‘My parents, my number one fans’
Local hip hop artist ‘Nest’ going places!
Rustenburg – Tlhabane-born hip hop artist Otlotleng Koitsioe, better known by his stage name ‘Nest’ is very grateful for the support he has received from his parents and teachers so far during his new but promising music career.
This Selly Park Secondary School grade 11 learner hopes to make a huge impression at the upcoming Boltz Awards on 25 September. The awards is a platform to uplift and recognize upcoming artists from South Africa by helping them to build a solid fan base.
“My parents are very supportive of my music. They are my number one fans. They support me with transport allowances and are always there for me,”
Koitsioe said. “Our school principal and teachers are also very supportive, and I am very grateful for this,” he added.
Otlotleng’s father, Peter Koitsioe, is employed as a branch manager of a local building company while his mother works at Royal Bafokeng Platinum Styldrift Mine as a shift supervisor.
‘Nest’ is currently working on an EP (extended play record), which he hopes to release soon.
“I have shared a stage with Khuli Chana, Casper Nyovest, Nasty C and the others. I have learnt a lot from them,” he said.
He hopes to leave an indelible mark during the Boltz Awards. “Winners get prizes, marketing and sponsorship benefits. Artists receive votes to win so fans and supporting structures need to show their support through voting for their favourite,” he concluded.
