According to Masicka, the hardships and going through different stages in his career were some of the most ‘enjoyable moments’. He then urges the younger artistes to appreciate the different stages of their career and not just the end result.

With regards to the growth in the music, Masicka contributes his improvement to “constructive criticism,” he says earlier he had “too much” lyrics in the songs and agrees with that earlier criticism.

‘They Don’t Know’ was a career-changing song, says Masicka who went on to state that initially it was not his “favourite song”, however, he said over time the song grew on him because it has an addictive thing to it and it’s simplicity yet detailed, with regards to his journey.
