Chad Saaiman

Accomplished singer, songwriter and entertainment personality from Cape Town, Chad Saaiman, has been performing professionally for over a decade and his talents have allowed him to grace stages and attract crowds in several cities and countries worldwide. Named one of GQ’s Best Dressed Men in the country and Destiny Man’s Most Remarkable Men under 40, Chad Saaiman has worked with brands such as Adidas, Nespresso, Cape Town City FC, Woolworths, Sanlam Cape Town Marathon, Falke, Vivo Mobile, WWF, Canal Walk and many more.


The Sama-nominated recording artist has released 3 albums, 1 EP and several chart-topping singles such as Play (featuring YoungstaCPT), Seeing Stars, No Feelings (with Kerwin), Belief, Nights and many more earworms that continue to garner airplay around the country. Added to that, he has penned more than 60 songs playlisted to radio in his career, and some for other artists as well. From the Cape Town International Jazz Festival to Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts to touring with Brian McKnight and Tevin Campbell, Chad continues to deliver soulful and energetic performances at the highest level.

A University of the Western Cape Alumnus - majoring in English Literature and Communications, and more recently obtaining a Brand Management Qualification with Get Smarter and UCT, Chad believes that growth and constant improvement is pivotal to achieving his goal of longevity in the entertainment industry. The proof is in the pudding as he also is the
Managing Director of successful artist management and booking agency Stereotype Talent Management and is directly involved in the strategy, logistics and execution of The Black Ties and Kerwin.

2020 has also led Chad to his own radio show on Goodhope FM aptly called Saaiman Says. Chad carefully curates and structures his specialist show every Saturday and Sunday from 3-6pm. To add to this, Chad co-created and hosts a digital music show called The DNA, in partnership with Turnup Music and Vivo Mobile.

With the release of his latest single, Wrong Again, CS has ended 2020 in an even stronger manner than it started.
