Masego is bringing a new spin on today’s music and that includes his saxophone. Masego’s “traphousejazz” fuses elements from Hip Hop, R&B and Jazz music. Masego’s signature style and his saxophone skills create a soundscape that is very fun to follow. Standout hits like “Navago” and “Tadow” showcase Masego at his best.

“When I was 12 or 13, I started to learn the sax because of a woman I wanted to impress”GQ Magazine, Kathleen Johnston – Meet Masego, the next-level singer and saxophonist making jazz music cool again (2019)
- Before he was an artist, Micah Davis was doing his final senior project on south African culture. He came across the name “Masego” (Meaning “blessings” in Setswana). After discovering this and having his old church nickname being “Blessing”. It only seemed right for Davis’s stage name to be “Masego”
- While growing up, Masego found himself surrounded by over 200 vinyl records with timeless classics, and simultaneously having his peers expose him to music with trap influences. This heavily influenced Masego’s style of “TrapHouseJazz”
- Both of Masego’s parents were pastors. When he was a child, Davis would see the drummer smiling and having a good time playing at church and he wanted to have fun too. So, at eight years old he learned how to play the drums.
