The artist i find amusing is Dax. It’s not about him being a great rapper but it’s about the way he writes. His songs can either showcast his emotions or can bring about Biblical events
What is the Good and the Bad thing about being a n artist around your hood according to Your experiences?
The good thing is that you get fame which isn’t always needed if your only heared around your hood. You need to get the spotlight so the whole world knows your name. At least thats what im aiming for.
How is the response from Your Family and Friends towards Your music craft?
In life you wont always get both recognitions. Some of my friends and family members are thrilled with what I’m chasing. What makes me happier is that my Mom finds it as a hard work of determination in which I’ll soon enough prosper.
What are few basic things do you do before you write such good music?
I first listen to the instrumental and allow it to talk to me. It’s one thing to know how to write but its another thing to know how to compose a song out of what you wrote if you dont know what was expected on that particular beat.
Which local Artist would you be happy to have a collaboration with and why?
Mthimbani, because growing up i was ingaged engaged to his songs. The one song that made me enjoy his music is “Dangerous Love” which I still have on my playlist.
