With a fleet of English and Afrikaans hits, two GHOEMA nominations and over a million YouTube views, Candy Benson is no doubt one of the sweetest forces to be reckoned with in the music scene.
Her brand new single titled ‘Gotta Be’ releases today. It’s honest and uplifting with a scent of heavenly organic pop and glimpses of Nashville country tones. Written and produced by hit-maker Daniel Baron, the song speaks about taking flight into the big wide world and following one’s heart.

I would like this song to inspire others to do exactly that.”- Candy Benson Candy is renowned for her enthralling stage performances and has long held great support across the nation.
