Hostix Mabuse On How Social Media Is Damaging The Youth. Like most older people legendary musician Sipho ‘Hostix’ Mabuse has expressed his views on the impacts social has on young people which is denying them a chance to experience real genuine things in life.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE the star said that at the root of the youth’s problems is a focus on social media.
He said if there’s one thing his generation valued, it was confronting each other and issues head on.
“We’ve always preferred to engage personally and face to face with each other when addressing issues and matters. It reminds you that there’s a human at the end of the conversation. That human touch is more impactful, it has always been.”
Hotstix, who has taken a lot of young artists under his wings to mentor, said in addition to passing on his music knowledge, he always emphasized the importance of not letting social media control you.
The Burn Out hitmaker has what he calls an “efficient” presence on social media. He has a team in place to deal with all his accounts.
“Unfortunately, social media is creating a situation where soon people would rather talk to robots than each other. And that is a big problem. Not only for artist trying to make music that speaks to people, but for ordinary folk.”
