He has been at it for three decades and still has not given up on his music dream.

Shaun Botha (35), known by his stage name MusiSean, started his music career at the tender age of five at church in his home town of George.

Loving music but being discouraged from pursuing it as a career saw him leave it behind for a while.

Working at a seaside restaurant and dealing with many tourists he would be reminded of the idea of seaside living.

It was then when he and a friend co-wrote the track “Lekker byri C”.

He performed it at the restaurant before it was recorded and played on local radio.

But it is not all about his solo career, as he also hosted shows for local musicians, offering a platform for them to showcase their talent in George.

A few years down the line he also auditioned for SA’s got talent. His audition has been viewed thousands of times.

Music in you“I was told there is no money in music. But if it is in you, there is no way to just get rid of it,” he says.

“I had jobs, but music was always the thing I came back to.”

He recently moved to New Woodlands to help realise his dream of a music career.

“I am already well-known in George, but there is no industry there so I decided to move to Cape Town,” he says.

He has been actively pursuing his music career for a few years now and already has a new single ready to drop.

His song “Blue skies” is a metaphor about a relationship.

The song is about the person who was his muse but they were never able to be together.

“I base my songs on real experiences because I want it to be real,” he says.

The future for Botha will see the release of the song and a music video that is in process.

“I would like to host a show where people perform my music one day,” he says about the future.

He is also available for bookings for weddings and events.
