CordovoGH: At what point of your life did you decide to do music and why?
Afrikaan: Music had always been a part of me while growing up so at age 15 precisely, I decided to begin doing music because I loved the feeling I got when listening to any music, I loved the style of musicians and what they do, I admired legends like Bob Marley, Lucky Dube, Kevin Little and Daddy Lumba all of which played a vital role in my continual love for music and I aim to become like one of them someday, I believe with my music and sound I can connect people from different parts of the world to listen to my voice and message.
CordovoGH: What inspired the tracks “Sexy” & “Body”?
Afrikaan: Whenever I spot an African woman, all I see is sexiness, natural beauty and natural body shape and I appreciate these endowments of the African woman, that’s what made me write these two tracks.
CordovoGH: Tell us what we should expect from Afrikaan, after dropping these debut singles?
Afrikaan: I want my fans and everyone out there to prepare for Afrikaan’s great works, the very best of all my songs to come so all I need is their continual support.
