El-Fez, an indie artist in the Bloem scene, has been in the game since the early 2000s. Having quit music early on to further his studies and pursue a career in construction, he’s back in the music business pursuing a career as a rapper.
A qualified civil engineer, El-Fez is using his formal job as a Senior Home Inspector and his construction business to fund his promising music career and publishing company.
On one of his latest singles ‘King of my Hood’, featuring fellow Bloem-based rappers Castino and Thwenny Twenny, he doesn’t shy away from the perks of his cushy job and government tendering as he boasts about his lucrative salary and political connects;
“I earn more than half a mil every annum,
Just from my 9 to 5,
If you lost two million like I did you’d never survive,
I’m used to swimming with the sharks, MECs and the likes,
BEE lifestyle, now its time for me to thrive”
And he goes on to say;
”Ezi’ntwana ngeke zing’tshele nix,
I can afford it,
I took my Jeep to the pozi without a deposit…”
It’s refreshing to hear this type of honesty in hip-hop, it’s unheard of.
