“In the first verse, I was talking about my love life and how the past has affected my present. How I am hurting other people unknowingly because I was hurt too but I am willing to learn to give my heart away, in the second verse I talk of a close relative who is going through a lot, I try to help but and still, the relative continues to turn me down and lastly the third verse I rap about my friends and hip hop”, Kay Gee 40 said.
Like any other artist out there they face different challenges in this music industry journey one would have embarked on and for Kay gee40 his challenges are lacking visuals for his music.
“I need more visuals for this EP here, the first video we did was for ‘Mama Said’ and before the editing was completed the director Clyde Jones was locked down in SA. He is the one who directed ‘Ndiri Ghetto’video”, he said.
KayGee40, whilst waiting for the return of Clyde Jones, decided to pile up the work as he intends to do visuals for the whole EP.
“So I have to wait for him to come back and resume. I would love it if all songs on the project get a visual that will make the story complete”, he added.
