Q. Welcome To @Tsa_pitori Online Magazine. How Are You Doing?
A. Thank you for having me.
Q. Define music and kindly tell us who inspires you?

Q. With that said what’s your signature sound?
A. Kasi motswako rap.
Q. Why Hip Hop and not any genre of music?

Q. What’s your perspective on the current Hip Hop scene in Mzansi?
A. At this moment I think its comedy. I can’t even call it Hip Hop anymore, it’s more bragging and less rapping.
Q. What are you currently working on?
A. My mixtape which is dropping this December named “The final concept”.
Q. Lots of artists come and go, what makes you relevant as an artist?
A. Am not in this game to impress, please. I believe one day this will put food on my table, this is my weapon against poverty.
Q. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
A. I see myself running a successful record label, giving young upcoming artists a platform to shine. I know this game is cruel, so I want to make it easy for this upcoming super stars.
