Lloyiso was first introduced to us when he took part in season 11 of Idols South African addition.

He went up to the top five, and since then, he has been building on his music, posting videos of him singing covers of other musicians on social media platforms like TikTok.

He had covered some very high profiled musicians, including Adele (Easy on me), Rihanna (What now), Burna Boy ( Bank on it) and many, many more.

His crisp voice is perfect, and we know how some of these songs are so difficult to sing, even for veteran musicians. Lloyiso changed his name from Loyiso to Lloyiso, and he added the extra l because he didn’t want to be mistaken for Loyiso Bala.
