Susan Athiei interviewed Swaggalicious Kdenk

Kdenk with Paleki during TPF4 in Nairobi, Kenya



Kuonck Deng Kuonck participated in the Tusker Project fame representing South Sudan together with Paleki. He expresses his experiences in an interview with , a reporter at the Citizen Newspaper.

Q: Mr. Kuonck, I believe your stage name K-Denk must have an origin.

A: Sure, it is a combination of three names, that’s Kuonck Deng Kuonck. This is how my fans know me.

Q: what really inspired you to audition for TPF?

A: Mainly my friends, they were the main inspiration, they believed in me and I did not let them down.

Q: initially the position was already for someone else who was called back on civic duty and could not make it to the contest, did it cross your mind that you would be the one to replace him?

A: not really, but when I was called I did not let them down, I responded immediately. South Sudan had to be represented by two contestants and I was honored to be the one doing it.

Q: were you surprised when you received the call?

A: not really. During the audition the answer was yes for me, so I believed in myself.

Q: In the house you seemed to get along well with most of the contestants, what is your secret?

A: I am a guy with swag and likes to make everyone laugh and feel good about themselves, I believe people like such a personality.

Q: During one of your stage presentation, you presented a Swahili song and judge Ian seemed not pleased at all, if I can recall well his comment was something like, “I thought I was beginning to understand Kisudanese…”, what effect did it have on your ego?

A: to be honest, Ian makes me nervous. This was a song I was chosen for and the house policy dictates that you must take the song chosen for you. I really could not speak Swahili. This is a song by TId who is known to be the fastest in the Bongo music industry, luckily, I am a rapper and therefore managed to try it.

Q: when you were put on probation, how did that feel?

A: well, it’s not easy being on probation, your chances here are normally 50-50.

Q: why do you think you were voted out of the house?

A: I believe people knew I was a stiff competition and if they did not vote me out on that particular occasion, then that was it, I was never going to leave again.

Q: what did you think of Paleki?

A: she is very talented. That is why she made it so far in TPF.

Q: Who was your favorite teacher?

A: Kabutha was my favorite, she changed me a lot, and Helen made my personality.

Q: what are you doing with your life now?

A: I’m continuing my music career. I am working on a project  “we are free”. I also made a song with South Sudanese kings, the track is South Sudan”. It is mainly about expression, excitement and how we got independence.

We also shot video on the 14th of this month with Ebony TV, it cost 3000SDG.  would like to recognize the special appearance of Silver X, Baz Mannaz of D.S.B, Sammy (upcoming musician), Southern Voice, Kodi Kodi (Court marshal), Rasta Jimmy, Rido Dingo, PNC, YP( holy land crew).

Will be participating together with Alamo Dipari in 3 concerts in Nairobi: Grandpa night, University night and leadership night. Alamo has decided to be the first South Sudanese woman to go international.

Q: any advice for the young artist?

A: do not give up. Believe in yourselves. Please listen to advices given to you by those with experience and never stop struggling.
