I was born in Phiri, Soweto. A 3rd child among 6 siblings. Both parents hailed from Lesotho, the father having worked in the mines and railways among other occupations in his life. Both parents loved music and arts in a way. We never had a radio at home. Fortunately the era was vibrant and happy. In the 1960's live music was common in the townships. My mother loved singing. I knew before I was 10 years that I need to be an artist. I only learned after my father was buried that he had a guitar.

Who is your greatest inspiration, musically?

Both my parents. Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Harry Belafonte

What is the one thing people would be surprised to know about yourself/the group?

What would you say is the hardest thing about this career?

What is the best advice you have ever received?

Do not overlook the importance of learning music theory and the skill to write my own songs on score
