He sees himself as a true African child. Growing up in challenging circumstances in many group homes, his peers became his brothers and sisters and together they kept each other
The rhythm of Africa is in his body and the hope of the continent in his voice. He grabs any opportunity that comes his way, spending his nights researching everything that sparks a light within him and every day he works towards making something of himself.
Says Sol; “My heart is filled with music and I have a dream to bring people together.” This dream is realized today as, with Custom Content Collective, he launches his Together Web Series where he plans to bring fellow young entrepreneurs together, those also wishing to uplift their community as they work towards realizing their dreams and goals.

Written by Zuko Sol and Siyolise Mkondweni and produced by Tjaart van der Walt, Together is an upbeat, catchy pop tune with African soul and vocal harmonies infused into it. It’s testament to Sol’s strong desire to bring people together and helping each other through life.

Zuko Sol wanted to create something funky and vibey with his fellow musician friends, something that everyone could relate to – and who can’t relate to ‘coffee in the morning’?
“Even if you’re not a coffee drinker, this is a song that can set a positive tone for the day,”
He explains that the song came together very organically as Bo, Choonkie and Phil joined him in the studio, along with producer Tjaart van der Walt; “Each artist brought their own unique vibe, styles and tones to the track, adding different flavours that resulted in this fun song. We start the day with a cup of coffee and we’re energized for the day.”
Sol continues; “I wrote Coffee in the Morning because I wanted people to have a beautiful day filled with positive energy. I had so much fun in studio and I hope the listeners have just as much fun.”
