As I reflect back on the journey I have been on for a few years now, I am quite amazed with the transformation that I have experienced — almost all of them, in a positive way.
When I was a teenager, still searching for an identity, one of the not-so positive habits I formed was in the choice of music I listened. I started listening to hip-hop music or more specifically, rap music — the kind which used to have a warning on the CD cover of “explicit lyrics.”
This practice continued all through high school, university and the first few years after I completed my university studies. This behaviour even reached the point where I was listening to it at 6.00am in the morning driving to work.
