Zimbabwean Artist SIPHO. Among Complex Magazine's "UK R&B Acts To Watch In 2022"

The Zimbabwe-born, Birmingham-raised artist SIPHO. has been releasing music since his teen years but really elevated to new heights in 2021 after the release of his self-produced AND GOD SAID… EP. 2022 looks set to be an even bigger year for the 21-year-old, with a new project SHE MIGHT BLEED set to take him to higher heights. It’s already produced “OCCASION”, one of his strongest tracks to date, which he debuted on the music platform COLORS with goosebumps-inducing effect. Expect to see and hear a lot more of SIPHO. as the year rolls out. 

SIPHO.’s love for music came very early on. “I realised I could sing a bit when I was 6 years old,” he says. “By 8 years old, I was teaching myself guitar—bought for me by my dad—from watching YouTube videos. I also liked to fiddle about with instruments at school, in the music department. I got an idea of what a chord was and things snowballed from there.” 22-year-old SIPHO. is far beyond his years when it comes to his pen, articulating thoughts and wisdom of a seemingly much-seasoned soul. Signed to iconic West London label Dirty Hit, his first two projects have unsurprisingly garnered critical acclaim, his first UK tour unsurprisingly a sold-out affair. Early spots on Jools Holland, COLORS, and Majestic Casual further certify his effortless live performances as essential viewing. 

Now putting in the work on his debut album, and with his first festival season around the corner, Chantelle Fiddy took a moment out of fangirling and spoke to SIPHO. about defying convention, songwriting styles, his ideal dinner date, and breaking the mold.
