Regarding his education, De Mthuda dropped out of school at grade 11. Growing up, he was more into art than education. His parents always advised him to make education his top priority. In an interview with Mail & Guardian, he revealed,
My family allowed me some time to make music, but they ensured school was my top priority.
But when I started making good songs, and money, I lost interest and dropped out in grade 11. I was never really into school: I used to be into drawing, and then I became a dancer, which eventually led me into music.

I also opened my new record label called Ace Of Spades and have signed a couple of artists like Da Muziqal Chef. I love that I am in my own lane, and that's important for me; I am not trying to be number one, but I want to be the best; my only competition is me.
