- Lucky Matome works as a policeman during the day
- When he's off duty, he's a rising Kwaito star known as Scylash
- He wants people to know that they can pursue their passions while keeping their day jobs
37-year-old Lucky Matome is a no-nonsense cop by day. By night, he transforms into Scylash — a rising Kwaito musician.
In fact, Scylash is so good that he has won nomination in the best new Kwaito artist category at the Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards for his hit Let It Drop.
As a police spokesperson, Lucky is stationed in Kagiso, Gauteng. He began his career in 2001 and has racked up seven awards, TimesLIVE reports.
He began his music career with the group Jalumsi, which dropped its first album Nambad in the year 2000.
Scylash took a hiatus from music to complete his studies, Briefly.co.za learned. He picked up where he left off upon meeting producer Ivo Dos Ramos three years ago.
The budding musician then founded Scylash Entertainment and signed the group Masoja. Together, they made the hit Makaper.
The sky is the limit for Scylash, who wants people to know that they can pursue their passions while keeping their careers:
I also want to show people it's possible to do the things you want to do in life. You can be a professional musician and do your day job.
