Inside/Out with Blessed Zikali aka 8L, a music addict with a sense of humour
September 25, 2013

Describe yourself in five words?
Laid back, attentive, amusing, conscious and sharing.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Always take charge of your own business/agenda if you want it to succeed.

What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever done?
Wow you do not wanna hear this one! I once tried to put the car in reverse gear while it was speeding forward. I was just curious. I wanted to know what happens when you do that. Fortunately it didn’t end a disaster.

What is your most treasured possession?
My sense of humour. It keeps me going in all the bad and good times.

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
When you lose your sense of humour! I mean, come on, when everything stops amusing you, life ain’t worth it.

Do you have any strange hobbies?
I would like to collect shoes one day.

What do you dislike most about your appearance?
I think I am losing my hair! Maybe a sign I am getting richer each day. Lol!

What is your greatest extravagance?
Shoes. . . I don’t have a pair worth less than $120.

What have you got in your fridge?
Boiled water. I’m health conscious!

What is your greatest fear?
Leaving the world when my child is still young. I do not think anyone can love and care for my child other than myself.

What have you got in your pockets right now?
I got $4. Hey, I’m not broke! Lol

What is your favourite journey?
Going home from work to see her.

Who are your heroes in real life?
My mother, she managed to bring up a naughty boy like me to what I am today. Now that’s my hero!

When and where were you happiest?
When my child was born in 2007, and when I bought my first German car, in 2008.

What’s your biggest vice?
Music. I’m an addict.

What were you like at school?
Naughty and nice … something like Tom and Jerry.

What are you doing next?
Realising a couple of albums, and probably I should start on a PhD.
