As a young person in South Africa, Focalistic believes that our leaders should give utmost attention to crucial issues that directly impact the youth and shape the future of our nation.
He emphasizes the urgent need to address the scarcity of effective leadership, which contributes to the high unemployment rate among young people.
Focalistic suggests that our education system should focus not only on traditional subjects but also on practical skills such as business management, ensuring that students are well-prepared for the job market.

He emphasizes the importance of providing quality education that goes beyond conventional teaching methods and caters to the diverse needs of South African students.
By adopting innovative and inclusive educational practices, Focalistic believes that young people can unlock their full potential and make meaningful contributions to society.
To aspiring artists who aim to follow in his footsteps, Focalistic advises them to stay true to their authentic selves and embrace their uniqueness.
He reminds them that being an artist means reflecting the times we live in and sharing their personal stories and experiences.
Focalistic believes that by staying true to themselves, aspiring artists will never go wrong and will find their greatest power in their individuality.
When considering his legacy, Focalistic envisions himself as a trailblazer who breaks boundaries and paves the way for others. He expresses gratitude for the opportunities to travel the world and perform, acknowledging that it was not always seen as a possibility for a rapper from s’Pitori.
Focalistic’s legacy centers around motivating and inspiring people to pursue their dreams and realize that with determination and hard work, anything is possible.
He aims to create a future where people are open to different possibilities and where the energy of productivity and purpose drives individuals towards success.
