His advice to other local artists is that they should view themselves as brand beyond themselves just being artists, urging them to have a management team for them to be fully successful.
“South African artists such as Casper Nyovest are what they are because of support from their good management teams that specialise on different roles. I am also going this route to give a team the responsibility to manage everything while I focus on performance alone,” he added.
