Kwesta had to make many sacrifices along the way before he made his dreams of becoming a successful rapper come true. One of the sacrifices was dropping out of school. Now the musician could be focusing on more academic dreams like getting a good education.
Kwesta dropped out of school and ran away from home at 16 but now wants to finish school. Although it's not an immediate focus of his, he does want to have academic grounds to stand on the day he doesn't make music anymore.
The rapper said that he didn't leave school because he is lazy or dumb. He just couldn't sit in class, knowing he was wasting time that he could be spending on chasing his passion.
His decision created problems between him and his mother, who had academic dreams for him.
TimesLIVE reports that Kwesta and his mom gets along better now that he is older.
Kwesta said he won't be rapping forever and having an education would come in handy the day he puts down the mic.
I mean I could rap at 60 but I just don’t see myself as a rapping 60-year-old. I don’t wanna be a Snoop Dog. I wanna retire somewhere and just chill and an education will come in handy.
For now, though, we can still expect to hear hits like Vur Vai from one of our favourite South African rappers.
