Five ‘kiff’ moments with The Kiffness
David Scott aka The Kiffness is one of the most vocal South African artists around and when I say vocal I don’t mean lead vocals 😊
I mean he is an active online commentator on topics that are relevant in society at the time. He also likes to shine a light on the challenges of being an independent musician and sometimes he just pokes fun at other artists and/or himself.
Who can forget the shade he threw at Sketchy Bongo for using a generic sample pack with little or no editing?
In fact, he can be so insightful he runs the danger of people forgetting that he makes really fun and entertaining music and is even more fun to watch onstage.
Just a short while back he released his first full length album called Soul Safari on Sony Music.
So, what does David Scott regard as kiff about being ‘The Kiffness…’
What’s important to me is that the ideas I create are worth sharing.”
The kiffest thing about finally releasing my album was…
When my mom WhatsApp messaged me and said, “I quite like song number 7”. It felt good.
Performing onstage with long-time friend Raiven Hunter is kiff because…
Apart from being a kiff oke, he has this kiff vocal pedal that can make you sound like a robot. Every now and then he lets me do the robot voice – it’s a real treat.
He’s also a sax and piano prodigy which takes a lot of pressure off me to be a musical prodigy and more of a fool on stage.
The song on Soul Safari that surprised me the most at how kiff people think it is, is…
White Privilege. I was prepared for a lot more hate, but people surprisingly seem to like it.
Well, except the dudes in the YouTube comments.
It’s kiff when people read my blog posts and respond (positively or negatively) because…
When people are kiff it makes me feel kiff.
It’s also kiff when people are offended because offence forces you to think about something that you may not have considered before.
At the end of the day, I don’t care what people think of me, or how they react to my ideas. What’s important to me is that the ideas I create are worth sharing.
It’s a kiff time to be alive because…
I can be sitting in my underpants on the couch, then have a kiff idea that I post to Facebook and it can be shared across the world in the matter of minutes.
I don’t think there has been a time where this kind of potential was possible.
