My music journey startated when I was 7 years old when I was hand picked to lead a song in a clap and tap choir and everyone was amazed by my ability to sing.

We hear you are currently preparing for a new album/DVD, The story of God’s grace tell us more?
I am recording my second live DVD on the 5th of May at New Life Church in Brynston. The show featurs Mabongi; Sgwili and Siyakha. Also, same day we will be honouring Dr Rebecca Malope for paving a way for us in the industry. Tickets already availableat Computicket.
Lately we see music consumers complaining about SA Gospel Artists not writing new songs, What is your take on this?
My take is that we artists must not be dictated to by whats currently working for other people or the norm but allow ourself to be creative and write songs. Another thing, if you dont read the gospels (Bible) you wont be able to write gospel songs
How does one prepare for a live DVD recording?
Intense rehersals, prayer and hard work.
