Sun El Musician: learn everything you didn't know about him in detail here

Sun El Musician is one of South Africa's fastest rising musical stars. His story is one of perseverance and determination and it inspires all who reads it. If you are yet to know more about him, here is the place you will find the best biography of him.

Sun El Musician, with hits under his belt and projects with well regarded talents such as Samthing Soweto and Ami Faku, and him have proved that their worth as artists. But there remains some mystery as to the man behind the name "Sun El Musician". This biography about him will serve to lift the veil from the reserved artist.

He was born on the 28th of March of 1989 in the of Rosetta, KwaZulu Natal along with his four siblings and they were raised by their domestic worker mother in the Rosetta farm, located in Mooi River. His parents separated when he was still a child. His parents both passed away in 2017, a month after his grandmother's passing.

In 2007, he enrolled at the University of KwaZulu Natal for a bridging course intended to pivot him to a course covering science. The course however did not work for him and he eventually lost interest, failed his first year and then dropped out.

He always had an interest that would lead him to a career in being a DJ and a music producer. During his first year at varsity he went to a party where DJ Tira was performing and this encouraged him to learn to use Fruit Loops, a popular production of software, albeit a limited trial version.

He recorded and provided a sample of his work to Demor Sikhosana, who is from the same area as him. Demor is famous as part of the Shana collective with Black Coffee and Shota. Demor was impressed enough to convince him to move to Johannesburg to work on Bucie's fourth album.

The work he contributed was impressive enough for Demor to sign him to his label. He was yet to become stable in his new life in Gauteng, so he was living with a friend. This is how he met Samthing Soweto, who liked his music and so did he. He then left Demor's label to pursue a more fleshed out career as an artist. They began working together in November 2016.

During one of their sessions they recorded in a makeshift studio with faulty equipment that was unable to filter out the sound of birds in the background. Sithole put away the song he was working on because he did not feel it matched his usual standards of quality. Four months later in March 2017, his younger brother convinced him to give it another chance.

He did so well and he sent the final product to Samthing Soweto, who called it a hit immediately upon hearing it. The song became, and the rest is history. The song catapulted him into the spotlight. He recently worked with Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz, who flew him out to the United States and paid for everything on the one week trip. He submitted three tracks for both their albums.
