Franchisee and Director: Traxtudio Boland
Wynand Breedt




Wynand Breedt is an exciting new South African born and bred singer originating from the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town and now residing in the Boland Area. Wynand’s music genre ranges from ballads with a deeper meaning to something with a beat, to dance to. His vocal range allows him to sing with a deep low voice filled with warmth and passion. Indeed one of his affectionate nick names is Mr Bass-man! This is but the tip of the iceberg!

Wynand’s public singing started at 8 years old when he sang as a first soprano. He was a member of numerous choirs, including the Tygerberg Youth Choir where he started singing aged 13. During these early years Wynand participated in annual Eisteddfods and singing competitions. At aged 15, he joined the Cape Youth Choir starting as a first soprano, quickly becoming the deep bass Wynand is today. Mr Bass-man was born. At this time he commenced private vocal lessons which helped him develop his solo vocal career, allowing him to participate in musical productions such as Jukebox Mania amongst others. Over the following years Wynand continued singing in front of live audiences either as a solo artist or part of groups in various productions.

Later down the line, Wynand decided to diversify his musical skills by studying to become a music tutor, focusing on beginner students. This let to the birth of Wynand’s Music Studio. During this process he revisited his long held dream to record his own album. Through good fortune and being introduced to Riaan Steyn from Traxtudio, this dream has become a reality. And so his first album “GEE MY EEN WENS” was produced and released.

Wynand recently bought the Traxtudio Boland Franchise - a digital recording studio on the Fleury Farm in the Nuy-Valley, Worcester.

Music Background

Ifriky Tadadjeu started his music journey at the age of 15 as a tenor in "Chorale Notre Dame de Lourdes" in Yaounde, Cameroon, under maestro Francois Junior Ndong. During his first years into music, he mostly learned from books, workshops and other music directors including maestro Reymond Pende and maestro Isaac Sapouma. After about 4 years of hard work, he had learned enough to become a choral conductor, first as an assistant to Maestro Ndong, then as music director of "Choeur D'anges" choir in Buea, Cameroon. While he was quickly noticed as an upcoming music director in Yaounde, he co-founded the still active "Joy Spirit Singers" with his friend, the tenor Geraud Modeste Nlateu. At the same time he developed as a tenor soloist and composer. In 2006 he engaged in competitions and over the following two years he won various prized in Cameroon both as a contestant and as a coach.

He met Prof Kamal Khan, director of the University of Cape Town Opera School, in 2009 after he moved to Cape Town, South Africa, to further his studies. Working with Prof. Khan marked a major part of his development as a singer. He explored the different facets of his lyric voice and quickly began to be noticed in Cape Town as a cross-over lyric tenor. Still in 2009, he joined the Assumption Catholic Church music ensemble, which was later called "Fine Assumption Band". He co-initiated an annual FAB concert which hugely contributed to the development of the music at the parish and the members of the band.

He began performing more and more in Cape Town as a guest artist in a number of corporate functions and concerts, including the prestigious "Ball of Hope". Between 2010 and 2012 he met international sopranos Sally Presant Nicholls, Aviva Pelham, Sibongile Mngoma and Wendy Fine. They contributed hugely to his building as they shared their experiences and gave him advice on the way forward on his musical journey.

His drive for musical innovation is the reason why he started the "Ifriky Music Projects" concept. Some of these "music projects" include the concert series and recording project called "For the Love of Music", and the concert concept called "A Voice Unleashed". He also puts together his compositions which he does not classify as belonging to any particular genre, as he allows the listeners to classify them however they wish. They include "It's OK", "Sei Tu", "If I Fall", "The Songs that Come with Pain", "For Them", and many others.
