HEALTH OVER EVERYTHING AT 40!
Ntukza said that he injured his left ankle while training. “A very bad fracture, the Dr says I can’t exercise for over a month. I’ll be back.”
Speaking to MGOSI.co.za Ntukza said that he is currently training to uplift himself due to the fact there’s too much uncertainty during the lockdown and one needs to be health-wise.
“I need to really take care of my health because I am growing older now. I mean being 40 means that I have been growing and I need to take extra care of my health. The doctor said that my bones are still in form,” said Ntukza.
Ntukza said that he was in serious pain and that the prescribed medication is numbing the pains.
WHAT ARE YOU UP TO?
In terms of what he’s currently doing, he said that he’s been around and since the break up with Teargas he has released four full-length albums, which include: Family Over Everything (2016), El Elyon (Hebrew For ‘God the highest – 2018), and Rebirth in 2019.
He also hinted that he might drop his fourth solo studio album before the end of this year.
“Releasing so many projects proves that I still got that work ethic. People should go to all the relevant music streaming platforms and listen to my music,” said Ntukza.
TEARGAS APPRECIATION & POSSIBILITY OF COLLABS!
Ntukza told MGOSI.co.za said that he’s happy that former Teargas members still appreciate him and his work publicly.
“After our break up I received a lot of backlash from a lot of fans and other people within the very same industry. We wanted to do things using a democratic system – if two guys agree to something you must know the one that is left will just have to go with what has been voted by the other two,” said Ntukza.
Ntukza said that he is also happy to see MA-E and K.O doing well and that he would like to see young upcoming musicians taking the space to keep the legacy alive.
Ntukza told MGOSI.co.za that if there’s an opportunity for us getting back together there’s none much we can do as a band but we can still drop singles.
UPCOMING TALENT & CLOUT CHASING!
“It’s so unfortunate that some of the young ones haven’t really been exposed to the raw talent that we bought when we came through. Basically, what I am trying to say is that when we came it was so difficult to break through the market, and for them, there are means such as digital marketing with a possibility of making their craft go viral, of course with good content,” said Ntukza.
Ntukza also advised that upcoming artists should be careful of clout chasing, ending up saying the wrong things that can end up getting them blacklisted in terms of opportunities.
Earlier this year Ntukza announced that his album Rebirth was available to be streamed live on Google Play and it’s currently available in all digital music streaming platforms.
