Neo Pitso was born in Welkom, South Africa, raised in Australia and is undoubtedly one of the hottest artists to come out of the Australian music industry. Having supported hip hop heavyweights such as The Game, Nas & Cassidy to name a few, has cemented his status in the industry as an artist to watch. He has also collaborated with global brands such as Adidas, BlackBerry and Coastal Contacts and has his image and likeness plastered on buses across Sydney.
His first release The Outlier, received rave reviews with critics praising it as an ‘…extraordinary leap for hip hop in Australia and a breath of fresh air’. Neo has gone from one achievement to the other in the early stages of his career and credits that to the quote he lives by:
Obsessed with Success
His song ‘We On’ became his first number 1 hit on South African station 5FM. The Welkom native has also been the recipient of numerous awards such as the ‘Iconic African Australian’ award and has received nominations for best song, best music video (We On) and Best Hip Hop Act.
Pitso owes his success to his ever-growing support network. In an effort to give back, he has been involved in various philanthropic endeavours. He has gone to high schools in South Africa giving inspirational speeches, hosted charity events and continues to raise funds for disadvantaged children in South Africa.
With no signs of slowing Neo Pitso is destined to become a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
