What got you into Hip hop?
As a kid growing up, I always struggled to confidently express myself, I was encouraged to start conceptualizing my thoughts and ideas on paper before expressing them.. That initially is what set me on My path to discovering hip -hop. Through music, I found a comfortable medium to fully express My inner thoughts.
Who did you work with on your projects so far?
I’ve recently just dropped My debut album titled “Based On Talent”. The executive producer on the project is the legendary Namibian music producer Elvo. The multi talented and award winning producer Aka Dr Mavovo took me under his wing and mentored me through out the entire project. Elvo also took it upon himself to introduce me to a highly acclaimed hip hop living Jerico who needless to say was a ecstatic at the opportunity. Jerico ended up doing a verse on one of the Songs on the Album called FLAVA, it is the third Song on the Album that also features the highly talented Dj Dozza on it.
Legends you wish to work with one day?
It would be Great to work with Kanibal musically, he’s unmatched in My opinion… facts !!hahaha 😆
What’s the Motive behind your Writings?
Through my music, I aim to motivate and inspire the youth. instil a sense of self confidence in them. Encourage the young ones to pursue their dreams with a combustible passion, stimulate their minds and push them to become the masters of their own destinies .
What keeps you going as an artist?
My personal motto is and has always been ‘leave nothing to chance ‘ if you want it go get it.and thats just how i choose to live my life.
