Farai Shelton is a singer and songwriter who seeks to inspire and motivate people, this fused with his vocal talent and passion for sound has lead to his pursuit of a career in music. Get to know a little more about the afro pop musician.
“I would say I’m an inspirational lyricist whose influenced by a blend of different sounds including jazz, house music, pop and more. I got inspired to make music firstly by the love I had for music dating back to a time when I didn’t even know I could actually sing,
also the need to inspire and motivate people in their day to day lives has kept me fueled.
My music is unique because I mix different languages and sounds, it appeals to a diverse listenership which has been really working well for me.
I’ve got a single that I’m working on since my move to South Africa. I have a ton of unrecorded song’s so I’m also working on doing a live recording
“Afro MashUp” hopefully early next year 2019.
Starting on my own as a solo artist I got to see how hard it can be, established artists and industry gurus need to do more in terms of identification of talent and grooming the next generation.
I’d encourage upcoming artists to remember that the most important thing is to follow your heart and don’t give up on your dreams, look for someone better than you who can impart some good knowledge to you and don’t be afraid to knock on doors and pitch yourself.” -Farai Shelton.
