The new free and uninhibited 'Stogie T'.

Tumi Molekane is a South African rapper known to many as Tumi from the Volume.

But has now re-branded himself as Stogie T after taking a music break - a stogie is another term for a cigar.

Molekane says he's not the same man he was 10 years ago.

He adds that changing his name has enabled him to do music he wouldn't have done while he still went under the name 'Tumi'. Tumi says he has gone from a conscious artist to a free and uninhibited 'Stogie T'.

Life changes, people's ideas shift.
