Darebaba.net – BEST MALE ARTISTE IN CENTRAL AFRICA NOMINEES REVIEW
Trésor is a multiple award winning and platinum selling 2015 break out singer, songwriter and producer signed to the legendary record label, Sony RCA in Africa and Ultra Records globally.
Trésor‘s first language is music but he is also fluent in English, French and Swahili. His songs, reflect a way of life shared by so many on the continent of Africa.
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 a car guard by day and security guard at 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, he quickly made 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.
Trésor released his debut album VII in September 2015, which he worked on for almost seven years. The album features collaboration from the likes of AKA, Beatenberg, Khuli Chana and The Soil. VII opened at number 2 on iTunes albums chart in South Africa.
Tresor‘s Mount Everest (Freddy Verano Remix) music video, a number one airplay hit in Italy and also a song that reached number one on the Global Shazam trending list, has reached over 1,000,000 views online.
It amazes me, when I see African talents doing exceptionally well in various ways positively in their career, Tresor from Congo is in no doubt am exception on this matter. Doing amazingly well and hitting it big in his music career. Will Trésor conquer other Male artistes from the central Africa region to win this category?
