If you could dabble in another genre of music, what would it be?
Ya nee, right now I’m doing hip hop but I started from kwaito and I have been asked why did I dabble from kwaito to Hip Hop music I think this is the time to answer those questions.

When I was doing kwaito we started as a group which was doing well but didn’t work for me and I loved kwaito but I felt that I need to put more words on my music.

I wanted to inspire people and touch lives with my lyrics which the genre i was on didn’t give me 100 % of that so spending time with other hip hop artists I started understanding the culture and I told my self if they can I can so the answer is I’m Here to stay ain’t gonna be dabbling to any genre anytime soon.

Advice for the up-and-coming musicians up there?
It is never too late to be what you always wanted to be and to everyone who says you can’t just remove the “T” and move on that’s what keeps me going and pray to God for guidance he never leave his children in the dark Amen
