What’s an average day like for you?

An Average day of mine consist of the following, when I wake up i reflect on life and give thanks to God for allowing me to see another day which will allow me to continue the work & share gift of my talents from God, I do this via meditation in my thoughts or prayer.

Once I do this I then start my day, by checking/composing emails & messages related to my field of work, once I’ve completed that I sometimes like to exercise, and after that I begin work in the studio to create music, so long as I don’t have any other appointments to attend to.

What drew you to the music industry?

For me I would say we have music, which is one entirety and industry being the other, music being from God and Industry being something humans have made.

I was drawn to music by God, as my musical talent is from him via my Dad. My Dad is someone who loves music so growing up I’ve been surrounded by music weather it be at home or at church… or within my local area, I see music as a natural part of my DNA.

Now the industry is a different place
Which requires more business accord & is more money orientated and I would say I’m more about the music element of things more than the business side. But the business side is important in the world we live in to today. But the music side comes first for me as I see music as the voice of the soul that talks to our spirits.

Which famous musicians influenced you and How?

Musicians that have influenced me are;

Bob Marley – I say Bob Marley because his music was very spiritual and powerful to the world, his music carried positive vibrations that influences generations until now. I believe he is a prophet in music from God

Castro – I say Castro because growing up he is an artist which his music I connected well to, he allowed me to connect with my Ghanaian roots and Culture while living in the diaspora, he is a revolutionary artist of this era of life especially within Ghana/African music industry. He is also a man that mentored me before he went missing
And gave me great encouragement towards my music.

Skepta – I say Skepta because he is an act with shows great belief in his ability no matter what he always keeps on going and pushing boundaries, also he is of African decent and making success waves which for me give me confidence In being proud about my heritage.

How do you balance your music with other obligations ?

For me Music is part of my purpose in life so with regards to balance, it’s about making sure that I set my priorities straight. So long as I’ve done what I need to do musically then there will always be time for what is necessary outside of that

Do you collaborate with others? — What is the process?

Yes I do collaborate with other in many forms, for example I collaborate with artist, photographers, videographers, stylist, engineers.

To be honest or the process I just network and reach out to people I feel and try and make us work on projects related to the field of work.

What is your favorite part about this line of work, Your least favorite and Why?

My favorite part of the work is when I create or perform the work and people connect and gain an energy from it which I pray helps them.

My least favorite is the egos & negative side of the industry, those elements can block the purpose of music.

Have you ever dealt with performance anxiety?

Naturally you become anxious/ nervous before a show, but I always pray or have positive thoughts about what I am about to do, and once I hit the stage I hit a new element which none of the comes to mind. I’m just connect with the music & audience during performances.

Your favorite among your songs?
