How do you introduce yourself?
Khanyisa aka Mr underscore Ketse the Digital Rapper
Tell us about your music journey…
I started rapping stupid rhymes as a kid, I was probably like 8 or 9. In high school I started performing in talent shows to instrumentals from Grade 8 to 12. I stopped for a while when I went to study architecture but recently jumped back into it when one of my work friends challenged me to a rap battle as a joke. Now I record my music and the rest is history.
Tell us about your permanent gig as a Social Media Manager?
Well the social media gig came as a shock to me since I didn’t study anything that has to do with it. It was just pure talent and hard work. At my previous job I ran their social media to enhance my skills and did a couple of courses before applying for the job I’m in now. So basically my day to day is loading stuff on the website, attending production meetings and being on set for the live show to do my social media thing.
What wakes up every morning besides your alarm?
The love of my life, Sandy, this girl is the most amazing part of my life and everything I do daily is to build a future with her. She literally wakes me up in the morning, I don’t have an alarm so every day at 8 o’clock I get a kick from her and I know it’s time to get up and go.
What’s your winning formula?
Persistence, consistency and hard work, but most importantly it’s to believe in yourself. Without those qualities I wouldn’t be where I am today, honestly.
What’s next for you?
Well I’m trying to push this music thing as hard as I can while making a name for myself behind the scenes in television. My girlfriend and I are working on a project together for January 2019 so that’s also something to look out for.
What’s your routine to stay looking fresh?
Well I always trim and shave and I use mostly Nivea products for my face and body. I wash with the Nivea Deep Face Wash and air dry my face before using Nivea Crème to moisturize my face. It works. Trust me.
What’s your number ONE grooming product?
Nivea Deep Face Wash sure case
Is there such thing as a perfect guy?
We’re all perfect in our imperfections and our own way. Nobody is perfect because we are all different and have our flaws.
If we had to put you in BOX – what would you remain as besides an artist?
Grand, grand, what do you think is Manbox?
Manbox helps me find the best products that suits my needs, so that’s a grooming angel in disguise.
