From local boy to rapper with a vision

LEPHALALE — The 22-year-old Curbs Frankson, a former learner from Phegelelo Secondary School in Marapong, recently completed his studies, following a path in Commerce, majoring in Accounting. He says his choice of study field was inspired by his high school Accounting teacher, Mrs Baloyi in Phegelelo Secondary School.

Frankson started his pre-school at Kopano ke Matla crèche and according to him, he always said to both of his parents that he is going to create employment and not just be employed. He is currently on a path to realizing his dreams as he completed his studies in a timely manner. He graduated at Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology (formerly known as PC Training and Business College) in Church Street Pretoria on 15 May.

Frankson’s vision incudes him and his friends being self-employed with opportunities that arise in the entertainment industry. He also dreams of getting more young people involved in being part of the unemployment solutions rather than being part of the crisis itself.

He released his official single, titled “Atmosphere”, on 4 July 2018 and Frankson promised his following and interested parties a full body project that he hopes will cure the stereotypes and stigmas attached to Rap as a Culture. The project’s release date is 15 July 2018.

Frankson has a vision of visiting the local schools in Lephalale and deliver talks to the youth as a whole on the importance of following one’s dreams and how that does not mean one should not stay in school. He also believes that there is education everywhere and not only in class.

He urges community members and business owners to assist him in exposing issues that are affecting the youth such as drug abuse, lack of financial education and the misconceptions of artists as public figures. Should anyone be interested in this vision, please send an email to

Curbs Frankson has been a resident of Lephalale in Marapong from a young age until he completed his matric (1996-2014). He relocated to Pretoria to further his studies and to better his music career.

He is still a resident of Lephalale because his parents have found employment and permanent residency in Marapong.
