Q: Who is Stitch?
A: Stitch is a crazy, skitsofrantic that decided to give his "other" personality the very bizzar but also meaningful name. Born in the same location of God "Golgota 13" but was a very naughty dude so got sent to my mom in S.A, long story short they didn't give me the name Stitch for nothing. I'm deadly lyrically.

Q: How did you fall in love with the rap game?
A: It started at school, I was and Still am a big Eminem fan, cause I relate to his music. My friends would always tease me for being light in complexion, and he made it cool to be a crazy, not just that but I felt I can change the Namibia industry like i'm Photoshop, so I tried and here I am

1. Stitch...its my first commercial year in the game and look what I accomplished.....a lot! I'm the best that's right.
Q: Do you think the rap game is sleeping on Female rappers in Namibia? 
A: Nope they just not confident enough, they got it but women "female rappers" need a back bone in this industry which I haven't seen yet.....if you guys wanna get signed halla, I got you
Q: Who would love to collaborate with?
A: I wana work with Paradox, PDK, Gazza, Lady May, Dogg, etc. Wanna work with everyone before I do"what I still have to announce "
