Zareef Minty's weekly Q&A with Stoan Seate

2016-03-18 08:01

Who is Stoan Seate?

Stoan is the only son/child from my mother's womb, who's developed into a husband and a father. I'm a multitalented lover of all things creative.

You are extremely influential and someone that is a role model to many, how do you handle that responsibility?

I don't try to be influential, I think people are attracted to my honesty and humility, so they are therefore keen to hear my opinion/perspective on certain matters. I'm not perfect, but I think perfection is imperfect (haha! Or the other way round).

What is your five year goal?

I want to be completely dept free, all my kids' fees paid up and having my Ikgate Motlhala cycle challenge as an international event.

What advice do you have for the youth?

Before you look abroad for inspiration, take a closer look at your own surroundings and heritage. We have one the most diverse and innovative countries in the world and one will be shocked to discover some of its hidden treasures.

Do you support #FeesMustFall and #AccessMustRise?

Two of my daughters are off to tertiary in about 3 years and I am constantly agonizing about how I am going to afford tuition for them, so for me, there is no other option but to support the #FeesMustFall and AccessMustRise. I also think that if we say that the young are the future, we directly impact that future positively or negatively by how we deal with today.

What is your ultimate goal?

My ultimate goal is to get to the end of my life satisfied and with minimum regrets.

What is next for Stoan Seate?

After IkgateMotlhala I am taking it back to the art by Putting together my first art exhibition (I'm a trained fine artist) and last full studio album (will only do singles and features after) both under 4020Phenomenon.

Congratulations on being nominated for the SAFTA’s, I am sure our readers will want to vote for you. Please tell our readers how can they go about doing that?

It is pretty simple to vote. Please vote as many times as possible by sending sms "1" to 33101. Others deserve it but I think my team And I deserve it the most!

What is your advice for your future grandson? In just 8 sentences….

Life is a journey, not a race. Strength is not aggression. Respect every person you meet and their actions will determine wether they are deserving of more or less. You have one life to live, if you live it well then ONE life is enough. Take regular time out to replenish your spirit. If you ALWAYS give thanks (To God) and show gratitude (to the world) for what you get, then you will get more things to give thanks for and be grateful for. Pula!!
