Singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Mugisho was born in Congo and raised in Norway. When he was two the civil war separated him and his siblings from his parents.
Life took some dramatic turns, and the family weren’t reunited until almost 1,5 years later as refugees in Norway. This unexpected twist didn’t faze the family of ten, and Mugisho grew up in a happy household, filled with music and love.
A bright and sporty child, the family thought Mugisho might choose to study finance or perhaps pursue a career as a footballer, but he felt that music was the only option. And the story of how the dedicated student of music ended up getting signed by a major label before graduating sounds too good to be true.
Just two hours after googling “record labels in Norway” and sending a demo by email, Mugisho found himself sitting in the office of the director of A&R at Warner Music being offered a record deal.
Since then, Mugisho has released 4 singles, a 4-track EP titled "No Pressure" and added over 6M streams to his name, played shows like VG-lista at Rådhusplassen in front of 60.000 people, appeared on the acknowledged talk show, Lindmo - as well as headlining shows at Vulkan Arena and X-Games Hafjell.
With new music in the pipeline, 2019 is looking out to be a sublime year for the 26-year old multi-talent!
