“Never stop working on your dream. Yes, it won’t be easy, but keep pushing. It’s only a matter of time before you make it,” says musician De Original Careless.
The multi-skilled muso had recently worked hard in the studio. His latest single entitled “Rekaofela” with JoviSlash is a testimony that hard work pays off! It’s a big hit!
Please, listen to this great song 👇👇
He will be shooting another music video for another single titled “Baby Powder“. And the Music video will be out on Channel O, first week of March 2022.
Getting only 30 minutes of interview from De Original Careless is an achievement! He’s got his hands full, and finding him is a miracle!
Born in Mafikeng (Maftown), the man has an extraordinary gift. He is a radio host (1912 Online Radio), actor, comedian, film producer, a Brand Ambassador for Wakoo Mulla App and Michelle Brewery.
He started his music career in 1999 when he was in high school (Batswana Commercial Secondary School). He gradually developed his skills, then started doing demos and became one of Mafikeng’s well-known underground artists.
In 2006, he did a song known as Motswako All-stars with Cassper Nyovest and Notshi – Killer Bee. This took her musical career to a high degree of fame.
He had to put his musical career on hold for some time, due to legal issues he had with Somizi Mhlongo (regarding a joke he made about him).
As a comedian of note, making jokes about celebrities is part of his game.
And that empowered him to focus more on acting. This was the time where he created more comedy skits featuring well-known musicians like Rethabile Khumalo “Umlilo” by DJ Zinhle and Mthandazo Gatya “Senzeni” and well know actors such as Sifiso Sibiya from Ifalakhe (Mzansi Magic) & Durban Gen (Etv).
He also worked with Cruz Afrika & Ntosh Gazi (Mr John Vuli Gate) on their newly released song called Umjolo.
His dedication and passion saw him securing a lead role in a series called Keng Daai Deng (the mystery bag) of 6 episodes.
He told Alex Reporter that he had been musically discovered by Linda (ex manager of the late Oleseng Shuping).
“I was 20 years old, ” he says, adding that he was also inspired by the late HHP and American Rapper Ja Rule.
He is currently working with a production company called Cava Hie Media House, for short films and musical videos.
He says in the near future “I want to be more like the Fergusons Films and hire unknown actors to showcase their talents”.
