Kwesta took to his Instagram to reveal how his wife and daughter were in need because he had NO MONEY to provide for them.
The rapper revealed that he was broke and could barely score a show. He explains how he couldn’t even afford his daughter’s first birthday.
The 32 year old tells us how his wife Yolanda Vilakazi had to get money from her aunt and he almost skipped birthday out of shame.
Kwesta also explains how this motivated him and he vowed to always provide for them.
“When @khai.vilakazi was born my world was a mess. It was 2012, I shot the Boomshakala video in Cape Town, days after her birth. A month later, we went on THT(The Hangover Tour) with Cashtime Fam… A real tour! Like, we didn’t go to shows on the weekend and come back during the week… We were GONE! That shit ended in Jan and I came back home having had a life changing experience and no money.. Khai’s first year was confusing AF. I had become a father and that made me happy but I was broke too. I barely scored a show and when I did, that had to pay people who contributed to DaKAR which I was piecing together with the gents. I remember @yonessalvv got money from her aunt or something just to be able to have a little celebration for her 1st birthday. I almost didn’t even show up.. The shame of not just being broke but being a broke Kwesta almost got the better of me. I vowed to never put Yo or Khai in a situation of dire need like that ever again… Still working on it but all that shit motivated me.. Yo motivated me.. Khai motivated me.”
“This year we are expecting our second child and guess what… My world is a mess. The future is under threat and IM THE HAPPIEST MAN ALIVE, all at the same time(the new music will clarify) It’s not 2012 though. I will not place the burden of being motivated on Yo, Khai or Putsununu. I’m getting off the boot of this vintage masterpiece and I’m headed straight to Grindville. Been a tough 2020 but I’m MUCH tougher. B*tch I’m from K1. Letting you in from Monday. Love.
