“My work rate is inspired by sabotage from the awards netumwewo as well as some deejays that don’t like playing my music.
“That’s where my inspiration comes from these days.
“They make me feel like I’m upcoming and unknown so I have to work hard till I get recognised,” he said.
Speaking about the new song and its video video, he said:
“It’s a love song which talks about a relationship that’s being haunted by past relationships.
” The guy is basically telling his partner that we have all been hurt and heartbroken but let’s not make that have an impact on our relationship.
“The guy asks the girl not to compare him with the other people that she has been involved with because they are different.
“The video was shot in Capetown and directed by Walle Visuals whilst the song was produced by Casper Beatz.”
He revealed that he has more music and videos to release during the course of the year.

Going forward, Qounfuzed added that he is now aiming at collaborations with international artistes.
“My aim is to start engaging with international artistes so the audience gets broad.
“Locally I think I have achieved everything apart from bagging an award or a single nomination at the local award shows.
“I just think it’s not for everyone and I have come to peace with it.
” My focus now is to go on the next level
“I’m really grateful to my management who has supported my craft as far as video funding is concerned.
“My visuals have now improved 10 times more and we are even aiming higher,” he said.
