There were things that were random and I didn't know it would lead to this she says.
There really isn't an African language I cannot communicate in... Expect maybe Portuguese.— Sho Madjozi, rapper
Sho Madjozi says that her dream is to be global.
I have a lot of love for African languages she adds.
During the interview, Sho Madjozi admits that interning at Channel O was tough because she had a hard time being in an office environment.
After University, I found it hard to be in any structured environment she says.
Sho Madjozi says that she grew up in a small village.
I grew up in the rural areas and my first home was literally a hut she says.
Sho Madjozi says that the weirdest part about her upbringing was the fact that her dad was white.
We didn't speak English, my dad would speak Tsonga to my siblings and I adds Sho Madjozi.
I grew up feeling normal because everybody in the direct area was related to me... It's only when the world started getting bigger, then my life started to seem abnormal and bizarre.— Sho Madjozi, rapper
