5 questions for Sebastian Moola

Sebastian Moola’s track ‘Find Change’ ft Psyko Beats was featured on our HYPE Sessions 96 tracklist

Siyabonga Sebastian Makunga AKA Sebastian Moola is a 31-year-old father of three boys. He realised his music passion in the early 2000’s when he was introduced to the legendary hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre’s ‘Chronic’ album. He took the decision to follow his music passion and pursue music as a career. In 2010 he was already in studio with the most influential up and coming artists in Johannesburg (at the time they were known as a group called the Ghetto Prophecy which had Tweezy and E Jay just to name a few). In 2011 he finally went back to his town of birth where he groomed his knowledge and became the artist, producer and entrepreneur we know today. He dropped his second project on 21 March and even has his own brand merchandise (Sebastian Moola Merch). Sebastian Moola has his sights set on becoming a well-known rapper from Mdantsane.

How long have you been making music, and how did it start for you?

I have been at it for like 15 years now. It all started at home but became a reality around 2008 when I stayed in JHB.

If you could collaborate with any artist, who would you choose and why?

Drake would be the person because I saw him become the greatest in his prime from being someone we never trusted coming from Canada… He’s the best to me!

What is your proudest achievement to date?

My own family is the first place, but also my skills in music and the business too is my proudest achievement to date.

Which artist is, in your opinion, the GOAT?

Sean Carter AKA Hov is the greatest of all time to me because he’s the real ni**a dream.

What can we expect from you in the coming year?

More music and appearances, as I am on a journey with the best in South Africa when it comes to being a versatile hip-hop DJ. That’s my brother Tsepho aka Reezyville. Stay tuned people because this is going to be the longest ride ever. We still need some tour dates to confirm our overseas tour, but we’ll leave it right there as we’re always working on our crafts and businesses. We will change the game for the better, because we never die, we multiply. R.I.P Jabba, Pro, Citi Lyts, Dimplez, AKA and Costa Titch and others too, because this list has become longer as I came closer to my dreams. May God bless us all.
