Speaker Profile

Candice Pillay

Job TitleArtist (South Africa)


A real story of undeniable talent and determination. Born and raised in the small town of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Her journey from Africa to America was not an easy one. Her relentless sprit and passion for music drove her to accomplish amazing results. Solo artist sighed to Interscope Records, Kid in a Korner and a super star writer published under Universal Publishing.

Having worked with some of the best in the music industry today  (Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, School Boy Q, Timbaland, Anderson Paak, Tinie Tempah, Calvin Harris, and many more) she’s one hell of an example to follow for the dreamers out there. 

Candice also started developing/co-producing the sound for a very fresh new boy band called "WHY DON’T WE"  The band has gained much success recently signing their record deal to Atlantic Records. Sold out tours across the world boasting her impressive catalogue on this phenomenal group. 

Now multiple Platinum, Grammy nominated, singer/songwriter Candice Pillay is set to release her own album this year.
