In her interview with Cosmo SA’s Deputy Editor Noxolo Mafu, the Tsonga rap artiste speaks about her rise to fame, and her vision for the future.

Read excerpts below:

On how her career started:

“I was broke, and I realised I could write poetry and pretty much anything. I thought I could write raps as well. You know when you’re desperate?”

On creating her own sound and aesthetics:

As an artist, you can’t just do what already exists. Part of your job is to bring what’s next.

On using her local dialect Tsonga to make her music;

I want to make music my cousins are going to dance to, even if it means I’m only popular in Limpopo. It’s really cool to have created a different narrative because no-one ever stays in my village. I’m lucky that no-one believed in me at that stage because then I might have gone into a record deal too early or compromised my sound.”
