Introducing Masego, the 'trap house jazz' musician whose viral mega-hits have marked him out as the foremost sax player of a generation. Here, the rising star talks about the influence of women, the pressure on artists to be 'fake deep', how 'Tadow' was made and the time he got bitten by a fan. He's happy to be in here, he says, our capital is his favourite city in Europe and this is his seventh visit. This time around, the LA -based musical multi-hyphenate is in town for a sold-out show at Shepherd's Bush Empire, a gig that was one of the best GQ went to in Little wonder, really, as it's the saxophone that kickstarted Masego's career. The son of two pastors, who was born in Jamaica but moved to Virginia in the US aged eight, he's been playing instruments and singing in church since he was a child, but it was only in that Masego's music started making waves online.

Mormonism has a lay clergy, so everyone serves in the Church. I agree we shouldn't continue if we can't accept each other as we are. My plan was to start school as soon as I got married but when he was told he would be going to another hospital, my masters got put on hold. There are some gems like admission to peep stone in a hat translation to the book of Mormon and angels with swords commanding polygamy, but if someone believes Joseph Smith really did stuff his face into a hat and translate scriptures about ancient jews coming to America, it means they are insane, and you can't reason with an insane person.
