10 Questions For: Mathew Gold

Best known for his smooth and dreamy vocals, Mathew Moolman also known as Mathew Gold has created a name for himself in the music industry. With tracks like ‘Lay Down’ and ‘Nevermind’, this Cape Town-born muso is sure to make your heart melt.

1. How would you describe what you do for a living? 
It’s a dream come true. My passion for the arts goes into many different directions but music is my first love and I feel grateful for what I have achieved thus far.

2. What is your most vivid childhood memory? 
Playing basketball - I lived 150-metres away from Montevideo Primary School where I attended. I was often the first kid at school playing basketball from 6am.

3. If you could invite any three people, dead or alive, for dinner, who would they be and why?
1. Bob Marley - To finally do that collaboration.
2. Nelson Mandela - He must have thousands of amazing stories.
3. Notorious BIG - To find out who murdered him.

4. If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why?

5. How would you complete this sentence? The South African cabinet should include a Minister of ____________.
More Provinces!

6. What would you say is the biggest misconception about you? 
The biggest misconception people have about me is that they think my life is perfect.

7. What is your (honest) opinion of Cape Town? 
I was born in Cape Town so I will always love and be in favour of the Mother City. One never really leaves Cape Town. 

8. What's the greatest fear you've had to overcome to get where you are today? 
I remember once being asked to enter a tank full of stingrays, after refusing for days I eventually gave in but I was still the most nervous I’ve ever been in my life. They couldn’t hear me when I was screaming like a baby in a scuba suit in the sea.

9. What's the one thing you'd like to achieve before you die?
Get nominated for a Grammy Award.
