“Without a doubt there is hope for the youth of SA. I am inspired every day with the numerous young people I come across,” says the graduate with two degrees, in Law and Business Administration. He believes in following your dreams and education.

Wedding Anthem caught up with this young legend. Read for yourself…

 

In your opinion, what is love? Does true love exist? 

Yes true love exists.  It’s not always easy to find and you make mistakes.

 

Your music is loved. Please tell us what you have been up to and how/where our readers can get hold of you! 

I am in the process of recording my new album which I hope will be finished by the end of 2012.  I have also written a book called “Take It From Me” which is part of The Youngsters Series and available at CNA, Exclusive and ON Kindle.  I give insight into my journey in the entertainment industry and the rejection and challenges I faced trying to succeed. It also applies to life in general.  Follow me on Twitter by clicking here.

 

What projects are you currently working on?

We also just released the new SHOUT song called You’re The Voice.  Please SMS the word VOICE to 49300 for R20,00 (ZAR) to download the song. There will also be some exciting news at the end of the month regarding the Idols competition and aspiring musicians, so watch the media for information I will be announcing.  

 

What is your message to the youth?

Follow your dreams but get educated.

 

What is your secret for success and life?

I don’t feel I have a secret set of rules.  I do have a motto for myself which is “don’t let criticism go to your heart or praise go to your head”.  Don’t let people dissuade you from your goals.

 

Do you have any message for Wedding Anthem? 

It’s a great site to visit.

 

Mention anything else you would love mentioned…

I have created a wedding and function band called Toy Soldiers.  Please visit our website for a video clip and contact details for bookings.  We describe the band as a DJ on steroids.

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a
developer to create your theme? Exceptional work!

Having read this I thought it was very informative.
I appreciate you spending some time and effort to
put this short article together. I once again find myself
personally spending way too much time both reading and leaving comments.
But so what, it was still worth it!

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
I do think that you should publish more about this topic, it may not
be a taboo matter but usually folks don't talk about such subjects.
To the next! Many thanks!!
