Tsakani – Tsakani artist Gift ‘Mgiftoz SA’ Matjie is making a name for himself.

“I am a vocalist in different genres but popularly known for my amapiano songs. I receive my inspiration from some of our well-known artists namely Leehleza, Mark Khoza, Mlindo, and Samthing Soweto.

“I am experimenting with different genres and I am passionate about a lot of things including fashion, travelling and event planning.

Matjie said he is aiming for greater heights in the music industry.

Gift Matjie is a versatile artist.

“I see myself reaching greater things, dropping as much music as I possibly can, teaching as much as I can about the music industry.

“This industry has taken me on a learning journey. I have learnt that the industry is not only based on being an artist but it is also a business.

“I have made mistakes in the past, mistakes I may never repeat. This path is also designed for learning,” said Matjie.
