Be it in

Soul City or on stage performing one of his hits, the ­political and outspoken

­Zuluboy continues making waves wherever he goes. Having been expelled for

wearing African attire to school, the maskandi artist continues being true to

himself and ­defying the laws of conformity. Here he talks about his dream car,

loving enough and lying under the stars.

Life is … hip-hop and all

challenges that train me for the future.

My first job was

as a waiter at an upmarket restaurant.

The most romantic

thing I’ve done … was a midnight picnic in a rural area lying on the ground

watching the stars.

Right now I’m

listening to … I love my Maskandi 2 Greatest Hits but Shembe of Bambatha

does it for me.

My favourite place

to play/DJ … for people who love what they do and do what they love.

My fictional hero

is … Santa Claus because he comes every year and brings families


My favourite place

in SA is … the Drakensberg. It cleanses my mind.

I love my family

because … they are the centre of my life. I can always talk to them about

whatever I go through.

My dream car is

Phantom for its style and class.

The phrase I

overuse is … take care of what you love and what you love will take care of


Before the end of

the day I have to … meditate and pray for tomorrow ­because it is not


I was so

embarrassed when I … was invited to take part in a video shoot. Without

warning, the cameras stopped rolling and I was removed from the stage while

everbody watched.

Living the African

dream for me would be … when Africa has the same financial power and

knowledge as the rest of the world.

If I could change

one thing about myself it would be … I have so much love and a helpful

heart. If I could, I would love and help just enough.

When I think of

2010 I think of … nothing but a soccer tournament coming to Africa.

The best day of the

week is … Monday. It is a day when I plan for the week ahead and because my

peeps are tired we all get a break.

I knew my career

and I were meant to be when … I looked at my photo album and saw pictures of

myself performing when I was very young.

My favourite room

in the house is … the bedroom because I can get to think, rest and


My favourite

childhood memory is … chilling with my friends and walking up the stream

near Gobogobo River.

My favourite old

school track is … Mbombela by Bayethe. It is a classic.

My next project is

IGODA that I’m working on as we speak and a coffee shop in Jozi
