Young Stunna explains why he calls Kabza De Small his father

Written by on 13 July, 2023

Young Stunna acknowledges Kabza De Small as his father, and he’s shed more light on the reason behind his decision.

In a recent interview with TshishaLIVE, the Adiwele crooner says the Amapiano king is a father to him because he gets to learn things beyond music.

Stunna further claimed that De Small is a blessing to everyone close to him.

That’s my father, I call him my father because he teaches you more than music. It is not about music to him, this is a calling, and we shouldn’t play with it because we are going to suffer. I feel like Kabza is a blessing to everyone who is close to him and if he doesn’t like you that means your spirit is not as pure as you think it is, you need to fix something.

He also spoke about the need to respect where you come from, especially the elders.

“I swear it’s not about music to him. You can have the talent, be a superstar, be the best dressed and have money as much as you want, but if you don’t respect where you come from, your elders and ancestors and the teachings they have taught you shows everywhere you go.

Young Stunna said he gets congratulated by Kabza for his success and growth.

“Him being able to call and tell me I’m doing well, he’s really proud of me and to tell me to keep going warmed my heart,” the singer said.

The musician helped take the world of amapiano internationally following his 2021 hit single Adiwele and his subsequent debut album Notumato, which was released in October of the same year.

Hailing from the humble township of Daveyton, Ekurhuleni, Young Stunna reveals that much of the inspiration for his music comes from his life story.

“Where I grew up it was hard. I grew up from the shacks, from the slums, from the trenches, where we had to sell something to be something. I had to sell snacks and be at the corner and be at the car wash to get studio time. Because studio [time] back then was R100. R100 was a lot for us, it’s nothing now but it was a lot for us kids and we had to hustle for it, so my music is based on real life.
