TRESOR (French for “treasure” and pronounced “Trezor”) is multi award winning and platinum selling 2015 breakout singer-songwriter & producer signed to the legendary record label Sony RCA in Africa and Ultra Records globally (Ultra records is home to Avicii, Calvin Harris,Deadmaus just to name a few).
Trésor’s first language is Music but he is also fluent in English, French and Swahili. His songs reflect a peregrine of life shared by so many on the continent of Africa, but few are able to express their experiences in a way that captures the ear so universally and directly. Orphaned at an early age, he left Goma in the Eastern DRC after finishing high school and headed for Durban in 2007 with the sole purpose of pursuing a professional music career. It was a new world for a small town boy, having to learn English in a short space of time.
Despite the challenges, Trésor managed to survive earning a living working both as car guard by day and security guard by night. In between the two jobs he managed to hustle his way into the local Durban music scene, linking up with local musicians and music makers and quickly making a name for himself. He co-founded Durban afro-fusion band Maisha in 2008 and was soon playing alongside the likes of Lira, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Freshly Ground, Jesse Clegg, Prime Circle and Johnny Clegg just to name a few.
TRESOR has written songs for Idols South Africa, Heavy K and many other established local acts. He penned two songs for Zahara and also collaborated with the singing sensation on a major song called ‘Limbisa’ and another title called ‘Brighter day’ on her’PHENDULA” album which went triple platinum.
Afro-pop sensation TRESOR Riziki is set to electrify café Roux, Cape Town.
