Rapper Siphesihle ‘Da Main’ Ngomane contends that age should not be a barrier to talent.

“When you have talent for something, it is always better to act on it at a young age, though.”

Ngomane, who stays in Sunningdale said she started rapping only last year, but she has written and released her first song in February this year.

“It has been my dream to become a singer and I love rap music,” she added.

Ngomane,16, said she is now under the Cosher Studios stable.

“I prefer to do things my way, which is the reason I believe in my talent,” she revealed.

Ngomane also said her music was not disturbing her studies.

She said her first track is called “Whats my name” and her second “Da main”, which are both available on Sound Cloud.

“I am very proud of myself and my aim is to continue making tracks that most people will enjoy listening to,” she said.

She said she will forever be grateful to her parents for all their support in her budding career.

“All I need is a chance for people to listen to my tracks and I assure them that they will love my music.”

Her mother, Norma Raji, said she could not belive it was her daughter, when she first heard her sing on CD.

“I felt like crying when I heard my baby girl rapping inside the studio and I know God will guide her,” said Raji.

She went on to say she always had an inkling that her daughter would make it, “since she loved music,”.

“She always hummed while washing the dishes.”

Raji said her daughter was a loud child growing up, “Who was always singing and I knew that I gave birth to a star,”

Her father TJ doubles up as her manager.

He said they were very proud of their daughter’s musical prowess.

“We are very proud and will continue supporting her.”

“I know she will go places because she loves music and we will support her all the way,” added the proud father.

Siphesihle said her favourite rap artist is Nasty C.
