Marvellous: What's happening Mr. Justin, you alright, man? So tell us a little bit of what you're doing, brah.

Juzzy: Cool. So, as Juzzy – my name is Justin – professionally known as Juzzy. I'm an artist, songwriter, singer and rapper. I'm also a qualified sound engineer, and CEO and founder of De Boov Studios 🎤🎚️🎹

M: 🤯 Starting it, man – what inspired you to just do this crazy thing? 

J: I think ever since I was a kid, I had this vision to be an artist 🧑‍🎨  Also during that process, I developed a passion to help other people 🤗 So about five years ago, I received a fully paid scholarship to get trained professionally in the UK – in Manchester 🇬🇧 I received training such as vocal training, reduction – everything. And then things just started from learning from my experiences and stuff. So yeah, that's where it all started. 

M: Starting up this thing bro. It must have been like, financially – dawg 🤐 Talk a little bit about that, How did that look? 

J: Sure. As I said, I'm a qualified sound engineer. I studied for 3 years doing a degree in Sound Production at SAE. I promise you, 10 years ago, I started with my first laptop, first microphone – probably the cheapest on the market. Slowly but surely, I started working, doing some gigs and stuff. And time went by, I just started racking things up and now I'm left with a studio that is worth +- R300,000.
