Young South African jazz vocalist, Vuyo (Vuyolwethu) Sotashe, is gradually making his mark in the New York jazz scene. Sotashe moved to the New York City in 2013 after being awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to pursue a master's of music at William Paterson University.

Since then, he has gone on to win first prize at the very first Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival Vocal Competition in 2014 and performed on the festival's main stage in February 2015.

More recently, he won the Audience prize award and placed second over-all at the Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition in 2015, held at the annual Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.

At the same festival he placed third in the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Vocal Competition, where he was the very first male vocalist ever to place in the competition's finals.
