Q: Tell us about your new joint, how did it come about, the energy in the studio and the whole creative process?
A: First of all, the camp is working mayne. We are all trying by all means. So when the joint was recorded, it was lit.... I remember Lore & Ofentic. Dee Xclsv and Tony X were recording the entire day. We went out still and met up with Red Button and I saw the guys getting there like they were ready to go on war. To cut the story short mayn, that was a long day and night but eventually Mofiso O fa came out as one of the songs that were recorded that day...

Q: Best project for you thus far?
A: Ah mayn, there is a lot hey. I enjoy more local than international.... But that Luna Florentino – Florentino Mariachi is too much....
Q: You always swagged up; do you have any local favourite fashion brand?
A: Hey mayn, S.O.S.A is the brand The Lifestyle.
Q: How do you feel about the urban culture in S.A right now?
A: I feel like every creative gets limited by the corporate world and it’s frustrating when you have so much to offer. So the street culture gives one some sense of freedom, to somehow enhance and/or express your skills or talent. So many things happen in the street, and that’s great mayn.

A: Mofiso o fa.... for now, so much is going to come out from my side. We ready mayn.
