During his visit to the secondary school, Nyovest, who traces his roots back to Malawi, spoke about chasing dreams and hard work.
“My grandfather grew up in the village but left Malawi looking for a better life, he had a dream. Everyone has a dream, we have aspirations which determine how far we [are] going to get. You can be whatever you want to be.
“I started my music in my bedroom and wanted to become a big rapper. My friends laughed at me when I said I wanted to become a millionaire and now they look at me as their inspiration,” he shared his story.
Commenting on his trip to Malawi, the rapper expressed his excitement to be in the country and said “it was a special trip”. The 24-year-old indicated it felt amazing to be in Malawi and speak to his people for the first time.
