Wordsmith Felix is an 18 year old artist, record producer, songwriter, artist and composer currently signed under Swazi Jive Entertainment. He became a producer solely because he got tired of downloading instrumentals online to rap on. Therefore in 2009, he and his best friend to date, Devin Dee, got a hold of a copy of the DAW FL Studio 7, then known as Fruity Loops. He worked on it for years while trying to balance school and other priorities that his parents had set for him.

In a period of 7 years, Felix learnt and mastered the artistic craft of beat making and now feels confident about his work. To this day, he has been proclaimed as one of the best producers in Swaziland by various talented acts, namely 80Script, Supa CDQ, Oriiginelle etc. Now he has worked on a few records with the likes Una Rams‘ Nobody (Wordsmith Felix Remix), Tshegos Garden Remix and a plethora of other songs that can be found on his SoundCloud page. With him being one​ of the youngest producers and/or artists in the Swazi entertainment industry, he feels he has much more to prove than any other artist. Music is his day job and not a hobby.
