Born in Sabie, Mpumalanga (South Africa) and based in Pretoria, Haikuu is an Indie Rap Fusion artist who draws inspiration from hip hop and guitar music. At the core of his music is the idea of storytelling, which allows his raps to co-exists synergistically with his chosen guitar soundscapes.
As an individual who had to recover from a chronic, metabolic illness, he has determined to create music that is meaningful and impactful, while also being fun and engaging. He plays multiple instruments including rhythm and lead guitar, piano, bass guitar and drums.
In 2019, Haikuu formed a five-piece band called Haikuu & The 575s. They have performed at multiple venues across South Africa and have undertaken two national tours as well.
