BIOGRAPHY

Sho Madjozi real name Maya Christinah Xichavo Wegerif is singer and rapper from Limpopo, South Africa. She won the Best New International Act at the 2019 BET Awards and the first female South African artist to win it. She also won Newcomer and Female Artist Award at the South African Music Awards (SAMA’s), held at Sun City in 2019.

Madjozi was born on May 9, 1992, in Shelly Village, Elim, Limpopo, the daughter of Rosemary Phaweni and Marc Wegerif who ran a non-governmental organisation which was made to assist people with their land claims. Her mother is of African descent while her Swedish father is of European descent. After her parents divorced at an early age, she was mainly brought up by her mother. Madjozi has a half-sister from her mother’s side. As Marc travelled regularly in particular regions of the continent, Madjozi had opportunities to travel with her father – she followed him to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania where he worked for the charitable organisation Oxfam while she was a teenager. She also spent some time in Senegal.

After graduating high school in Tanzania, Madjozi was offered a scholarship to Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts, US to study creative writing and African studies. While in the US, she started writing poems under a pen name of MayaThePoet. The poems were about politics, identity and race. Madjozi returned to South Africa where she took up a fellowship in studying at the University of South Africa, Johannesburg, while also planned songwriting for other local artists. After her return to South Africa, she began rapping and composing music under her stage name “Sho Madjozi”. Madjozi rose to fame after her collaboration with rapper Okmalumkoolkat on the track “Ngiyashisa Bhe” and the hit single, “Gqi”.

She is also a songwriter, actress and poet.
