I sincerely believe that if you really want something in life the forces of nature will conspire with their all to help you get it. However we also need to understand that wanting something and needing it are two different scenarios with completely different rewards. It all depends on what you’re willing to sacrifice in order to get whatever it is you need or want. With that said and done whether you need or want something you first have to give something, the real question is how much are you willing to give?
One thing that’s absolutely undisputable is that it can never be too late to follow or chase your dreams depending on which one of the two you choose. Sometimes life will take us on unexpected journeys just to make us realise what is really important. I’ve always respected trend setters hence you don’t have to wait for it to be done by someone else before believing you can do it yourself. Tonight we look at the story of a young lad who did what he needs to do in order to can do what he wants to do ladies and gents I present to you K-black-Tha-Kinetic G.
This is a young lad who has always loved poetry and hip-hop not realising that maybe this was something he was destined for. Growing up he listened to a lot of Rap music and one of the leading hip-hop magazine’s Hype Magazine played a significant role in igniting his passion for hip-hop a spark further. Destiny has a way of presenting itself even when we tend to ignore the signs at times. It was not until 2012 when the young lad decided to give it a shot when he recorded his first single track titled “one2heavy”.
We are living in a digital era so recording the single was easy stuff for the lad, the real hustle came when he had to build hype around that track. The era of radio and cd’s is quickly becoming a thing of the past, being replaced by laptops and smartphones. The young lad has in a couple of years been able to make the most of the so called era of globalisation, through channels like Reverbnation, Qplay, Audiomack and Kasimp3 the world has been allowed the platforms to access his work.
Kinetic G is currently occupied as a retail associate at Edgars and works on his musical craft when he is off from his formal job. Know the saying “every second counts”, well this is the case with this lad because despite his job he has managed to take his music to the next level. In this short space of time Kinetic G has managed to work with international producers like Navik music and Rikan, he has also managed to work with an international artist from Bangladesh named Xian.
Music seems to be the career many young people choose to embark on and this can at times be not such a good thing. This point was emphasized when Kinetic G decided to enhance his musical undertaking. He struggled to find producers who were professional and could offer him quality sound and working on a limited budget didn’t help the situation. However someone once said “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” I’m still to find a man who can dispute that point.
Kabelo Khangela is a 20 year old from Mamelodi. As a boy he attended primary school at Mononong and later on he moved to Tsako-Thabo Secondary school where he did his matric. He is currently pursuing his tertiary education and he’s studying for a financial accounting Bachelors Degree.
Although his day job restricts him from doing many gigs he has in the past made appearances on shows in the North-west and around Pretoria. Kinetic G is currently working on his debut mix-tape which is due to drop later this year. His music has made it into the #10 Reverbnation chart for Pretoria and his track “Alcohol Species” is part of the hoodbase chart on Tshwane FM 93.6. You can get hold of his music on Reverbnation.com/kabelodakineticgeekblack, Soundcloud.com/Kinetic_music, Hulkshare.com/Kineti_music, Audiomack.com/K-black-tha-kineticg and Kasimp3/kblack_kineticg.
Kinetic G has dreams of one day touring the world through request and demand for his music. He has proved before that perseverance always pays off and it’s without doubt that he has places to go as long as he keeps doing what matters to him. Fans and other interested followers can keep tabs on him at http://facebook.com/kblackthakineticg or http://twitter.com/kinetic_music send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Whatsapp him on 0737651455.
Once you have found what matters to you in life make sure you don’t let go because that might be the purpose you were created for. Tonight we have learned that sacrifices never go unrewarded and hard work is always compensated. The journey towards your dreams might be hard but what should motivate us is that it can be done. Nothing in life is impossible because even the word it self emphasizes that I’m possible so get out there and blow the world off its feet.
