Kwaye, the London-based Zimbabwean Soul music sensation best-known for being discovered in the back of an uber by a former A&R manager turned uber driver. Following his signing by Mind of a Genius records, the powerhouse label behind Gallant, he has quickly generated strong interest with debut single, Cool Kids, receiving millions of plays across streaming services.
