Sowetan Live’s Sunday World featured an article on this rising star from Vryburg in the North West. In this article, he speaks about the fact that he has been rapping since he was four-years-old.
The dedicated youngster first performed in 2011 at a cultural evening in his hometown.
Tsotso’s mum is the epitome of a proud mama and comments that she isn’t surprised by his talent in the music world. She said she had him prematurely, when she was only seven-months pregnant and that her doctor told her, all premature babies are special.
She added that she does encourage him to focus on his books, over and above his music – “because education is important”.
This rising star says his main inspiration came from his older brother. Tshepang Lebona. He added that he is
“inspired by the likes of Khuli Chana, Cassper and AKA. I like hip-hop because I can express myself without any limitation."
The sky is the limit for this little star and today he performs in Vryburg at the Huhudi Food, Arts and Craft Festival at Bloom Tech Lodge with the likes of DJ Nation, Afrisoul, Fruitystar and GP Massive.
