CHITUNGWIZA based rapper Nkosilathi “Voltz JT” Sibiya has revealed that his collaboration with Holy Ten on the track called How Far was mainly driven by public demand though it was one of his wishes to work with the latter.

“Most of the fans were requesting the collabo especially in the social media comment sections.
“It was by public demand because they think me and Holy Ten are of the same calibre.
“Personally I am a fan of Holy Ten’s sound. He told me he’s a fan of my sound too. So the collabo was just pure chemistry and flawless, even the recording sessions had so much vibes to them,” said Voltz JT.
Though most hip hop fans are loving the collaboration, the 22-year-old revealed that there is a section that was clamouring for a beef between him and Holy Ten.
“The fans are going crazy. They have received the project well, however there are some fans who were disappointed with me working with Holy Ten because they wanted me to beef with him and create a feud.
“For the sake of progress I chose collaboration over beef,” he said.
“This song will be a step forward in my career. Featuring a mainstream artiste makes me closer to being one,” he added.
Voltz JT said the song , How Far, is to impact positive vibe to people.
