05 Aug CIZA: New Apple Up Next Inductee
Continuing its support of burgeoning artists, Apple Music announces CIZA as the latest Up Next inductee. Launched for South Africa in March 2021, the Up Next program highlights the work of emerging artists across the globe.
The news comes right off the back of CIZA’s debut mini-album, “Golden Boy Pack“. Upon the announcement, the 19-year-old took to social media to show gratitude for this opportunity:
“This honestly wouldn’t be happening if it wasn’t for you guys streaming my music and supporting my brand, so I’d like the thank every single one of you for rocking with me. Africa & Beyond.”
CIZA’s “Golden Boy Pack” was crafted during the heavy lockdown under a sense of euphoria to contrast the doom and gloom of the pandemic. The lead single’s video, “Bank Notification“, surpassed 2 million views within two months.
