South African R&B Rising Star, Langa Mavuso, is unveiled by Moziak Magazine as he opens up about the process from hurting to healing in his debut, self-titled album, LANGA, supported by Johnnie Walker.

It’s been an honest retelling of journeys through heartbreak from the age of 23 through to the age of 26,” reveals Langa Mavuso.

He adds laughing: “Putting out an album is scary man, it’s like walking out of your house naked - and then asking people to tell you what they think of what they see. Who would do that to themselves?”

On Langa Mavuso’s collaboration with Johnnie Walker he shares: “Johnnie Walker embodies beauty, smoothness and craftsmanship - and I stand for the same in my own life.”

Moziak Magazine’s unveiling of LANGA comes off the back of Langa Mavuso’s highly successful album launch powered by Johnnie Walker which took place this past Thursday at Aurum Restaurant at The Leonardo in Johannesburg and was live streamed on @johnniewalkersa Instagram for the whole country to watch.


The R&B Rising Star brought to life his incredible body of work through live presentation with a 5-piece band and guest performances with Loyiso Gijana, Aimee George, Manana and Zoë Modiga.


“I’ve been working with Johnnie Walker for over a year now and they’ve always supported me. I’m excited to have them be a part of this musical journey with me,” shares Langa Mavuso.

Langa Mavuso unveiled his 12-track LANGA album just two weeks ago which landed him on the South African trends list on Twitter, secured the number #1 R&B album and the number #3 album in the country across all genres on Apple Music respectively.
