American ‘Trap House Jazz’ Artist Masego to Perform in Nairobi in May 2019

Jamaica-born American ‘TrapHouseJazz’ musician Micah Davis, known by his stage name Masego, has announced that Nairobi will be part of his 2019 Africa Tour, which sees him go to Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa, before foraying to Kenya’s capital, at the Carnivore restaurant on 4th May 2019.

Masego is an international, contemporary genre-bending entertainer who refers to his own music style as “TrapHouseJazz” or Emotion. According to Wikipedia, his collaborative record with FKJ “Tadow” has amassed over 100 million views on YouTube, while the solo record Navajo, first premiered by the Berlin platform “Colors”, streaming over 20 million times which then triggered a worldwide sold out tour.

Masego’s first studio album, ‘Lady Lady’ was released in September 2018, with his previous works including 2 extended plays (EPs) Loose Thoughts and The Pink Polo, both released in 2016.

Micah Davis was born to a Jamaican father and an African-American mother, with roots in South Africa. His father was in the U.S Air Force and his mother was an entrepreneur. Both his mother and father were also pastors and he was raised in a non-denominational Christian home. The military travels eventually led his family to Virginia. Here, Davis was shaped into the musician he is today. Davis used to beat on books at a young age, which eventually led to the drums becoming the first instrument he learned without formal lessons.

It was in high school when Davis adopted the name Masego after finding out his family had roots in South Africa. “Masego”(plural) means “blessings” in Setswana – {“Lesego” being singular}.

Masego’s 2019 Tour will also see him travel to Germany, the UK, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, France, Spain, Portugal and Hungary.
