Where was your favourite holiday or time spent abroad?

My best trip was to London to record with producer Pete “Boxsta” Martin; I was exposed to such talents and professionalism abroad. I also enjoyed the architecture and the atmosphere.

Your worst experience on a holiday?

I haven’t had one yet. London was just an amazing experience.

Your funniest experience?

I was sightseeing and basically not paying attention. I got stuck and hit by the Tube doors in London. It was quite embarrassing.

Fish and chips at a pub in London.

Your favourite place for a sundowner?

The Grand Café in Cape Town.

Adrenalin junkie. I love challenges and adventure.

The drive to Plettenburg Bay; it’s a long, refreshing drive along the coast. It’s so beautiful.

A trip to India or New York.

Can you share some travelling tips?

Always make sure your bag is locked and secure no matter where you’re off to.

What do you always take with you on your travels?

I always take my iPod; it passes the time and blocks out any noise around you in the plane.

Where next?

Hopefully, London again and Europe, exposing my music to the international market. - Weekend Argus
