What inspires your music?

I love writing about what I’m going through. I feel like that’s when my most genuine work comes out. I want to make music that inspires people to do more than just live.

Who would you give anything to sing with, and why?

Twenty One Pilots. I think they’re unique and have a great message. I’ve been following them since their first mini albums and EPs, and I really believe they’re making the world a better place with their music – which is what I strive to do.

What are you listening to in your car right now?

Julia Michaels – Uh Huh.

What’s your soul animal?

I’ve always thought it’s a lion. They’re fierce and serious, but like to play around. They’re loyal to their pride and can bite when they need to!

What can’t you leave the house without?

My glasses! If I don’t feel like wearing make-up, my real glasses just add too my look, and obviously help me see better.

Favorite spot to eat in Jozi?

Big Mouth in Sandton City. They have the BEST sushi!
