Meet one of sportscene x PUMA Put Me On finalists, YUANG, (pronounced YOU-WANG) – singer, rapper and songwriter originally from Durban. 10 years ago he moved to Johannesburg to pursue his dream of making music and has since worked with artists such as Champagne69, Unarams, Zooccicokedope, Lifeofsallie & Nokana Mojapelo. When asked about his goal in the music industry, he said: “I just want to make escape music for the people that support me and at the same time make sure my mom and I are cozy. My goal is to do what I’m doing and (at) a faster pace”.

Yuang’s style combines a mix of hip-hop, R&B soul, and Latin//alternative rock and he considers himself a prolific writer. Put Me On might be over, but you can still get to know all the Put Me On 2019 finalists here.  Make sure you stay locked on our social channels for the next Put Me On feature on the Weekend Turn Up. Catch Yuang’s interview hosted at sportscene Studio in our flagship store at Sandton in the video below.
