What do you think of South African music scene and where do u feel SA artists could improve to match the international stage if need be?
- There so much talent but I think most artists are not well marketed and I think they are improving because at least recently we have started to hear and see our musicians interacting with international musicians
Describe your success in music?
- I started writing and recording my own music three years back with no funds before finally getting a full time job which enabled me to proceed with achieving my dreams. I was fortunate to meet DJ XQ from Namo Music who now is my producer and business partner and since then we have worked together to finish my album which has 12 tracks. I have performed in and out of Gauteng, even though I don’t get paid for most of the gigs I perform in that doesn’t bother me at all because being on the stage and performing for people who can relate and appreciate my music is something that money can’t buy. I have recently shared the stage with big artists like Lira, toan, Speedy, Oskido, Tina and Ma orange
Do you have any future plans in South Africa in terms of love, life and music?
- I am going to release two more albums then I am going to pursue acting because it’s my other talent that not everyone knows except those I went to school with. I am talented in other things that people don’t know about and these include hairstyling, body painting, Interior decor and oil painting. As for love, I was involved with someone for 9 years and we broke up in 2009 so ever since then I am enjoying my life as a bachelor and I will meet someone when the time is right. I live my life to the fullest and believe that no one can stand in front of me and tell me I am incapable of achieving all my dreams so I don’t leave any door unknocked on nor leave any stones unturned.
Where do you get inspiration or which artists did you grow up listening to, how do you get to write your lyrics?
- I get my inspiration from things I see around me and stories Ihear. I grew up listening to Mahlatini, Brenda Fassie, Chicco Twala, Caiphus Semenya, Mashamplane and TKZee. I get to write my lyrics by making sure that people will get to relate to the songs I write so I write my songs based on people’s and my experiences in life .
Describe your music?
- I sing Afro pop/ Afro house and my songs are about love, HIV/AIDS, perseverance, spiritual journeys, respect and relationships.
