Cape Town – South African singer Oshri has been signed by Akon and has been featured on the top 40 Billboard charts.

You might remember the sexy South African singer from when he competed on the Trace Music Stars competition, where he walked away as the winner. 

The show was mentored by Wyclef Jean and broadcast on Trace Urban.

After that win Oshri moved from Cape Town to New York to continue working with Wyclef Jean. While there the talented performer was invited to perform at the Trace Urban Music Awards in Paris in 2015; he was then spotted by international star Akon, who signed Oshri to his label.

Shortly after the deal was finalised, Oshri began working on his EP with songwriter, Mike Campbell. Mike is known for co-writing the song, Say Something by Christina Aguilera and Great Big World. 

One of Oshri’s latest songs is Bad Reputation and it was recorded in Cape Town with fellow local singer Jimmy Nevis. The video for the song was also filmed in The Mother City.

Oshri is planning to record additional material with Jimmy during his visit to Cape Town next month.
