Shaunistoz Interviews Thoyiz

At The Beginning Of The Year I Got A Chance To Sit Down With The Most Featured Artist On This Blog THOYIZ And Asked Him A Few Questions So That Yall Get To Know Him Better.

Shaunistoz
What’s your favorite thing to do when you aren’t writing/producing/­playing etc?

Thoyiz
I love chilling with friends and family because they inspire me the most for making music.

Shaunistoz
Have you always enjoyed the art of music?

Thoyiz
Yeah, from as young as two years old my mom told me I was able to memorise and sing lyrics of songs, and my family has always been a family that comes together with music so I’ve always had a strong connection with music.

Shaunistoz
When did you first start writing and What did your family do to encourage you?

Thoyiz
Lol that’s actually a funny story because I was never encouraged to do music, I started writing my own material when I was 12 years old, whenever I used to get a hiding for being naughty, I always took my pen and pad and started writing with tears in my eyes lol which would make me get a hiding even more when they found things I was writing, so me doing music was never really embraced as a career but it was my escape from things that were happening around me at that time.

Shaunistoz
Who else in your family sings?

Thoyiz
Lol we all sing really koda 2 of my uncles decided to take it as a career, they do kwaito.

Shaunistoz
Who are your musical inspirations?

Thoyiz
I listen to a lot of Drake, his approach to music really inspires me to take my own route and do it to the fullest, and Of course my Qembu EscombePlaasMusic, we’re on the same page of creating beautiful music and I’m really feeling what we do.
