When did making music begin for you?

I started out with freestyling in school when I was 8 or 9. And I only started ‘raping’ actively on by beats when I turned 14. I found a balance in my dynamic artistry and started singing.

How do you approach creating a song?

Usually, I just sit down, pour some WATER in my cup, – very important -, listen to a beat and record the first standout melody that comes to my head. Now this melody has to be hard and it doesn’t have to be in sequence. It could be the hook, outro or even second verse first – wherever I feel the melody works best is where I start from.

How would you describe your sound?

I’ve heard people say ‘afrobeats’, I’ve also heard Alte, Rap and Rap fusion. I find myself agreeing with the latter most times. I think my music is a mixture of Afrobeats and everything else.

Who are your musical influences?

Musically, I’m influenced by almost everything I hear. But my sound sometimes is very reminiscent of people like Wande Coal, Drake, Bryson Tiller, Zayne and the likes. But there’s so much more; Wizkid, Burna Boy, Nasty C, Eric Bellinger, Shaggy etc.

What comes naturally to you when you’re in the studio?

Once I get the hook line, everything else becomes so easy. Hooks are probably the hardest parts to record in a song cuz they have to be catchy basically, they NEED to slap so I usually spend more time with them, but with verses, it’s much easier with them.

What can you tell us about the next project you’re working on?

I’m working on quite a few projects. Mars is basically done. And then I’m on a few other projects that I can’t disclose right now.

Did the pandemic had any influence on you creatively?

Yes and No. when it comes to the actual process, No. However, it gave me more time to express myself through my art, I probably made upwards of 20 songs during the pandemic. I doubt I would’ve been able to do so if there was no pandemic.

Do you have songs that your fans would be surprised you made? If so, how do they sound like?

LOL. My producers has told me on several occasions that a few songs I’ve made cannot be dropped any time soon. But still, I think people would be surprised that I’m on an amapiano track. The track, wish I could give more details, but I can’t right now.
