But don’t expect Ntsiki to just feature on tracks left‚ right and centre.>https://twitter.com/ntsikimazwai/status/815787209533968384?ref–src=twsrc%5Etfw
You see‚ she doesn’t want to put out any music that is “mediocre” - something she accuses the music industry of accepting far too easily.>https://twitter.com/ntsikimazwai/status/815787016797507584?ref–src=twsrc%5Etfw
This is not the first time that Ntsiki has taken shots at the music industry for being what she says is average. In July last year‚ the star criticised local hip-hop artists‚ claiming that they were not talented but just confident.
“In South Africa‚ a lot of the time confidence gets called talent...and this happens in the mainstream kakhulu . If you need to be borrowing another rapper’s lines...then maybe you’re not a rapper love. Imitation is not art‚” she tweeted.
