What inspired your latest project ‘Purple Matter’ and what do you want people to take from it?
I’ve come across so many broken hearted women and men, who are stuck in broken relationships but they are scared to leave because they are afraid of being lonely. So through this project I am attempting to take those people through a healing process and back to feeling good and worthy again.
All I want is for people to understand and learn that if you are not happy, you have to allow yourself to make decisions that will lead you to happiness even if it’s not easy. I’ve collaborated with a few artists including Jayhood and Slabsta and I’m really excited to put the music out there.
What goes into your process of creating music and what have you learnt from it?
A lot of dedication, time, love and experiences. You have to understand what you speaking about in your music, people should be able to relate to it. I think for your music to be relevant it has to be somewhat therapeutic. I’ve learned that if you put your mind, soul and heart into something you will definitely make it to the next level.
What do you feel the next step should be for the music and art industry in South Africa?
I think musicians should strive to make music that is relevant and more music that will pass out good messages, our youth needs it. Music is powerful and we need to spread more positive influences so we don’t all fall into despair.
What would you say to upcoming musicians to inspire them?
The music industry is hard, we’re are trying to claw our way in and most times you’ll feel like giving up. But never give up…the minute you think of giving up remember why you started.
Stay consistent, stay positive, stay humble always, stay focused, stay hungry but mostly stay relevant.
