Heading out on tour across Europe this summer, he is set to perform at some of the planet’s most iconic events, including his very own One Man Show concept in Paris and Lisbon.
In 2013, Shimza was signed to the highly acclaimed Soulistic Music record label, positioned alongside some of South Africa’s most successful artists including Black Coffee and Culoe De Song.

As well as delivering explosive performances at RESISTANCE Cape Town and Boiler Room Johannesburg, Shimza has shared his unique sound with audiences in New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Manchester and Sicily.
