Tipcee Opens Up on Her Career, Growing Up & Relationship with DJ Tira


Gqom artiste and rave of the moment Tipcee has opened up on her career. The Fakaza hit maker told Times Live on how her career began and how DJ Tira has been an influence in making her a household name.

She told the news outlet, “At first it was hard, I mean all of sudden there were a lot of people interested in my work. People who loved me and some who didn’t. Then there was the media but Tira trained me well. I am here to stay. As a brand, I know who I am and I know what to share and what not to share.”

“I’ve known Tira for a while, he’s always kind of been a guide in my life. I met him a long time ago while I was a promo girl for an alcohol brand. Around 2009, he knew I had an interest in music. Fast forward to a couple of years ago, I began doing vocals for Big Nuz and even some of his songs then he saw potential in me.”

Tipcee also revealed her dad never supported her career despite studying IT. “My dad never really understood how I could wanted to music a career, he actually didn’t like it one bit. But I went to school and still pursued my music when I can. I’m glad I didn’t give up, because now my parents are living the dream and I’ve proven that I wanted it hard enough to work for it,” she added
