[WATCH] 16-year-old Josh Middleton on his love for music and international deal

Sixteen-year-old Josh Middleton will have his music heard across the world after signing a deal with international label Ditto Music.

The label has worked with the likes of Chance the Rapper, Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran.

Middleton has been singing since he was five years old.

He sat down with Azania Mosaka to share his latest single _Stay _and his success story.

He talks about how social media propelled his career.

I would say interact as much as possible but be careful of how. Social media is a powerful tool but you do not want to use it in the wrong way. Whenever fans DM me, I always respond, I hate it when I message people and they never respond because it shows that they never take the time to hear people's feedback.

Josh Middleton, singer

I am extremely lucky that I have got very supportive parents and they have supported me from day one.
