- Kwesta is one of the most successful rappers in South Africa- but, despite all the fame and fortune he is praised for being extremely humble
- He recently opened up about his modesty, adding it was just because he knew who he was
- The rapper added he never went into music for fame, it is just something part of the package
He has been on the South African music scene for over a decade and during that time Kwesta became one of the most prominent musicians in the country.
His third album made history by breaking the record of most copies sold in SA, Briefly.co.za reported previously.
Yet, despite all the success, Kwesta does not live a flashy lifestyle and he has been praised for his modesty.
During a recent interview with TshisaLIVE, Kwesta opened up about being humble.
"I don't think I'm especially humble. I just think I know who I am. Kwesta is not Senzo. I’ve tried merge the two because I never want to get to a point where I need to pretend to be someone else," he said.
The muso added Kwesta was part of Senzo not the other way around. The rapper added his mother also has a lot to do with his lack of vanity.
“I think my mom would still give me a big whoop a** if I ever got a big head,” Kwesta was quoted jokingly saying.
Fame is not something that would go to Kwesta's head, especially since it was not something that motivated him to do music in the first place.
The 30-year-old said he sometimes needed to 'remind' himself that he is famous and that fame is not something he pursued- he rather saw it as just part of the package.
"I've never been about fame it just so happened that it's a part of the package. I am often reminded that I need to switch back to Kwesta because I m not that great with people but Kwesta has to be," he added.
