It is indeed a great feeling. It shows that I am chosen among the millions to represent Limpopo and I am forever grateful of it.
You've been appearing on quite a lot of TV programmes, Would You say this one maybe your greatest breakthrough or it is a normal activity that you always do?
For me, it shows that the future is too bright. It's a sign that this is what I was born to do. Maybe one day it will feel like a normal activity but my latest feature gave me goosebumps when I saw myself. It's good to do something that feels like a challenge because it helps you grow and give yourself a room for improvement.
Acting and Rapping... How are you handling or balancing the two?
For now it is easy to balance them because I just got supporting roles. Rapping is what I do everyday but it's obvious that you cannot perform everyday, so even the day I get a leading role, I will be able to balance both. When I write stories through lyrics on my songs I also feel like I'm boosting my acting career because I take every song as a story.

I got more than 50 calls, more than 100 what's app messages and more than 30 tags and mentions on Facebook and Twitter. All those responses were coming from various parts of South Africa. It's amazing.
Is the Response different on Your Music Career from Your Acting Career?
The only difference is my music has not got so much exposure on a national platform. However, in terms of response, there are songs that I release and they get so much attention to extend that I also feel like the only aspect that is lacking is PR
