Masego unveils the future of music
He’s a singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist: he plays the alto and tenor saxophone, piano, cello, trumpet, drums, and guitar. If the music world could put him in a sorting box, he would be split up between jazz fusion, future soul, hip hop, R&B, neo-soul, and funk. Fortunately, there’s no need for that, as Masego has his own name for his unique style: "TrapHouseJazz". Get tickets to Masego on StubHub and experience his fresh whimsy.
Micah Davis’ story
Masego’s given name is Micah Davis. He was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1993, then moved to Newport News, Virginia as a child. Both of his parents were pastors, and Davis gives credit to the church for instilling in him a love for music early on in his life. He names other influences, too: Andre 3000 and Lupe Fiasco, among others. Jazzy Jeff, who found fame through his partnership with Will Smith as DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, was his first mentor. He is a completely self-taught musician – he learned the drums by first drumming on books as a child – but he can’t read or write music. In high school he discovered his family’s South African heritage and, while researching the culture, he also found his stage name – Masego – which means "blessings" in Setswana. Though he had always loved music, he admits that he began pursuing it more seriously to impress a girl! After a brief stint at Old Dominion University, Davis dove into his music career fully. In 2013 he began using SoundCloud to share his music and about two years later released his EP with Medasin, "Pink Polo". In 2017, the music video for "Tadow", on which he collaborated with FKJ, went viral. That single, among others, was included on his official full-length debut album, "Lady Lady", which he released in 2018. By 2019 he had nearly 3 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Davis also started moonlighting as a casual comedian: he created Uncle Sego, a somewhat lewd character modelled on his long-time friend who works at Dairy Queen.
