Kabza De Small and Dj Maphorisa talk about their struggles to break into the music industry.
Kabelo Motha, also known as Kabza De Small, and Themba Sonnyboy Sekowe, popularly known as Dj Maphorisa, both industry peers and friends, took the time to interview. They talked about their struggles before becoming successful in the music industry in the interview. Both males had humble beginnings and, based on their conversation, have been hustling for quite some time. From only a fragment of this interview, it's clear that they both have a strong work ethic that is deeply ingrained in them.
Kabza De Small the King of Amapiano, as he is known, used to work as a grass cutter for the town. He also found work as a plumber, repairing clogged drains. He was 17 years old when he started working, and yes, he did wear a municipal worker overall outfit.
Finding a job as a 17-year-old was difficult, especially when most of his peers were having a good time and enjoying their youth. Kabza stayed the course and finished the job.
Maphorisa started his first business in school selling sweets. He sold five types of sweets and would make around R150 per day. After high school, he sold kotas. A Kota is a quarter of bread with achaar, fried chips, cheese and various cold meats like polony, Russian, Vienna and more.
He had regular business obstacles while running his Kota company. During certain lunchtime, his business decreased since the other students opted to eat from the tuck shop. He became addicted to dice games at some point in his life, but he was able to quit and focus on his business.
Both musicians come from modest beginnings. They both went to township schools and fought their way to the top. They made life easier for their loved ones after they made it. They haven't forgotten where they came from, for one thing.
