About 8 years ago I hit the stage for the first time alongside Ready D and the Beat Bangers and I’ve been keeping the stage lit ever since.

Personal experience and touching music compositions

6.       Apart from music, any other talents you have?

I’m an entrepreneur and Venture Catalyst by nature I have my fingers in many pots and dabble in many things hence the name Miss Celaneous ,business is one of my great passions.

7.       What is something that people would find surprising about you?

Do it for the right reasons and enjoy it, don’t succumb to the pressures of the industry, educate yourself about the business side and stay true to your values.

 

Some fun-filled questions:

1.       If music were an alcohol beverage, which would you be?

A glass of white wine 14%alcohol at least. My favourite! It gets you there nicely

2.       Vinyl or CD’s?

Vinyl I’m an 80s baby. CDs skip after you play them too many times that’s annoying.

3.       Coffee or tea?

Filter Coffee with hot milk and 3 sugars please. But then again nothing beats a nice vintage pot of tea in those beautiful vintage cups.

4.       If you could do, a collaboration with any other musician dead or alive, local or international, who would it be?

Kiki Rowe Canadian Singer, Coldplay, DaLes.

5.       New York or Paris?

I’ve been to Paris it’s beautiful, but I found the people inaccessible, those grimy non-stop New York streets is just so inspiring. Gimme the big Apple any day!

What’s next for Miss Celaneous?

I’m recording a few collaborations this month and releasing 3 New tracks, 1 with YoungstaCPT which I’m especially excited about I’m mostly busy coordinating activations for companies like Prasa, Cell C, Vodacom and EyeCV through my company.
