MUSIC EXCHANGE (#MEX19), South Africa’s only entertainment-economy-focused conference, returns to Cape Town for the ninth time from 13 to 15 September 2019 at the impressive Radisson Red Hotel at the V &A Waterfront.
As part of what has become a highly anticipated Cape Town annual imbizo, MEX, well known and respected for delivering the very best and relevant players in the global music economy, has done it again in welcoming Candice Pillay at this year’s gathering.
Candice will be speaking on Sunday 15th at 11am
Born and raised in Pietermaritzburg, Pillay has come a long way from her humble KZN roots.
Working with iconic names in the music industry, Pillay has added her genius to tracks made famous by the likes of Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dog, Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, Schoolboy Q, Timberland, Anderson. Paak, Tinie Tempah and Calvin Harris.
Today she is well installed and celebrated in Los Angeles, California, as a revered singer and seminal songwriter.
As one of MEX19’s Sunday keynote speakers, Pillay will deliver an address that investors in the South African and bigger global music economy will truly benefit from being in attendance.
Better news still for followers and fans of Pillay’s lyrical and vocal prowess is that she’s set to release her next album, along with tour dates in 2020, all while continuing to co-produce, write, and redefine artist development with many up and coming artists around the world.
“Securing the calibre of Candice Pillay is a coupe for MEX19, and the greater South African music community,” MEX19 convener, Martin Myers celebrates. “We are truly excited and humbled to have her share her journey and impart invaluable, real-life learnings with all MEX19 attendees.”
