Reho Travel’s CEO Karsten Horne reveals that his ultimate fear is to be taken too seriously, so in this exclusive interview, he introduces us to his alter ego, the rapper – Kant Sing.
His first release – ‘Forgot my pants’ is a song that echos the frustrations of
being in lockdown, unable to leave his suburb to go shopping and the
realisation that if the world is going to end, what’s the point in wearing
I sat down with Karsten over an iced lemongrass tea with honey, because apparently, that’s de rigueur for a modern-day rapper to find out.
Make sure you’re ready for this. It’s the video you have been waiting your entire life for. Kant Sing even knocked back offers from Rolling Stone and NME in favour of KarryOn.
So, let’s get in to it.
Introducing you to Kant Sing…
Sam: So Karsten, you’ve gone from a CEO to a rapper, where did that
motivation come from?
Sam: Really, us? How did we inspire you?
Kant: Just the way you swapped the C with a K, that was lit AF.
Sam: Karsten, in recent times you’ve made a name for yourself, why
change it up now?
Kant: It’s Kant, with a silent T
Sam: Oh, um sorry
Kant: Hey that’s ok, just keepin’ it real. But yeah, Karsten had a bit of a
name until he missed the podium in the Travel Industry Hot Man for 2020
poll. Seriously he was beaten by Andy “Sky News” Buerckner and Dennis
“tik tok” Bunnik.
“Hey, don’t get me wrong, I don’t wanna diss those ballers – but yeah, those guys they just be flossin.”

Sam: Can’t even understand how you made the top 10. Anyway, tell me
Kant: I’m the world’s first fully sustainable rapper using recycled material.
Sam: Did you write the line “If I go outside, I will let it hang, like the tree that fell in the forest” or is that recycled?
Kant: Many have asked if I’m into subjective idealism but nah, it’s a
reference to a tree that fell in a forest.
Sam: Did you hear it?
Kant: You’re a dime, nice pick up. Nah saw it on a meme and thought it
was da bomb.
Sam: Via which channel do you expect most people to find your music?
Kant: For sure the new QF Channel, I hear it is the newest capability for
Sam: So, what’s next for Kant, are you going to make a hologram of yourself?
Kant: Nah, been talking to yer boss Matty L and thinken’ we might get in
the lab and reprise an Oils classic – “I didn’t read about it” I can see the
headline now Kant Sing + Kant Dance are rapping to save the world.
Sam: Now that would be cool, he’s certainly got a head like a former Labor
Politician and moves to match.
Kant: Ha-ha, you’re da boss Sammy, gotta shoot now as I’m havin’ a getty
in the crib tonight.
Sam: Thanks for your time, I know how much it means to you.
