When it comes to the music industry, we often hear about artists announcing their retirement and moving on to other ventures. But for South African rapper Khuli Chana, music is his true calling and retirement is on hold.
In a recent interview on 947, Khuli Chana opened up about his previous decision to plan his exit strategy from the music industry. He revealed that he had ventured into other businesses, only to face failure and even get scammed.
“I started to jump into other ventures and try to invest. I’ve been scammed. I’ve had a lot of failed ventures, you learn from that because I started becoming desperate. I got to a point where I was like I needed to start working on my exit strategy,” Khuli Chana shared.
Despite these setbacks, Khuli Chana realized that music is his true passion and calling. He expressed how every three years or so, he would contemplate retiring and put out a statement about it, but the love for music always pulls him back.
“Music is my true calling and every three years or so I want to put out a statement about how I’m retiring and it keeps calling me back. That statement is on ice, I will never retire. I think I will retire when there’s no music left in [me] and [I] do not even need to make an announcement for something like that,” he added.
Khuli Chana’s dedication to his craft is admirable. Despite facing challenges and setbacks in other business ventures, he remains committed to creating music and sharing his talent with the world.
It’s not uncommon for artists to explore other avenues outside of music. Some find success in these endeavors, while others realize that their true passion lies in their art. Khuli Chana’s story serves as a reminder that sometimes, it’s important to stay true to oneself and follow the path that brings the most fulfillment.
As fans, we can continue to support Khuli Chana and his music, knowing that his retirement is on hold. We can expect more incredible songs and performances from this talented rapper in the years to come.
