The Modern Day Mixtape – Toya Delazy

MixTape 2 – Ever wondered what your favourite bands / celebs / actors or artists listen to in their spare time, waiting for soundchecks, on tour vans, in airports, in hotels and bedrooms around the world? The Modern Day MixTape will sort that out for you.

We have had a softspot for Toya Delazy ever since she plonked some keys on an African day concert stage back in 2011 and we stopped what we were doing and paid attention. Her first major hit Pump It Up is forever remembered as a breakthrough African hit and was unlike anything South Africa had heard back then. Now living in the UK, Toya is pushing boundaries, speaking her mind and creating some mind bendingly cool art. Her latest single and music video for Funani are visual eye candy and once again showing us that Toya has the Captain Cool.
