‘I Rap For The People’: K2 Shares His Musical Journey

K2 leaves no stone unturned when he shared with us his passion for music. Cava.



K2 exclusive interview

Mzansi’s entertainment industry was forever changed when Katlego ‘K2’ Mabusela decided to enter Big Brother Mzansi Double Trouble competition. His charm, looks and talent won the hearts of numerous South Africans who became stans at a blink of an eye. K2 confesses that he was bit by the rap bug (it exists) at a tender age and has honed his skill ever since. Cava why you should bet on this lepara to succeed.

QuenchSA: Has the adoration you’ve received from fans and its sheer number come as a surprise to you?

K2: Absolutely. I say that because of the type of love we get. I feel like they appreciate what we went through, going to big brother, trying to get into the platform, trying to get the exposure. Although the fan base is bigger than I expected who am I to complain.

QuenchSA: How do you deal with the sudden level of scrutiny in your life?

K2: Honestly, I went to go do this reality show; I had expected my life to change so I would say it’s something that was expected. For me it’s life, it doesn’t really worry me. What worries me is my private life is private. What goes on between me and Blue is between me and Blue. If the media wants to make up stuff its fine, as long as I know the truth nothing can hurt me.

QuenchSA: Was there ever a time in the BB House where it got personal with anyone?

K2: A reality show like Big Brother is unlike any other, mentally you had to be prepared for that, it was a test of character. Whether you could handle the pressure. For me maturity-wise it brought a lot of growth as well. Its a challenge but you gain normality in it.

QuenchSA: Do you agree that your relationship with Blue might be the most influential relationship amongst the youth?

K2: That’s a very touchy one, I don’t know, I’ve never said I was an influence but I feel like it’s too early to say.

QuenchSA: Please tell us about your music journey. Was it always your passion?
Rapping is actually my favourite thing to do, it’s my comfort zone, when I’m writing I’m in my Chi. The first time I wrote a rap I was 14 years old and I never looked back. I’m blessed to be doing what I love to do, being recognized for it and making a living out of it.

QuenchSA: Did the reception of your first single Lepara come as a surprise?

K2: I’ve always had the total confidence in my ability to rap. When I rap, I rap for people. As for Lepara, I told people they should expect a single and I was hoping, it wasn’t something i wrote before the show, i wrote it after the show. I told people they should expect a single and I delivered so for me its a good feeling.

QuenchSA: When can we expect the next single?

K2: I like to surprise people, I don’t want to give things away, I’m working hard. Right now I’m still pushing Lepara, its doing quite well, getting airplay and still doing some gigs. But you can expect a couple of single before the year ends maybe even a remix to Lepara.

QuenchSA: And the album?

K2: I’m working on the album; I don’t have a release date yet.

QuenchSA: What else is K2 working on?

K2: Actually, there was a poll of who KidX should collaborate with and people voted for me and now we currently in talks. It’s the outcome of the work you put in. Hard work pays off, I’m working. It’s still early days though.

Anele Faces Backlash Over Kelly Rowland Diss

And she’s not backing down. “I said what I said.”

Anele has been trending for three days straight.

The bulk of it is harsh criticism and straight drags over her comments about Kelly Rowland’s looks, which she volunteered on Twitter this past Saturday.

Replying to a tweet by Sizwe Dhlomo about Kelly possibly being the best looking member of Destiny’s Child, Anele opined that Kelly look as good without make up.

“Kelly looks amazing with make up. Take that make up off then it’s tickets (sic)”, she tweeted. “I have receipts.”

Those receipts turned out to be a collage photo of Rowland with and without make up.

The radio presenter’s comments have tossed her to the throes of much backlash.

But she won’t apologise. “I said what I said and ain’t changing.

DJ Fresh Denies Sexual Assault Claims

He’s taking legal action.



DJ Fresh has denied various sexual assault claims that surfaced recently on social media.

Real name Thato Sikwane, the 46 year old radio presenter became a subject of much furore following his appearance in the list of alleged perpetrators being implicated by the #AmINext Twitter movement, which seeks to expose and shame alleged perpetrators of gender based violence against women.

And while these social media accounts have named several South African male celebrities, Dj Fresh has distanced himself.

“The current allegations are false and without basis”, he expressed in a statement shared through his social media platforms. Adding; “They have been made and published, recklessly”.

“The fight against Gender Based Violence is one of the biggest battles in our countermand it saddens me that the focus is being shifted from the real issues and perpetrators”, he said.


DJ Fresh went also revealed that he is seeking legal counsel following the damning allegations made by a well known ex girlfriend, who is believed by some to have directed her Twitter posts about her an abusive “famous ex” to the popular broadcaster.

The 947 presenter shot down the claims, dismissing them as being “without merit”.

“I have, in the past, chosen to ignore this person, but due to the implications of the most recent statements,  the matter has been referred to my attorneys to handle.

Burna Boy Vows To Never Come To South Africa

Burna Boy is livid!



Photo Credit: Burna Boy via Instagram

Not only did Burna Boy pull out from of his highly anticipated performance at this year’s Afropunk, but he also has no intention of ever setting foot in South Africa. Ever.

The African Giant on Tuesday ended his silence on the ongoing xenophobic violence in the country, lambasting the South Africa government for its failure to deal effectively with the spate of violence against foreign nationals and their property.

In a series of tweets that also slammed his former collaborator AKA over his remarks, the singer detailed his enduring strife with the country.

“I have not set foot in SA since 2017”, he revealed, “And I will NOT EVER go to South Africa again for any reason until the SOUTH AFRICAN government wakes the fuck up and really performs A miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this.” (Sic)

Burna Boy, who’s had decent commercial success in the country, also went on to mention his own personal experience with xenophobia.

Burna Boy echoes the sentiments by celebrities, both from South Africa and Nigeria, who have spoken out against xenophobic violence in South Africa. The likes of Wizkid, Davido, Jidenna and others have spoken out against the attacks.
