His uncle was a big fan of hip hop and kwaito music and he used to play it all the time. And that has influenced Luke’s aspirations to what he does now as a hip hop artist.
Luke Starring (23) from Alexandra, north of Joburg said his love for hip hop music comes a long way when he was still in high school. “My music talent was influenced by my uncle, who used to play the likes of Tupac, Notorious B.I.G and some Kwaito hits,” he said.
Luke said it took time for him to realize his God given gift of being a rapper. “I only started writing my songs in 2011. Five years later (in 2016), I recorded and released my debut single called God bless the hustle,” said Luke.
He released his highly anticipated EP titled Can’t Stop Won’t Stop on his 21 birthday in 2017. “I want to show my creativity because I don’t see myself as a rapper but an artist that makes me a creative.”
After the success of his EP, he dropped two other singles called Shaka Zulu in November 2017 and his latest Re Ja Joy for the summer in November 2018. He said he plans to shoot music videos for the singles this year.
Luke said he is not only a rapper but he is also a model and has made appearances on SAL Magazine and Destiny Man to name but a few.
Luke said he is an event organiser and has hosted his big event Spring Opening at Kwa Bhekilanga Sports Ground in Alexandra. He is also hosting his annual hip hop show called Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Show.
Luke said he is making waves in the streets of Alexandra and he believes that he will soon be a South African Rap Superstar.
This rising star has shared the stage with Mlindo The Vocalist, Team Mosha, Nadia Nakai, Julian Gomes and Ralf Gum to mention a few.
