During the lockdown period, one way to cheer yourself up is to listen to some great hip-hop music. What better choice than listening to local rap sensation, Kwesta. Let’s discover more about Kwesta’s personal life and his songs in 2020.
Kwesta is not just some hip-hop artist trying to make a break for himself - he has produced diamond albums. To get more of an idea on who Kwesta is, a team from JOOX interviewed him and obtained some information that would please his fans. He comes across as friendly with a humble attitude and gives excellent answers when questioned.
After learning from an agency that makes selections, he began thinking along similar international lines. This mainly occurred to him after he made a song called ‘Spirit’, which featured American rapper, Wale. Kwesta is quite fussy when it comes to collaboration, and to this day, he is grateful for the right choices he has made. Kwesta notes that it is vital that the collaborator has to be on the same wavelength as he is.
Rich Home Quan joined Kwesta when making the song ‘Run it up.’ He was most impressed with Kwesta’s music which he had never heard before. Initially, there were some challenges to overcome such as language and culture, but Kwesta sees that as an adventure, that eventually ends with both artists being on the same page.
How does Kwesta manage that? He focuses on the music and tries to work out where it is taking him. He avoids micromanagement. Collaborating with another hip-hop artist has the advantage that Kwesta also gains exposure to their fans. But, the bottom line is that the music has to be right.
Kwesta has a big dream to share his music with the entire world, including the rest of Africa. He is most keen to join up with anyone for the sake of great music.
The sky is the limit for Kwesta, as he wants to cross many boundaries of hip-hop music with more collaborations. He also wants to complete ‘Dakar 3,’ which he considers would be his greatest achievement. He says he is no longer the same person since he made ‘Dakar 2.’
Kwesta endeavours to embody his successes and crises into his songwriting and music. This was exemplified by his song called ‘Khethile Khethile.’ In this way, he and his life become the music. His music is like a story that he wants to convey to the whole world, about how he grew up in a township in South Africa. He expects to keep on growing in his career.
Kwesta and his music are continuing to impact this country and the rest of the world, with many fans following him. PMD’s car insurance may also be music to your ears. You could enjoy affordable car insurance with fixed premiums* and a reduce to zero excess*.
