What do you value most?

I value the freedom of being able to go after whatever is in my heart and the right to be treated equally no matter what I’m doing or where I’m doing it. I value having my thoughts, talents and contributions being weighed on the same scale as everyone else’s.

What do you find inspirational?

The Underdog. The guy or gal they never gave a chance but ends up kicking all their a**es.

What are your long term goals and dreams?

To be a mega persona in the South African and world entertainment stage. To have my own platforms where upcoming and promising talents can showcase themselves. To be a culture within the popular culture of the day.

What would you do with your life if you had no restrictions?

Have my own free to air radio station. My own line of high-end products (spirits). Travel the world round atleast 4 times…a Year. Make a meaningful contribution to the communities that I come from and that have embraced me.

How would you like to be remembered?

As that guy who went for it, went for it all and got it!
