Asaman sits down with 29 year old Karabo Moeketsi. He forms 1/5 of the popular South African fusion band The Muffinz.
I wanted to be a musician and/or evangalist.
Who stood as a father or male figure in your life and do you feel their influence was positive?
My uncle Mokwena. He did a great job. He taught me how to drive like a maniac and also how to run away from girls (hahaha, as if)
Did moving to Johannesburg change your outlooks in anway, regarding how you approach life?
Yes it did. Jozi is the fast paced life. Taught me how to think on my feet. It taught me that I need to be grounded in the world. This is also where I found my girl who is now about to be my on going partner.
What so you do on a professional level?
I am a professional singer and bass player. I am also the managing director for a technology company called Happaro.
Are you happy with what you do or do you have different prospects now?
I am happy. God has been faithful. The time to spread the 3rd angels message is soon approaching and I am getting ready. I can not wait to go home.
I know you to be extremely religious. Have you ever been in a position where your beliefs conflicted with something you aspired to achieve?
Well, I always make it very, very, very clear where I stand, and its either you take me and my beliefs or you don’t take me at all. God always does the rest.
Religious practice is no longer common practice. Do you feel it should be revisited by young men, and why?
Unfortunately or fortunately the time we are in is prophetic. These things must come to pass before Christ comes back. Our duty as God’s chosen people is to spread God’s word throughout the world.
Tell me about the ‘warrior races’ that you take part in, and briefly share your views on fitness and health
I like things 😂 Fitness races like the Jeep warrior do more than just test your fitness. It is about disciple, perseverance and heart. What do you give when you have nothing to give. Those disciples build your character in the everyday world. Plus its so much fun. I love the outdoor adventure and extreme sport life. It is refreshing! Decreases stress levels 300%. Healthy living is something that is found in the bible… When we are healthy we are happier; we save lots of money and we can better do the work of the Lord.
Karabo has shown immense interest in the Asaman campaign. His affiliation is not only appreciated but commended. Very few people are passionate about good causes. I will forever be in awe of his unapologetic and openly expressive religious stance. If only we were all so definite in our choices…
‘I am a perfectionist who is not a perfectionist; I am very relaxed but I believe there is a time for everything. No one said I cant have fun while doing it. I take everything I do seriously and put my all into it.’ – Karabo
