with musician Kessia
March 09, 2010
yourself in five words?
Energetic, smart, talented, innovative and talkative.
the best piece of advice you've ever received?
If you have a talent or gift you must pursue it. No matter
what anyone says you have to pursue your dreams.
the most ridiculous thing you've ever done?
Jumping on stage and dancing while other artists are performing
- just having the drive to be on the stage.
is your most treasured possession?
My voice is my most treasured possession.
do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
When some one has been done wrong, I feel for them.
have any strange hobbies?
I don't have strange hobbies. I like dancing but
I cannot say that's a hobby as such.
do you dislike most about your appearance?
is your greatest extravagance?
State of the art music equipment. That is what I would like to have.
have you got in your fridge?
Electricity is always off so I don't have most things
in my fridge. I think I have water and green beans. If I buy a lot
of things they will go bad.
is your greatest fear?
have you got in your pockets right now?
Just a small amount of money, my ID and some songs that
I am writing.
is your favourite journey?
are your heroes in real life?
At the moment I can say Thokozane Khupe is really something
because she has broken all odds after a long struggle to get where
she is; to be the deputy prime minister. She has stood up for us
women. She was talking at the women's day performances and
she made me feel proud to be a woman.
and where were you happiest?
When I graduated from university studying applied environmental
science. When I finished my degree I was so happy because it was
such an achievement for me after studying for four years.
your biggest vice?
Anger. Sometimes if some one does something to me I react
very badly. I hit them sometimes. Especially if it's a man
it's even worse.
were you like at school?
I was a bit adventurous. I was a mouthpiece for the girls
that could not speak for themselves.
are you doing next?
I need to record an album. That's what I am working
on. I have been in the industry for a long time, about 10 years,
even 11 and it's high time I record something so that the
whole world can know that Kessia is here. Only those who come to
live performances are the ones who know who I am. So right now I
need to record something even if I know I won't get any money
from it. At least I will be known by more people.
