Focalistic is currently one of the hottest artists in Mzansi as the country moves towards the festive season. The rapper is doing very well for himself, especially as an independent artist. His song Ke Star has recently been certified gold and has over 250 000 views on YouTube.

A fan, who didn't know that Focalistic was not signed to a major, realised that he was independent when AKA shared the recent Radio Monitor's chart. Ke Star is charting at number 31 on the chart. Pitori Maradona told the fan:
"Fully independent. I own my masters vele, just never make noise about it. For me it’s about my freedom, wang’vrostana. 18 Area Music."
Another fan then asked Focalistic if he knows any artists who make noise about owning their masters. The artist replied:
"This is not a shot at anyone fam. I’m saying I’ve been seeing people comment about my masters and I have never replied. I just prefer freedom wang’vrostana."
The music masters topic recently trended on social media when Kanye West wrote a series of tweets about owning masters.
According to popsugar.com, a master is the jargon used to refer to the underlying rights to a song. Literally, the "master recording" is the original version from which everything else stems. This also means that the holder of the master has control over the financial gains from the recordings as well.
