Born and raised in the western province of Cape Town, the 22-year-old artist has been making waves in the music industry for over four years, drawing inspiration from acclaimed artists such as Tyga, Drake and Swae Lee.

The track not only showcases Kassy K’s musical prowess but also provides listeners with an intimate glimpse into the artist’s personal experiences.
Speaking about the inspiration behind “Lies” Kassy K shares, “It briefly explains what I was going through at that particular moment whereby I was just dealing with love and unfaithfulness, so to me, I would say the song means that all you have to do is be honest no matter what the circumstances are.”
The creation of “Lies” was a seamless collaboration between Kassy K and producer JLLY. Recounting the process, Kassy K says, “It actually wasn’t a big hassle. I met JLLY on Instagram. He sent me the beat, and at that time that I recorded this record I was feeling a bit lonely just going through my thoughts, and next minute you know I was sitting with a jam. I’m a person that likes to make music when I’m alone or in my own comfort zone.”
With its infectious melodies, poignant lyrics and Kassy K’s distinctive voice, “Lies” is a standout addition to the artist’s growing discography. “Lies” is available to buy/stream now on all platforms: https://kassyk.lnk.to/lies.
