Grego’s childhood passion has always been music but could not pursue musical career in school for many reasons such as the political environment – apartheid – which isolated and denied many cultural groups from opportunities to excel in the fine arts.
He was born to parents of Indian origin whose lineage is traced to the the indentured labourers who were brought to South Africa to work in the sugar cane fields. Inspite of prejudice and social adversity, Grego pursued his dream to inspire people through his music. He taught himself to play the guitar, piano, harmonica, saxophone and cello and is an accomplished gospel singer. In 2007, together with his wife, Dr Jessica Maistry and two beautiful children, Jehiel and Abigail, they moved to Australia where Jessica was offered a position as a Medical Doctor at the John Hunter hospital.
Grego’s spiritual experience and allegiance to Christ, as evident in his ministry of reconciliation and as an ordained minister of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is channeled through his music to bring hope and restoration which has endeared him to thousands across the globe.
His childhood dream of producing an original music album was realised in Australia and he is grateful to the people of Australia for receiving him into their hearts and being blessed by his music.
His resilience is an inspiration to all – to never give up on your dreams and to accept every obstacle as a stepping stone closer to the reality of your dreams. He believes that when you tune out the voices around you and listen to your heart – then nothing is impossible.
Grego has earned the following degrees. BA Theology ( Andrews University). Masters in Leadership and Management ( Avondale College) and currently he’s pursuing an MPhil leading towards a PhD in Systematic Theology.
