Even though he has now picked himself up and is living a clean drug-free life, he has reflected on how his 2016 hit 'Hennessey' helped him overcome his addiction. He admitted that as a smart person who makes better decisions now, he had turned to drugs in the past, but thankfully for him, he is 'good friends with his demons.'

"As smart as I was I made mistakes too. I was fully a drug addict when I made Hennessy. That’s the song that made drugs not make sense anymore. At least I’m good with my demons. We good friends."

The Garden rapper has come out victorious in his battle with certain music giants who he had accused of not paying him any money for his music. Many thought he was indirectly accusing Cassper Nyovest of not paying the money due to him for his songs namely Hennessey, Garden, The Vibe, Tell Em Say, So High, Dem Ah Wind, etc.

He lamented how he had been silently fighting this battle alone but finally gained the courage to speak up.  "Been fighting a very silent legal battle. And when I win this case on Monday the humble sh*t stops."

Thankfully for the rapper, he has won his case against the unnamed record entity. Taking to Twitter he revealed, "A sincere thank you @KMalatji and the #TailorMadeLaw team for getting my catalogue back in my possession after all my calls, emails, and texts failed. Thank you #Africori for realising my catalogue was for none to earn from but myself. We’re setting a precedent," he said.

Taking his experience, he decided to school his followers about the beauty of staying true to oneself and knowing their worth. "Knowing your worth can only come from some kind of knowledge, so learn."

Still, on the topic of masters, Tshego revealed that he proudly owns his masters and is an independent artist however the reason for him still being independent is because he tried to sell them for a minimum amount of R6 Million however Universal refused his offer.

"After Ghetto Ruff in 2014 I went on to tell Universal it’ll be R6 million minimum if they want the masters on 1 album. They refused, and that’s why I’m still independent," he said.
