What has been your saddest time in music?
I believe music only gets sad moments. When one starts doing it for commercial purposes because, well you got to pay for literally everything and you realize that your talent is almost the least requirement.
How different is your music?
My music is Unique because these are real life stories. I tell these stories in a unique perspective that is easily understood without using a lot of Words to complicate and its serious music in a joking way. Bizonto is great example of my music. You can look at it in these two difrent perspectives.
It’s an expression of how the old generation perceives our generation. The way we are undermined in the society and the fact that we can get away with anything because no one takes us serious but again the world could Miss a lot of what we are capable of offering if they give us chance. With a lot going on in the world and being able to do absolutely nothing our mental status is challenged and we cannot fight it but rather accept the fact that we are running mad.
Well, who writes your music?
I write my music and other peoples music

In 2020, I released the song ‘Commander in chief’. It was a politically motivated song because of the environment.

How has the internet impacted the music industry?
The internet is the only thing why the industry is surviving right now since mainstream media is people’s business it requires some amount to get that promotion you need.
We are left with the internet as the easy way to reach out to our fans and me personally the internet is making me I’m grateful.
And the sexiest female musician you admire?
Sheebah the G.O.A.T
And the challenges so far?
Been challenged as a performing artist but as a service provider, I think the industry needs to find more ways of monetization so that we the musicians work with satisfied service provide for better execution.
What would wish to change in the music industry?
I would bring back record selling and all this kind of promotion could be resulting into telling fans out there to go buy my latest music.
Next five years….
Next for me is more music now that I have seen people love what I give them I’m going to do it more and more.
