What artistic quality do you love the most in yourself? I am versatile. I can draw and dance.
If you could have an EPIC collab with a music star living or passed on, who would it be and why? The late and great Busi Mhlongo and Miriam Makeba. They played a huge role in music and they let us know, as young artists, to not fear anything when it comes to what we love: music. They paved the way for us to do better and to be more musically creative.
Which former Idols contestant inspires you the most? Amanda Black and Shekhinah. They never won Idols but they never quit music and they are recognized in the music industry. They’ve also won awards.
What’s your motto? They’ll realise later! Also, time wasted never returns.
What inspires you? Hustlers inspire me. People who don’t give up on their plans. People who wake up every morning and think positively about everything.
