What are some of the challenges you are facing with the coming of COVID-19?
It has been hard because as an upcoming artist you have to sponsor yourself and your music and with these lockdown restrictions side hustles have been hard to conduct. Some of the things you have to sponsor include your paying to create music videos and paying the producers who produce the music.
Where does your inspiration come from?
From the society, the day-to-day issues which are in the society. I usually sing to raise awareness on contemporary issues that may be affecting the lives of different people in society.
Anyone you would want to collaborate with on a song and why
Collaboration is quite important because it brings new skills and new flavors to music so it is important in the music life of an artist. I would want to collaborate with Winky D. Yes, we are from different genres but I know it will work out. Winky D is one of the biggest artists in the country right now because he is super-talented and produces quality music, we would produce a club banger.
Achievements so far
- I have featured on Zimpapers Television Network on a diplomatic passport which has also featured big names such as Jah Prayzah, Ammara Brown, ExQ, and Nutty O.
- I had an interview with Radio Flora based in Hannover Germany and my song ‘Ndinochema’ featured on this channel
