SA rapper iFani reveals reasons for taking a break off the music industry for over 2 years.

Speaking with TshishaLIVE, the hip-hop artist said he’s is back to the industry and will be focusing on music. He also said that he’s on a mission to infuse hip-hop with traditional influences.

Here are some of the words gotten from the rapper by TshishaLIVE:

“I’ve been at home, in Nelson Mandela Bay. I haven’t been on these entertainment streets. I haven’t been doing TV things or music things. But I have been making music here and there – although I’ll admit that most of the time I was just doing nothing, being a beach bum,” he said.

“I left because I honestly felt like I needed some time to myself, not in a clichéd way, but in a way that came from me thinking … I have been hard at work and for a long time, when am I ever gonna rest?

“But I never stopped making music. I just stopped doing the other parts, like doing interviews and just being in this [entertainment industry] space,” he said.

“I’m here now because of this project that I am working on. It is worth me leaving my safe space … It is worth it academically for the young ones and necessary for the hip-hop movement eMzansi,” he said.

“Not only will there be educational value to this music, but it will also go a long way to letting young people know that the music they listen to can be a reflection of who they are, in totality – that they can combine their traditions and culture into their favourite music genre, wear their traditional gear and make it work, own it.”
