Who or what got you into hip hop?

I started listening to hiphop in 2006 and studied it, then made my 1st song in 2013. Lil Wayne and Kanye West were my biggest influencers.

What is the good and the bad thing about being a Rapper around your hood?

I dont wanna lie, Its hard being a rapper around my hood, especially if you rap internationally, support is very low, people dont relate to English compared to Tsonga Rap. So I had to learn to rap in my language to accomodate everyone.

What is this one song that made a lot of people to know or love Marvcash?

I remember my 1st tsonga rap song called "Bodhlele", that’s when i realised that our people want something they can understand or relate to. Since then I’m versatile… oh thanks to them. But the song that made my name remarkable not only around my hood was "We Real” feat. Cena" in 2018. That song is the reason i became a producer… it almost opened doors for me but then unfortunately the beat disadvantaged me since it was downloaded.

How is the response from your family and friends towards your music journey?

I only have only 2 family members who strongly support my music career; that be my brother Chris and My wife's Sister Norma.

Marvcash… what’s the story behind this stage name?

The name Marvcash comes from Marvin and Cash money… i dropped "in” and “money" and left with Marvcash.

What is this one thing you wish to change about Hip hop in your Hood?

I wish I could change how people in my hood see local Artists, I feel like the respect only comes when you are successful or grown to the point where you get recognised by outsiders 1st before your own people. In 2021 I won the beat battle called "BEAT EM" hosted by of the Top American Producer goes by the name RyiniProd from Los Angeles. I was announced on YouTube as the 3rd place winner!.
