Inside/Out with musician Misfit
March 31, 2010

Describe yourself in five words?
Self conscious, humble, simple, easy going and hardworking.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
I was told by my dad when I was young that no dream is too good to come true. I was encouraged to go for what ever I want to go for in life.

What's the most ridiculous thing you've ever done?
I locked myself in a room and I smoked and drank. I was alone and I started writing poetry.

What is your most treasured possession?
My spirituality.

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Being lonely and not having friends or people to hang around with.

Do you have any strange hobbies?
I love playing soccer. I am a very good soccer player. I think that is the strangest hobby I have.

What do you dislike most about your appearance?
My feet - they are unbelievable ugly.

What is your greatest extravagance?
To have a cool home studio in my house.

What have you got in your fridge?
Fruit juice and all kinds of fruits.

What is your greatest fear?
To die before I achieve all the goals I have set for myself.

What have you got in your pockets right now?
A few dollars and my cell phone.

What is your favourite journey?
When I go for meditation; when I go for the yoga meditation.

Who are your heroes in real life?
Oprah. I look up to Oprah very much. She had humble beginnings - she started out poor and she grew up struggling. Her father abused her but besides all that she managed to work towards her dreams and she is changing lives; she is touching people in a positive way. I really look up to her.

When 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.

What's your biggest vice?
Attachment. I easily get attached to things, to people.

What were you like at school?
In high school I used to be an intelligent kid and confident but I was small bodied. I was skinny so I was looked down upon. I was more of a laughing stock. I was confident and smart but I was taken for granted probably because of my small body.

What are you doing next?
There is so much that I want to do. On the professional side I am an environmentalist. I really want to work with different communities to bring awareness of the environment and educate people on that. Music wise I want to do a recording - a beautiful classic hip-hop album that will be the best that people have ever heard. I also want to get married and have a family of my own.
