Press Text
Toya Delazy is the godmother of Afro-Rave, offering up a truly 21st-century sound that draws from her South African heritage (she is a Zulu princess, great grand daughter of Princess Magogo), while remaining squarely rooted in the cultural and sonic identity of her adopted hometown, ‘London Town.’ It was Delazy’s single of the same name that truly announced her arrival on the global music scene in 2017, riding atop the MusicWeek UK Urban Club chart for nine consecutive weeks and receiving airplay from Rinse, Reprezent and BBC Introducing.

Described by Clash Magazine as “an inspiration”, the single was lifted from the artist’s third album, Un.Commodified, an independently-released record that prompted acclaim from GRM, i-D Magazine and Afropunk. The remarkable success of the release is another addition to an extensive list of accolades that includes recognition at the BET Awards, the Out Music Awards and South African Music Awards and a recent inclusion on SheSaidSo’s 2018 Alt-Music Power List.

Unconstrained by the limitations of genre, Toya operates in the space between jazz, electro, grime and hip-hop, synthesising her influences into a diverse aesthetic that transcends borders both artistic and geographical. Taking to the stage at Bestival, London Pride, the Old Blue Last, Africa Express and the Jazz Café, Delazy has developed a revelatory live performance that has to be seen to be believed.

Driven by a fearlessly independent spirit, an irrepressible passion for music, and an uncompromising commitment to being herself, Toya Delazy is an inspiration to those who seek to forge their own identity. This outspoken artist stands as an icon for the oppressed and repressed, sending out a clarion call to individualists across the world: stand tall and be proud of who you are.
