Costa Titch has opened up about how life is as a successful rapper in the music industry today.
The 2-time South Africa Hip Hop Awards winner talked about the anxiety and pressure that comes about after one becomes a successful and public figure in the music scene in excruciating details according to his side of things.
Costa Titch is way more focused on making his music knowing quite well that not everybody will love it, he has an open mind in understanding that his music isn’t for everybody.
The question the Nkalakatha hitmaker was asked was; “How do you deal with all the pressure and sometimes the prejudice of being a celeb?”

Costa Titch went on to answer the fan by being as direct as possible telling his truth and what he believes is the best way to deal with pressure in the industry.
“No one can prepare you, I just have to remind myself that God put us here for a reason, This wasn’t luck, this was pure hard work over years and years with no results.
1 day everyone likes you, you say 1 wrong things and the next day they all hate you. Rather just keep quiet and let the music talk.
I’ve had crazy amounts of anxiety hit me because of the pressure. And also just had to remind myself that not everyone will like my music.
More than anything I’m just going to be me and focus on those that appreciate me. We didn’t work this hard to get here and let the pressure kill it all. We coming hard.” Costa Titch answered the question.
