Why did you make this song?
Making the music came quite naturally, I had a hook in mind before I started creating the music. It began to take shape and just flowed. It was at this point I knew I wanted a feature, someone who not only could put a killer verse on it but someone that would take it to a different place. So, without a doubt, I reached out to Moelogo who blessed the track with his magic perfectly. It’s all about feeling when it comes to making good music.
What do you want to achieve in your music career?
To be one of the greats. I love making music and how it makes people feel. To be one of the best producers/artists, giving people music that creates soundtracks for different moments in their lives would be a great achievement.
When did you start loving music and what are you creating next?
When I was in primary school I was a part of an orchestra. Being a part of something so big started my love for music and collaboration.
There was always music around at home and I played several instruments including teaching myself to play piano. I can play my computer keyboard like it’s a keyboard as well which always comes in handy in the studio.
– This is the second single from my debut artist project which will feature some other artists too. The first one was called Take Time and featured Doktor. Coming from behind the scenes as a producer I excited because this project will give people a better understanding of who I am.
Describe your sound.
I don’t think I have a set sound. I have made music in many different genres.
Afro Beats was a strong driving force for this particular track. Artists like Davido and Burna Boy have songs that influenced the feel of this song, so I would say it’s a fusion of West Indian and African cultures but I make whatever feels good and fun. I don’t stick to one genre, I never have. All I can say is I make good music.
What do you enjoy most about being a musician?
The freedom of the creative process and the ability to make emotions come alive through music.
