormzy, and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
“Overcoming multiple harrowing personal and career adversity at every juncture of his life to become the shining beacon of artistry and independence that he is, Muzi was a natural choice for this series,” says Nampak Bevcan Director of Marketing and Sustainability powerfully, Klaus Hass.
“Just as a can is malleable and able to withstand intense pressure without breaking, Muzi is showing us that he embodies the #Unbreakable spirit that we hope to encourage through the values of our product. We are excited to have him on board.”
CAN DO! presents Muzi: An Unbreakable Story is set to air exclusively on Channel O later in the year, supported by a live music experience which will celebrate his monumental story.
