Siphamandla Zwane aka Versatyl was born and bred in Durban, (Umlazi to be exact) South Africa. In 2016, aged 26, he began making music while studying for a degree in Psychology and Philosophy at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) during his second year.
He started as a songwriter/rapper and would later go on to produce his own music drawing inspiration from the likes of AB-Soul and Kendrick, Travis Scott and Mike Dean.
As a deep thinker, he uses his sharp intellect and creativity to fuse an unorthodox sound of Hip-Hop and Electronic music to differentiate him from the pack.
VERSATYL believes there is more to life than what meets the eye and he aspires to portray that in his music. This philosophy is what led to the idea behind his first project THE WORLDLY EP and the forthcoming full-length project titled ULTRA. ULTRA will be dropping later this year (2023) but the release date is yet to be confirmed.
For now, he’s focused on dropping a series of singles in order to build up the hype. His latest single titled, Felicia uses a popular TikTok video of a war cry from Wynberg Boys High School.
