Africa’s new music king, Focalistic, covers the September/October issue of GQ South Africa.
The 25-year-old Pretoria native – real name is Lethabo Sebetso – is one of Mzansi’s hottest rappers right now. He is best known for his hit song Never Know featuring Cassper Nyovest, as well as his 2020 EP titled Quarantined Tarantino.
Focalistic’s style of music is versatile. He calls it Pina Tsa Ko Kasi, and although he doesn’t consider himself to be a rapper in the traditional sense, he has showcased his rhyming skills on beats ranging from Trap to Kwaito and even Amapiano.

For his GQ cover, the young star made history by going back the hood. The cover shoot took place in Zone 2 of the Ga-Rankuwa township, situated just 37km outside of Pretoria to be exact, and a place that’s very dear to his heart.
Focalistic is not only a talented musician but also a gifted soccer player. As a young child, football was a huge part of his life, thus he dubbed the nickname Pitori Maradona – a reference he frequently uses in his music today.
Inside the feature, GQ hangs with the African superstar, revealing more of his life, career, and what the world can expect to see next.
