Lush by the Way – is an Eastern Cape soul and hip hop musician, producer, and aspiring motivational speaker. He is an artist for the people, as he speaks for the people.
Lush comes from a family of traditional healers (abantu abamâhlophe), were dreams are interpreted through one’s vision. Growing up, he was exposed to a lot of traditional and ritual ceremonies. As we all know the nature of the ceremonies; a constant sound of a pounding Traditional African drum, lots of dancing & singing in jubilation.
This is where his core inspiration as an artist lies as my music tends to encourage culture preservation, love and positive morale Ubuntu Bethu! This is evidently portrayed in my compositions, lyrically and beat wise.
