Love is beautiful is a song by a Hip-Hop artist Sekzin. It draws inspiration from the bitter-sweet realities of life to unapologetically give a sharp narrative as a prequel and sequel to a break-up. An ordeal so intense that left Sekzin rapping 'you got me doubting everything we had, maybe you played me from beginning to the end'. A nice rhyme by the way. Back to the song, you must be wondering, how was our homeboy (mentally, physically, spiritually, etc.) after the break-up? Well, all is served here raw, an audio of the song from YouTube at your service.
Make sure you also follow Sekzin on twitter and Instagram right after hitting the subscribe button on his YouTube channel. His music is also available on Slikouronlife. A new single featuring an artists who goes by the stage name of No Ghost from KZN (KwaZulu-Natal Province) is about to drop at anytime. A song that he promises to be all what fire is made of.
Hip Hop music has been his favorite genre from an early age. He cites Cassper Nyovest as one of his biggest inspirations. In his own words "I would say Cassper Nyovest, is one of my biggest inspirations, I relate a lot to his music, he is my role model, big Sean, and Drake..". During our interview, he also made an interesting remark " recently I've been listening to a lot of Phora’s music he inspires me because he is not afraid to open up ...which is one of the things that we men struggle with". A fact!
Although we never met in person. I could tell Sekzin is easy-going yet focused and wise. He has a 9 to 5 job at a local municipality in the sports department. In his own words, "that's how I hustle in order to afford studio time". Big up!
Our homeboy grew up as one of the triplets amongst six siblings. "What I liked about my childhood is that I was taught respect at an early age, I don't have to know you to respect you". Take note of this. He recalls a bit of a financial struggle while growing up. "So as you can imagine, there are certain things we didn't have while growing up as children because of affordability... we changed schools a lot...”. He recalls not having proper shoes and pants. "Which made me very uncomfortable because I would get teased or people would feel sorry for me... it also affected my school work but I still managed to pass then changed to another school again". He started his schooling at the Eastern Cape at a school called Ugie Primary and High school. He was eight years old at the time. His family later moved to Randfontein, Gauteng Province for better employment. A place where he grew up and still lives at. He completed his high school studies at Randfontein High School and finally went to Westcol Krugersdorp Campus to further his studies.
He currently writes and records his music. He plans to expand his repertoire by venturing into producing and making videos and films. An empire in the works.
Let us all support this man at all costs. I repeat, make sure you follow him on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and slikouronlife.
Love may not be perfect for Sekzin however, living your passion with people who you love and appreciate, life is definitely beautiful for Mr Sekzin.
