Toya Delazy

BIOGRAPHY

Toya Delazy, a pianist, producer, rapper, and singer-songwriter, has established herself as one of the most innovative artists in South Africa’s booming music business.

Toya Delazy, the BET Award nominee and East London based diva, is the creator of AfroRave, which combines Zulu lyrics with Rave rhythms. Her music is a combination of Jazz, Electro, and Hip-Hop (she calls it JEHP).

Toya has a deep feeling of the power of her Zulu ancestors, having grown up in Zululand. This understanding, as well as her personal identity as a queer, gender-non-conforming person, motivates her to focus positive energy and an empowering attitude in her songs.

Toya Delazy is a fearless and forward-thinking musician who creates a fully 21st-century sound that relies on her South African origin while being firmly entrenched in the cultural and aural identity of her adoptive community, “London Town.”

Toya Delazy’s experience serves as an example to others who want to create their own identity. She made her mark on the worldwide music industry in 2017 with the tune “London Town (Wes My Meds Remix),” which spent nine weeks at the top of the MusicWeek UK Urban Club chart and had considerable airplay from Rinse, Reprezent, and BBC Introducing.
