LIVING MY DREAM
I’m in a good space to pursue music too. I’ve been dabbling with it for a while but I’m ready to have my music out there. I’m building my empire and have started my own music and media company called One Auto Media. The studios are in my parents’ house. I hope to be one of the renowned female producers in the country, like Zonke. We have very few of those.
But one battle of being a businesswoman is the admin, which I hate because I can’t do it, it’s such a problem for me. I just want to be on the creative side, and that’s the thing with a lot of people with ADHD, we don’t like paperwork. You just want to go and do things with your hands, things that are stimulating. So I’m following my dream and hope to drop one good song before I go behind the scenes so South Africa can see what I have to offer. It’s so hard to box myself in terms of the music I want to make as I have so many songs on my library, and I’m experimenting with sounds so it’ll be better to create for other artists.
I love what I do. I feel if you do something you love it’s when you find your ultimate purpose. If it’s given to you and nobody else, and you don’t do it, I feel you’re doing the world – and yourself – a big disservice.”
