Ntsika claims he gets his songs from his ancestors, according to ZAlebs. The singer says he turns his dreams into songs.

He says he dreams of his ancestors - like his grandfather - and gets songs from them that way. He then works on the songs and gives them life when he wakes up.

According to Ntsika, it is a spiritual matter to him. He says it is a most divine gift handed to him. He has created wonderful musical hits for singers like Vusi Nova and Musa Sukwene.

Ntsika describes it as almost the same kind of calling that traditional healers have, but with music.

I literally dream about songs. In those dreams, for all the years that I've been receiving songs, I would see who they were meant for, like the artist the song is meant for.
Well, the first dream I had, I was only six years old, back in Meadowland when I was still living with my gran. It felt so natural, even at that time. When something is yours, like when something is your calling then it is yours.

Ntsika added that music is his calling. He says if God exists in many forms, he knows him as music.
